Change can be hard to implement.

Enterprise Readiness Assessment

We help you will a readiness assessment to determine your current agile fluency and come up with the areas of improvement.

If this is done as a part of SAFe Assessment, we effectively utilise various tools available from SAFe to come up with the assessment and recommendations. The various dimensions of assessment include

  • Leadership
  • Team Maturity
  • Way of Working assessment
  • Tools Usage
  • Review of current practices

We do the assessment using a combination of individual and group interviews, self assessment through templates, observing the current way of working and immersive workshops.

Enterprise Transformation Roadmap

We firmly believe that each organization is unique and there’s no cookie-cutter approach to the transformation. Their transformation journey depends on their past journey, current constraints and future vision.

We can help you create the transformation roadmap for your organization. The Readiness Assessment forms an input for this.

We understand that the roadmap is not cast in stone. It will consists of several learning cycles followed by a reflection upon the outcomes that will help course-correct. This is how the roadmap is structured, to add reflection points by intention.

We also help you to create, tool and enable the transformation team of change agents that will execute the transformation program.

Leadership Development, Mentoring and Coaching

Every enterprise, irrespective of where they are on their Agile transformation journey, understand the importance of effective leadership for successful transformation.

Here, the leaders, not only have to form, bless and enable a high-performing transformation team, they have to take part in the journey and lead from the front.

More likely than not, the leaders would themselves have to undergo a personal transformation to be ready to lead the enterprise successfully by learning and exhibiting new behaviors.

We can help your leaders with our immersive personal transformation program for leaders. It consists of a combination of learning methods - from book reading and analysis, to deep self reflection, multiple simulations and case studies and continuous coaching and mentoring.

Value Stream Mapping and Recommendations

To maximize the benefits from Agile adoption, the teams need to be organized around the value being delivered by the enterprise or part of the enterprise that is adopting Agile. Often, we find that organizations, due to historical reasons, have optimized their operations keeping a few internal parameters or constraint in mind.

We can help you if you are struggling with the way you are organized.

The intervention may result in a more matrixed structure where people come together to work and deliver value, or your enterprise may want to go all the way and re-organized themselves into the various value streams.

We can help you on this journey by recommending the right path for you.

Offshore Organization Assessment and Recommendation

The increase in Agile adoption across all industries has compelled global organizations to rethink how they work with distributed teams across time zones, locations and partners and vendors. Since Agile is an intrusive change for all, the solution cannot be merely redefining the way of working for the teams.

We specialise in working with organizations to help with an Agile adoption approach that is inclusive of their Captive teams, and the virtual teams from their offshore partners. In many cases, we have seen enterprises approaching us specifically to bring in their other, distributed teams into the Agile transformation that is already underway in the parent organization.

We look at the challenges holistically and suggest the right approach for the enterprises.

We also work with the offshore components of organizations to

  • Make them Agile-ready
  • Setup distributed Agile for them
  • Setup Agile in Multi-vendor scenario successfully
  • Help adopt Agile in existing development and operations team

DevOps Strategy and Roadmap

It is logical to follow the assessment with the strategy to move towards’ an organization’s DevOps vision. We can help you with this strategy and roadmap. Our recommendation will include the gaps in the current way of working, how to fulfil those gaps, and suggestions around the appropriate interventions required to reach DevOps maturity.

DevOps Assessment

A natural progression in the Enterprises’ Agile journey is to move towards DevOps adoption. We can help you assess your current DevOps maturity and recommend the way forward. This would include looking at your enterprises’ Agile fluency, automation status, Deployment sophistication, Rollback policies and processes and the team's maturity and readiness.

Product & Portfolio Management Planning

Temenos+Agility works with leaders and change agents to transform their enterprises into an Agile organization. We extensively work with CXOs, Portfolio directors and Change teams to assess the complete Portfolio (or Product, if each Product is an independent division), and arrive at the best way to organize, measure, assess and govern the portfolios.

We can help you with a complete assessment of the current functioning of the Portfolio, gap identification and creating strategies to bridge the identified gaps.

Release Planning and Facilitation

Every enterprise recognize the importance of getting the complete product team together from time to time to plan for releases. This seemingly simple activity involves a lot of pre-work, team preparation time, event planning and facilitation.

We can help you with your release planning by facilitating all the aspects across all the stakeholders from the Business teams, Architecture, PMO and the Development teams.

Inspect & Adapt Planning and Facilitation

We have witnessed several organizations who have successfully transitioned to Agile but soon get stuck at the current performance level. One of the major reasons for the plateauing of their performance is the ineffectiveness of their Inspect and Adapt phases.

We can help facilitate these phases, and also train and hand hold your leaders and teams for effective Inspect and Adapt workshops.
