Transformation Strategy Consulting
Lean & Agile Rollout at Enterprise Scale
Change is hard. Yet the reasons for transformation to modern practice have never been more important. Faced with Digital Disruption, enterprises must improve their capability to deliver software within an environment of increasing complexity, both in the approaches to software delivery and the technologies that realize today's solutions. Whether that complexity is confronted by self-organizing teams who must sort through marketing rhetoric to identify their best approach for execution, or from technology churn that materially affects outcomes, we know that teams continue to struggle today no differently than in the past. Even with the new management science manifested in today's Lean and Agile approaches, we know that the historical project failure rates continue to be flat. Moreover, the trend in strategic change management continues to exhibit a 70% historical failure rate, of which software capability improvement is not immune. It is not uncommon to hear about "their third Agile transformation" among companies that were once the poster children that fueled the Agile movement.

Our strategic transformation services successfully realize change towards modern practice at enterprise scale. Through Decision-centric Capability Improvement (DCCI), our strategy realizes risk mitigation for decisions related to people, process and technology at the scale of the enterprise.
