Leadership and Agile Transformation
The environment for companies is becoming more dynamic, more complex and thus increasingly challenging for executives (keyword VUCA = Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity). A person alone is no longer in a position to make the right decisions – it is increasingly important to use the creative and intellectual potential of all people in a company. Leadership is being redefined and that often means a significant change in culture.
Agility in the sense of vitality and maneuverability is an answer to insisting on an environment of high volatility, uncertainty and complexity. Agility is about quickly and correctly perceiving change, making quick and good decisions – at the core of good leadership, but with a high level of dynamism and a high degree of personal responsibility.
The agile manifesto as a common denominator of all agile approaches brings the necessary cultural change to the point:
Agility thus means completely redefining working methods and roles – the professional accompaniment of this change is essential. Our highly experienced coaches accompany you in the transformation of a classic organizational form into agile structures through training, coaching and on-site consulting – with a lot of passion, empathy and appreciation for people.
Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)
he Scaled Agile Framework for Lean Enterprises (abbreviation: SAFe) is an extensive descriptive framework to enable lean and agile work at the team, program, and portfolio levels. This makes “agility” manageable for larger projects and organizations. This scaling is based on the needs of each company and the experience and size of the agile teams.
After having been involved in consulting for more than 20 years, we are fundamentally critical of the so-called “fashion waves”. Nevertheless, we examine such concepts, identify the consistent core of them, to introduce them in a pragmatic way. Here we are guided by the premise: good is what works. Of all the concepts, the SAFe convinced us the most, and we are therefore proud to be able to offer not only appropriate consulting, but also the officially recognized training courses.
As a Scaled Agile Bronze Partner we are uniquely qualified to support large enterprises and government agencies through every phase of a Lean-Agile transformation. We provide:
We have multiple persons on our staff who are a Certified SAFe® Program Consultant (SPC) and have experience to lead the adoption of the Framework and launch Agile Release Trains.
Leadership Workshops and Trainings
For the success of the leadership, basic technical training, methodical and analytical skills as well as social skills are absolutely necessary. Through workshops, special leadership training and coaching, we support organizations in the professionalization of leadership skills and leadership culture.
This is how the term leadership comes to life, you acquire skills and get to know both classic and agile methods, how to inspire employees through values, visions and goals and how to motivate and lead them to goal-oriented action and team work.
In addition to these leadership methods, in our training courses you will also get to know approaches from executive coaching in order to reflect your own leadership behavior and to consciously develop it further.
