Agile Academy

Your company as a clockwork

A company can be compared to a clockwork. In order for value to be generated, several cogwheels must mesh perfectly. In your company, these are your teams, which contribute along the value chain in order to generate value for your customers together in the end.

In practice, agile methods are usually applied in teams. This corresponds to the clockwork that individual cogwheels are correctly positioned. This does not result in the desired success. Only when the cogs fit together in the distance and in the ratio of their teeth, a reliable clockwork is created. In the same way, your teams must work in harmony with each other. Value is not created in local optimization, but rather in optimizing the way your teams work together.

We support you in thinking in a larger context and in redefining what is feasible for you.

We do not see ourselves as consultants who change your company with standard solutions and blueprints. We give you the tools you need to optimize your clockwork personally and individually. Take the opportunity today and inquire about our portfolio.

Services

Successful change doesn’t happen through one brilliant big move. Rather, success is ensured by the continuity of many small steps whose results are measurable. For sustainable change to take place, we act according to Shu Ha Ri – a concept of Asian martial arts.

Initial meeting

In the free initial meeting, we discuss the current situation and find a suitable support concept.

Quick Scan – Quick Help

We look together at problems in the local context and seek out proven practices and solutions. A team should gain the time needed for continuous development.

Training and Workshop

The first stage provides theoretical know-how and practical experience. A team can learn best and good practices here and implement them independently with rules for the respective situation.

The trainings are individually adaptable, or individual questions are answered at any time during the training.
addressed at any time.

SHU

Shu (abide, defend, follow) aims to lay a secure foundation for further development. This involves copying and following known and proven practices and patterns.

Individual Coaching

The second stage deliberately breaks down the rules from the first stage. Through conscious inspection and adaptation, methods and practices are adapted and combined in a solution-oriented way.

A team learns in the coaching sessions to what extent practices can be modified for its situation in order to create an optimal working environment.

HA

At Ha (tear, break through) first patterns are broken. One learns which rules may be broken and adapted when by understanding the principles and theories behind them.

Coach the Coach

If a team develops its own methods and practices independently, it has reached the final stage.

Here we see ourselves as partners who give the team coaches security in their decisions through challenging questions and mentoring.

RI

With Ri (to depart, to separate) one achieves mastery and develops one’s own practices and principles evolutionarily and creatively.

Workshops

We offer our workshops in a series. As a beginner in agile, it is recommended to attend them in the given order. However, direct participation in any workshop is also welcome.

Theory and practice are taught in the individual workshops. In addition, we also do not commit to showing only one agile method. Thus, in the SCRUM workshop also Kanban practices and vice versa occur.

The workshops take place every six months in Hagenberg and are advertised here. In addition, there is the possibility that we hold the workshops in-house at your company. In this case, we can also adapt the topics to your individual wishes.

Workshop: Introduction to agile project management

In this one-day workshop you will learn the basics of agile project management. We will illuminate with you how to switch from classic ways of working (e.g. waterfall, V-model, …) to agile methods. With examples from practice, our experienced agile coach will explain dos and don’ts with you and go into common frameworks like Scrum and Kanban. The main focus is on understanding agile principles and what they mean for practice.

The workshop is aimed at software developers and project managers as well as team and department managers who want to know where the added value of agile methods lies and where they can be optimally applied. The workshop is led by one of our certified and experienced coaches.

Since experience has shown that additional questions arise during the first days after the workshop, a one-hour online session will be scheduled during the workshop in which questions will be answered once again.
