From Agile Coach to Transformation Leader – We Can Do Both

Regardless of the specific consulting area, TCGen’s approach to agile transformation (or Scaled Agile) typically begins with a thorough assessment of your organization’s needs and follows it with focused training for team members and their managers:

  1. We first highlight the pain points & business needs (usually product mindset, product definition, delays & missing financial/impact goals). 
  2. Then we agree on goals and KPIs and prioritize to implement agile capabilities. 
  3. We then identify a small number of Agile practices that we will seek to embed in the culture.
  4. Work with you to achieve this transformation via best practices in change management.
  5. When an agile practice is established and socialized, and agile teams are in place, we embed further practices or help you create a well structured Agile organization.

Because we want to leave you with a new capability that employees will now have, we typically pair up with a senior level individual contributor (note this is not a full-time assignment, but it’s a high priority). Our approach to program management will show you how to implement agile projects that use, where required, Sprints, user stories, kanban and managing the backlog, while giving you the agile coaching to embed these practices throughout your company.
