Increase your current agility
Whether you are already on the Agile track or in need to implement it,

we have the knowledge and expertise to enable faster Agile adoption.
We can help define the strategy
Create an End-State Vision for the Transformation
Agile organizations are built around agile teams. Step one is to develop a plan for forming teams that can stay together over time. Not all agile teams though are Scrum teams. We'll need Program, Portfolio, and Product Owner Teams to effectively do agile at scale.
Governance is simply the way you'll coordinate work across teams, set priorities, and ensure the organization is working together to deliver against your highest priority business goals. Concepts from Lean, Kanban, Scrum, Aterrn and AgilePM are blended to develop your Agile framework.
Metrics & Tools
Metrics are essential to understand if your transformation is progressing and you are getting the business benefit you expect from your investment. Metrics must be defined, baselined, instrumented, measured, and improved to know you are on track.
We can lead the transformation
Introduce Change One Organization at a Time
An Equalminds pilot involves validating a complete vertical slice of the model. We’ll help you form teams at all levels of the enterprise, coordinate with upstream and downstream processes, and implement the governance, metrics, and tooling defined in the strategy.
Enabling people with the skills and knowledge to operate in the new model is an essential component of leading the transformation. We will deliver training tailored to the job functions and processes within each team and conduct hands-on workshops to reinforce practices.
We believe that training alone is insufficient to make change stick. We recommend several sprints of coaching per team as well as help decomposing the backlog, preparing for release planning, and gathering metrics while you're gaining proficiency in the new model.
We will prepare you to go alone
Consultants Won't Be There Forever. Get Ready To Sustain the Change.
Equalminds has the knowledge for assessing the ability of the team to execute without outside assistance. Our model is not focused on the presence of roles, processes, and ceremonies but on the ability to consistently demonstrate competency over time.
Throughout the engagement, our coaching strategy is tailored to the individual needs of each team, and focused on reinforcing the competencies that are most at risk. Progress is communicated to the transformation steering committee on a regular cadence.
Depending on the size and scope of the enterprise, it may be necessary to develop artifacts that support and reinforce the transformation. These may include job aids or templates, knowledge base articles, and even computer based training
