“Lean Agile is about finding the most efficient way to deliver the most essential thing. Theories are easy to learn but real change is made by people.”
– Anna Virolainen, Service Area Lead

Lean Agile

Lean Agile transformation touches the whole organization. However, it is important to be able to drive change in small steps – through experiments and feedback cycles. It is the people in the organization that make transformation happen, it cannot be entirely planned. Lean Agile is a collection of theories and principles, which are easy to teach and learn, but only practice will tell what works and what does not. In fact, in driving change it is important to be bold and alert enough to be able to see if the direction is right.

Our experts teach the organization how to master the basic skills, initiate the changes and roll out the new modes of operation. Our Lean Agile development services cover the following, for example:

  • Planning and leading Lean Agile change programs
  • Lean Agile maturity assessment
  • Portfolio management
  • Value stream analysis
  • Working in the Product Owner, Feature Owner, Epic Owner, Release Train Engineer and Agile Coach roles and supporting the key roles
  • Consulting the management and clarifying the target state
  • Setting up a support organization, including a coaching network, peer support communities
  • Basic skills training (Lean Agile, SAFe, Scrum, Kanban, tools) and role-specific training paths
  • Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) training and certification training
  • Lean Agile consulting

In Lean Agile assignments, our experts assume the role of coaches in our clients’ development projects, leading the teams down the road of continuous improvement. They provide assistance in starting up the delivery trains, support those in key roles, helping them to prepare an adequate amount of instructions on the practices. They facilitate planning sessions and ceremonies of different sizes, and bring forth ideas to advance the transformation. They evaluate the maturity of the different parts of the organization in the Lean Agile transformation, and propose actions. If needed, they can focus on improving and including certain areas, such as architectures, customer and user experience, working in multiple locations, transparency, multi-vendor environments and release capability.
