There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.

Peter F. Drucker - Management Writer (1909 - 2005)

Companies typically engage me when a new executive or senior manager comes in, and they realize that their teams aren’t as productive as they could be.  I help by working across the value stream to:

  • Increase alignment
  • Increase collaborative teamwork
  • To achieve ‘enterprise agility’

By employing lean management techniques (and not just lean ‘waste-reduction/process improvements’), my clients become more effective in delivering better solutions to market, faster.

Companies I can help tend to be software or light manufacturing firms in the Puget Sound Region.  They are profitable, know where they are going, and have between 50 and 150 people in either the business unit I am working with, or in the whole organization, if its is a smaller firm.  I work with teams and executive leadership in equal measure.

75% of all Agile Transformations fail

Seventy-five percent of all Agile transformations don’t achieve their promised value.
It doesn’t have to be that way.

Are you losing the Go-to-Market race?

Were you promised that simply by working in two-week iterations and automating testing and deployment, you will be able to get to market faster?

Are your teams busy, but nothing is getting done?

Were you promised that by using Agile techniques your development teams will be more productive?

Is your development team missing its deadlines?

Were you promised that cost and schedule can be predicted, but you must sacrifice scope?

Stakeholders

Executives

Executives typically crave predictability. Corporate budgets, sales projections, and strategic planning require anticipating costs and schedules. I help with GOVERNANCE by optimizing your decision-making and planning processes.

Product Managers

Product managers need to make the most effective use of their precious resources, where effectiveness is measured by the ability to solve urgent, pervasive, and valuable market problems. I help with SERIAL DELIVERY OF VALUE through leveraging time boxes and feedback loops

Knowledgeable, skilled people working in teams are the greatest resources you have. They should be highly engaged and productive. I help with ensuring that they are effectively SELF-ORGANIZING by leveraging teamwork and Holacratic principles.

I like to tell my clients that “I invented Agile, and you can too”.  What I mean by this is that every organization must uncover the meaning of agility for themselves.  Only then can you develop processes and practices through the application of Lean and Agile principles, .  That is exactly how Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, LeSS all came about, and that is how you too can “invent Agile” to suit the unique needs of your oganization.
