AGILE LEADERSHIP PEER MENTORING PROGRAM
The ‘Agile management revolution’ is alive and well, and while we offer a large number of classes teaching and mentoring on Agile, one critical element is lacking. Unfortunately, without this element, it is likely your investment in training will not be able to bear much fruit. What is the missing element? An Agile-Mindset within the organization as a whole.
It’s one thing to teach an Agile or Scrum skill – it’s something completely different to create an environment where the culture of the organization embraces that skill as a foundational element of daily activity.
This innovative ‘Peer’ program bridges that gap, and is essential to any successful agile transformation.
PRODUCT OWNER PEER MENTORING PROGRAM
All Product Owners know 'innovation’ is not something relegated to the Innovation Department. Innovation is at the heart of the Product Owner and Developer agile roles. For an organization to thrive, particularly now, it needs to have a company-wide ‘Innovation Culture’.
It is vital for everyone from the CEO, to the mid-level manager, to the cleaner, to understand what innovation truly means, how to become an effective part of an innovation cycle, and how to apply innovative thinking on a real-time basis.
It is also vital to create an environment where the culture of the organization has been transformed to embrace innovation as a foundational element of daily activity.
This innovative ‘Peer’ program bridges that gap, and a great place to start with Product Owners and Scrum Developers.
AGILE COACH AND SCRUM MASTER PEER MENTORING PROGRAM
What is it worth when your team of ten Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters produces like twenty? Or forty? In this program Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters acquire ten simple yet powerful collaboration ceremonies to dramatically increase their effectiveness as coaches. Of course, they also do a workplace improvement project with a positive and measurable ROI.
In our experience most coaching teams build awesome Agile delivery teams, but never develop the full potential of their own coaching team. Agile coaching teams who learn collaborative-dynamics skills and collaboration ceremonies discover even they can become a highly functional team.

Building Backlogs, Visions, Value Streams, Personas, and Story Maps Together

VALUE CYCLE CONSULTING
Successful businesses continually refine and improve how they deliver value. The Value Cycle is a proven way to create effective value driven outcomes for any line of work, enabling businesses to execute a consistent and repeatable continuous improvement process at all levels of the organization.
The Value Cycle works by focusing on four simple steps that can be completed in as few as two to three hours; with the right people in the room and the good facilitation the pieces fall together as each step supports the next.
The Value Cycle is an iterative approach to investigation and delivery. Each activity elaborates on previous activities and invites continued refinement of previous work.
