Agile training

Getting everyone at the company on the same platform before jumping into the midst of a transformation in inevitable. Hence, during our agile trainings, beyond the Scrum methodology basics, we cover the partner company's change story, specific large-scale model and pay special attention to the personal, human aspect of change by dedicate time to answer individual questions.

We usually recommend agile basics and role-specific trainings for leadership and all team members, but tailor them to team-specific needs and cases, with stunning learning experience brought to you by experienced agile coaches and trainers, and business leaders experienced in agile transformation.

Agile coaching

We know it from experience that your teams will be not ready to work in agile only by taking part in a couple of trainings. Instead, a lot of hands-on mentoring and coaching will be needed to get things going; to launch new agile teams, to boost effectiveness and productivity of the teams, to prepare Product Owners and the leadership for their roles, and to set up all processes and frameworks in the organization that are inevitable for agile operations in a corporation: e.g. clarification on new roles & responsibilities, performance evaluation system, career advancement logic, beyond budgeting system, OKRs and strategic overview. 

We have the largest agile coach team experienced in large-scale agile transformations in the CEE region.

Hybrid way of working

Helping you adapt to remote work challenges to make the best out of online and office work

Going forward from the COVID remote era, companies have the choice to go back to the office normal, keep the fully remote way of working or find a strategic balance between the two.

Developing a hybrid setup (combination of remote and office work) is seemingly the road most companies will take on the medium-long term combining the benefits of both in-person and remote work while mitigating risks to maximise productivity.

 

In order to minimise risks and leverage the benefits of this hybrid setup, we offer services along the diagnostics, design and implementation phases, addressing root causes for lasting impact.

 

Think you are all set for a hybrid setup?

You might want to look under the hood

Non-decisive meetings, productivity loss due to regular context switching, frequently arising conflicts and misunderstood priorities are all symptoms of multiple underlying causes. The impact of improperly chosen or insufficiently detailed practices, processes and tools becomes more apparent in a remote setup, requiring attention to minimise operational risks.

How we can help you

Diagnostics

Remote readiness and maturity assessment

With our proprietary tool covering organisational characteristics in six dimensions, we scan your organisation for opportunities and threats in order to assess the required treatment.

 

By creating a heatmap of areas to address and recommending a development plan for each affected team / function, we prioritise where your attention and effort should be directed in order to reach your strategic goals.

The dimensions we assess in detail are:

  • Responsibilities & Processes & Structure 

  • Technology and tooling

  • Leadership

  • Culture 

  • Communication

  • Individual wellbeing

Organisational consulting

Supporting to develop a hybrid way of working

Depending on your strategic goals, your current organisational maturity and mode of operation (traditional or agile), the approach to change can vary significantly.

 

Whether focusing on one team / problem or transforming organisation-wide processes and mindset, we help you build the effective collaboration that is essential to defining and maintaining a well-functioning hybrid operation. We help you with the following activities:

  • Helping define organisational goals

  • Selecting teams or functions to include and matching them with fitting remote or hybrid ways of working

  • Defining the desired end state, development steps and implementation methods

Training and coaching
