Agile Transformation

Agile transformation is not any easy process, especially if the company is not exactly small, where it is possible to make changes quickly and immediately see what is going well and where is a hidden problem. If it is a larger company or really large corporation, change is slow and often very painful. It requires a lot of effort and its success requires support from management / directors / owners that they give the teams enough time to overcome problems along the way. Also it will help to get someone from the outside of the company who is not part of the internal corporate structure, someone who is not feared about its "safe" position and can keep the outside view. Someone experienced with such a huge change. It can save you a lot of troubles.

Agile coaching at Prague / Brno / Ostrava / Pilsen / Bratislava and beyond

Have you just decided to implement Agile methods in your team or organization? Well, let’s say you’ve just either passed training or you’ve read several books or blogs about Agile and Scrum so you feel good and empowered to start. Nowadays, the most common and popular Agile process is Scrum. But you can use Kanban or combination of both – sometimes called Scrumban. Or go for Extreme programming as well. If everything is going well you are able to make Agile transformation successfully on your own. But such change is not as easy as people would expect. Not all companies and teams reach expected good level of adoption – the better performance, efficiency, flexibility, quality, cooperation and better relationship with customer. The transformation often goes slowly and you are facing number of small or big problems on your way. And no Certified Scrum Master will save you from failing.
