Organizations that reach success do so because they share common characteristics that almost guarantee a certain level of achievement. These traits typically involve the people who run the organization, the business plan they follow, the efficiency level of the process and how well they interact with their customer base.
We at Temenos+Agility apply proven methods, models, tools and approaches to help your organization be more successful and attain agility in the transformation journey.
Almost every enterprise transformation team overstates the degree to which they can control negative effects of change and underestimates the time, collaborative energy and money it would take to prepare for the change.

Partnering for Transformation, Partnering for Success
I met Siraj a few years ago when he joined our effort to transform Capital One's Digital organization into a lean mean Agile machine. We had a big change ahead of us, and I know that we would not be as successful implementing Agile — and scaling it — without his leadership.
Working with Temenos+Agility is like a great workout with an amazing Trusted Advisor; he can pull the best out of you when you don't think is possible. And when you look back, you're feeling leaps and bounds ahead of than when you started.
Susan Gibson was the Client Principal at a project where I was part of an Agile enablement team, she and I worked closely together as our small team (5-8 people) undertook the Agile transformation of several client delivery teams.Susan is a highly capable leader and this became clear to me when she assumed her role on our team. Prior to her taking charge, we had had several challenges due to unusually high attrition on both the ThoughtWorks' and client's side. Her steady hand and confidence in her peers allowed us to overcome staffing changes and maintain the strong 1-1 relationships that are vital to a successful Agile transformation effort.
Susan's leadership style is subtle yet very effective. Her words are delivered calmly, with precision and authority. I found this to be the perfect foil to stormy challenges. She commands great respect from her peers. Because of her soft-spoken style, people hang on her every word in meetings and even casual conversations; and are more likely to follow her advice than that of some bombastic manager.
I was very fortunate to have Susan as the Client Principal of my team. I would love to work with her again, whenever the opportunity presents itself.
My professional journey with Siraj focused on transforming Capital One to an Agile mindset and approach to increase the speed and quality of delivering business capabilities to our customers. Siraj was very effective at developing trusting relationships at all levels, which was necessary to create the amount of change needed. He has deep expertise in many Agile areas (Lean, Scrum, XP, etc), and also in Change Management.
Siraj is profoundly grounded in his mission and purpose for life, and uses that to remain centered and focused. His ability to observe and interpret other people’s motives, strengths, and weaknesses is striking. Coaching people, teams, and leaders to dramatically improve is a differentiating skill he has developed and very graciously offers to so many people around him.
Susan led a team of consultants in implementing Agile techniques in our IT group at Con-way. She is extremely knowledgeable about Agile and how to make it effective in organizations. Thanks to Susan, we have been able to deliver superior software at a very rapid rate.
Siraj has insight into life and humanity that transcends and vastly enriches his contribution to any project. His coaching and leadership at Winn-Dixie was of the highest quality and tremendously valuable. His lasting influence and wisdom will leave any management team with the life skills to be more effective and focused.
Susan was Client Principal for 3 large accounts at the time I was Executive Sponsor for those accounts. Susan had a keen understanding of the issues at hand and never escalated a problem without also having a potential solution in mind. She is excellent at understanding a situation and environment and knowing not only what the issues are, but having a knack for knowing how to make things better. She is a pleasure to work with - very professional and always focused on doing the right thing for her customer and her teammates.
I heartily recommend Susan and hope I have the pleasure of working with her again.
This one is short and sweet: If you are ready for your organization to go Agile, and you want it to happen fast, then Siraj will make it happen, guaranteed.
Siraj is a change agent in the truest sense of the word. In eleven months, he was able to help us transform the way projects are done using Agile principles. But his real talent is the "team doctor". Put him in any team situation, especially dysfunctional teams and he will turn the situation around in short order. It was a real pleasure to work with him.
Siraj was a valuable asset to our company while he was here working on our IT departments. He always had a way of making everyone talk and open up - his personality is his greatest trait and people liked working with him. He was a great business partner that helped many groups.
