Agile Organisational Development

Transform your Organisation into the Future

Digitisation is currently changing the business models and business processes of almost every company. VUCA – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity – is a popular way of expressing this development. Know-how and technologies play an important role, as they have always done, but the key success factors today are adaptability and speed.  

Conventional organisational structures are usually too slow and inflexible for this development. In addition, young, technology-oriented employees expect a culture in which they can develop freely. As a result, many IT organisations today work with agile methods such as Scrum, Kanban or Design Thinking. Methods alone do not make an agile organisation, however. Only the interaction of structure, processes, management models, technology and an agile mindset enable the agile transformation of your company. Even if the focus of this development is today on IT organisations, over the medium term, it will change your entire company and the way that your employees work. That is why we combine technology and organisational development in all of our projects.  

We support your transformation projects with specially trained consultants who shape this cultural change in the company with the necessary tact.  In this way, we ensure that your organisation’s digital business models and business processes are also actively supported by your organisation.  

Agile assessment
Using our agile assessment, we work together to determine and analyse the agility level of your IT organisation. To do this, we make use of existing data sources, such as previous employee surveys, review selected projects and carry out interviews with employees both within and outside of your IT organisation. We consider structures, processes, management models, technology and the culture of your IT organisation in equal measure, and jointly draw up a map of potential fields of action for your further transformation into an agile IT organisation.

Agile transformation
The agile transformation of your IT organisation is a continuous process which often lasts several years. A large, thoroughly planned project is not the right approach for this process. We recommend that you work through the fields of action from the assessment step-by-step using an agile approach. As you work on each issue, you will see your IT organisation from a new perspective. In this way, you can flexibly re-prioritise your fields of action and optimally adjust to the needs of your IT organisation that have changed as a result of the transformation.
We support this transformation process with a variety of services depending on the field of action. At this point, we do not see ourselves as project leaders or consultants, but rather as active sparring partners in your transformation process. We moderate and support your transformation teams. We help you with the development and implementation of appropriate leadership and collaboration models. We are sparring partners for your management and help you to actively shape the change process. We also design awareness campaigns on issues including: Why do we need an agile organisation? In this way, you can make optimal and flexible use of our experience in the agile organisational development of your IT organisation.
Organisational status definition
In the past, IT projects focused primarily on technical migration, whereas today, almost every IT project is characterised to equal degrees by technical and organisational change. With the current development of more flexible and agile working environments, working models and the understanding of the role of each employee are changing. Traditional training and roll-out measures only partially fulfil the associated requirements.
We support your transformation projects from the very start at the technical and organisational levels. In the organisational status definition, we analyse impending changes in your organisation, and plan the necessary activities. In this way, you can ensure that your technological and organisational transformation is integrated, and actively supported by your employees.

Organisational transformation
The rapid developments in modern technologies are changing our working world to the same extent. A high degree of automation, agile forms of work, flat hierarchies, self-organised teams and a different, coaching-oriented understanding of leadership are just a few examples of this phenomenon. Classical training models for projects are no longer enough to successfully shape this change. You can only achieve employee acceptance through the active, integrated design of structures, processes, management models, technology and culture.
We support your transformation projects with specially trained consultants, offering a combination of proven experience in the information technology and organisational development fields. We help you to develop your future corporate structure and the associated work and management models. As a sparring partner for your management, we actively help shape your change process – as consultants, moderators or sparring partners. This integrated approach to technology and organisation ensures long-term employee acceptance of your transformation process.
