Essentially, you manage your business on three Agile levels:
Products & services, and
The way you organize each of these levels is key to the success of your company’s products & services as a whole. Here you should keep a close eye on your growth teams, because they’re your greatest source of ideas and info in general.
Delivery and discovery teams
Ordinary companies have gotten used to teams made up of nothing but assembly-line workers, with the top brass handing down orders to them. This makes the companies miss out on a whole strata of ideas, hypotheses, and potential experiments.
When you split up the production flow into delivery and discovery, the focus shifts dramatically: you keep growing your products & services, whether you end up selling them or just use them internally.
How these teams work
Essentially, they continuously create new growth areas, come up with ideas for experiments, estimate their benefits, and improve their products & services.
A perfect match
For large enterprises
Large businesses need constant growth, so, these teams become indispensable to every telecom, banking, or manufacturing business.
To keep up with the market, you need to focus on the clients, extend your coverage, improve the quality of your services, and do it better every year.
For product owners
Your product is the value that you bring to your clients and end users. When you build smart communication with your target audience, and proper business processes that support your steady growth, you’ve won half the battle already.
For team leaders
Whether you deliver a product or a service, your customers and users are your main source of feedback. When your whole team keeps their eye on the goal, everybody wins.
How it works
Every team gets a coach with the relevant expertise. They help set up your business processes, launch the whole array of required changes, and provide support and guidance to the teams and the company as a whole.
Our coaches teach you how these teams work. They run all the relevant workshops and help team members learn how to use the right tools at every key step of team launch and support.
We enter into an internal agreement between our coach and your team / company. This will make sure that everyone’s goals are aligned, and that we have concrete ways to measure progress. With this, you get a clear picture of the outcome and the steps you need to take to reach it, rather than a raw deal.
Online & offline
Choose whichever format you‘d like, and we’ll make it work. Most of our training and workshops can be done both online and offline.
Steps (suggested plan)
Run auditing and strategy sessions
We help you piece together the current picture, choose what prospective teams to launch, run a set of meetings and workshops where needed, and pick your first few teams.
Before dealing with the teams, we make sure your managers have the right skills and know all the new rules. This is a vital step because a number of your business processes and communication principles will transform, so it’s critical that your managers understand and agree with the new direction.
Train and launch teams
We train the teams and hold a joint kick-off meeting. We build our initial team relationships, compile the first version of the task set, define the progress metrics used by the team, and so on.
Guide and support
We continue to communicate with your team to assist them across all the key events that need to happen for them to succeed. Also, here is where we concentrate on developing key team roles, such as Product Owner.
Deliver reports and tools
Together with you, we choose the formats for your reports, and the tools your team will use to build them. This will provide transparency and integrity when tracking the teams’ progress.
