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.
How such transformation looks like? First of all you have to have a very good reason for such change. Agile is changing a culture and a change of culture is the most difficult, but once you made it, it sticks. If you don’t have any experience with Agile, you might want to start slow - select part of the company – i.e. one team, one product, one project and try there Agile, Scrum, Kanban while the rest of the company will not change yet. It gives you opportunity to understand what is Agile in your company about. You will very soon see both the biggest obstacles and potential improvements. After such experience you can continue with bigger change, focus to the corporate culture, synchronization across departments, building cross-functional teams, implement Agile product management - simply create an Agile company.
I mostly implement LeSS scaling model of Scrum or similar structures. Also there is a very good video from Henrik Kniberg about Spotify model. Such Agile transformation I like the best, because it implements Agile principles across the company and it dramatically increases the chance of success.
I have a hands on experience with transformation of small companies, as well as large corporations, where the change is not so fast. I know which way to take and which is better to avoid during the company transformation, I can speed up the overall process and make it less painful, I can help how to solve the problems during this transition process. I facilitate teams and teach them Agile practices; I help product people with agile product management, I coordinate transformation processes at the company level; Coach ScrumMasters/internal coaches/managers; I know how to apply Agile in sales and marketing; I know how to move these principles on the company level and not to end up inside the walls of SW development.
If you plan to make Agile transformation or just passing through it and you are stuck, or just wondering if you are on the right way, I’d be very proud to help you. It's a job that I love and enjoy, I know how to do it practically, and I’d be happy when we achieve together your goals.
