Executive Advisory Services

Aligned Technology works with executive teams to understand how a firm can better align their use of agile techniques with their business objectives. Many times these types of initiatives fail to produce the expected ROI due to the following reasons:

  • Lack of organizational change to support agile teams
  • Failure to align necessary resources and skill sets
  • Inadequate coaching or training
  • Failure to clearly define goals and objectives
  • Failure to put in place a way to proactively measure progress
  • Failure to address organizational impediments

 

To avoid these issues, AT will work with your senior management team to:

  • Assemble an objective overview of your current state and capabilities
  • Define a strategic plan with clearly defined goals and measurable success criteria
  • Develop an implementation strategy

Strategic Consulting

Implementing agile on a few teams is easily achievable; but scaling agile to the program level or for an entire organization requires a clear vision and plan as to how exactly this will be done and what changes need to be made in order to build an environment to support these teams. Failure in this regard is not an option as the teams will quickly be pushed back into traditional process compliance and will quickly erode any gains in productivity and quality you have made. Our consultants are not only experts at scaling agile but also in organizational change management.
