The rapid pace of our changing world has forced every business to become a technology company. Technology drives our business systems and shapes how we interact with our Clients. The speed with which your organization develops software and new capabilities can put you ahead of or behind your competitors. Rapid innovation and adapting quickly to market changes and opportunities will keep you a step ahead of your competitors by accelerating value delivery to your customers.
Agile frameworks have greatly increased success rates in software development, improved quality, quickened speed to market, and boosted the motivation and productivity of technology teams. These Agile frameworks are driven by adopting these new principles and the resulting skills and practices. Trexin is beginning to see these techniques being adopted across a broad range of industries and functions as an alternative to traditional management processes.
Trexin can partner with your organization’s key stakeholders to assess your organization’s current delivery ecosystem helping you identify challenges and opportunities which new or improved Agile frameworks may address. The graphic below shows our views on what drives lasting benefits from adopting Agile frameworks.  

Agile Transformation

Help section

Help me understand Agile fundamentals and how they amplify business results

Adopting and gaining value from Agile frameworks has not always gone smoothly. Serious impediments exist such as… do teams and leaders know and use the techniques wisely? Or do the techniques become “excuse barriers” to providing meaningful insight and progress? Do leaders and staff really understand, and believe in Agile principles that underlie their benefits and lasting success? Have they gone through training and taken time to understand the frameworks and their inherent value add?

Without a substantial coalition of like-minded stakeholders, Agile techniques will most often be relegated to another “new” idea with promise but few results. When leaders continue to manage in traditional ways, that often-run counter to Agile principles and practices, the organization can undermine the effectiveness of Agile teams in units that report to them.

Trexin can partner with you to help with these issues. We believe in a holistic and systematic approach, allowing Agile techniques to thrive when an organization commits to:

  • Instilling beliefs and aligning behaviors with Agile principles and frameworks.
  • Training and supporting ongoing development of team and leaders in Agile skills.
  • A willingness to adopt a shared risk-taking mindset.
  • Designing Agile frameworks into management systems and governance processes.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Agile Coaching
  • Agile
  • Program Execution
  • Agile Assessment

Help me build and implement a tailored strategy to adopt Agile

While Agile project transformation allows organizations to move fast and release often, implementing agile solutions takes time, effort and may not happen quickly. Trexin Advisors will partner with you and design a plan to build and rollout an Agile framework without disrupting your current operations.

We start by creating a deep, fact-based understanding of your current operations, methods, and beliefs. Only then, can we assess which Agile framework is right for your unique organization. Next, we will work with your leadership team to create the right direction, support and empowerment. Then, working with your teams, we will help you establish, train, and execute your Agile goals.

Trexin will work alongside your teams to help learn how to implement processes that ensure Agile “Planning and Execution” are effectively communicated and adopted in environments where priorities often need to change quickly. By learning and embracing the core principles of Agile, you can create a dynamic product management capability that can respond to and support your organization’s ever-growing potential.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Program Execution
  • Agile
  • Roadmaps
  • Strategy

Help me prepare our company culture to embrace the core values of Agile 

Strategic choices, beliefs, and behaviors are central influences to any corporate culture. The more aligned these are, the more powerful the culture. Evolving your culture to embrace the core principles of Agile is difficult. Trexin can partner with you to remove blockers and empower your teams to function independently. We work with you to prepare your organization for change and focus on delivering value while improving your velocity of change.

Together, we will empower your teams to build quality products. Improving the effectiveness of your team requires organizational and cultural change that can only be achieved through engaged, intentional, and effective leadership.

Several keys to success include:

  • Prepare for and reinforce your organizational culture for change
  • Focus on delivering value while improving your velocity of change
  • Create the ability to build products independently across teams

Areas of Expertise:

  • Program Execution
  • Agile
  • Change Management

Help me identify, create, and staff strategic Agile roles

Implementing Agile frameworks will often create new positions and will require new roles. These are not always one and the same. Focus on ensuring the right roles are being developed and performed is vital before adding or changing your staffing levels and positions. Trexin can assist you in developing the right people tactics to support new principles and resulting skills and practices.

The stage of your Agile journey will dictate which roles are most critical to drive progress and sustain momentum.

Early progress and scaling requires people who can bridge gaps, encourage, mentor, and teach. Look for roles such as:

  • Agile ambassadors and boundary spanners
  • Agile program champions and coaches
  • Chief architects and product owners

As your organization matures and scales new core Agile roles to sustain Agile, ceremony techniques will come into prominence. Look for roles such as:

  • Product (and portfolio) managers
  • Release engineers and program managers
  • DevOps roles
  • Scrum masters and project managers
  • Community of practice lead(s)

Areas of Expertise:

  • Agile Assessment
  • Agile
  • Program Execution
  • Agile Roles
  • Scrum Master
  • RTE
  • Product Owner
  • Product Manager
