Our Approach

At agile42 we are experts in helping organizations of all sizes and from all industires to successfully adopt agile methods. Depending on your needs we can guide and support your company through an Agile Transition as well as support your teams in using Scrum, Kanban or Lean. We introduce proven practices and, more importantly, we help your teams understand the principles behind the practices. Instead of presenting you with a predefined blueprint, we help you in setting up your own way of working Agile. We enable you to find your solution and optimize your processes through retrospection and continuous improvement.

Our approach is unique: We make your Agile Transition long-lasting and sustainable.

Local/Small Business or Enterprise?

With a full range of agile42 coaching tools and training we are able to partner with customers of all sizes, helping not only their transition towards Agile, but also in the overall growth of their company. Since different companies and teams have different needs when transitioning to Agile, we work closely with these companies to define their needs and structure our coaching accordingly. We have successfully coached and trained all types of companies - from large multinational organizations like Siemens and Ericsson to medium size companies like Ableton and Chip as well as new startups like Babbel, Juwelo or eBuddy. See our References section to learn more.

Agile Principles

Our approach is firmly based on the Agile Principles. We are not dogmatic in our approach. Instead we use those agile tools and methodologies which are most beneficial to our clients in their particular situation. We believe that Agile is the best way to achieve the desired goal of making organizations more predictable and flexible in their approach to work. We use the whole range of agile methodologies as opposed to a single one-size-fits-all method. Our unique practices and tools allow us to scale your transition in the best way for your organization.

How to Make a Successful Agile Transition

To guide your agile transition, we use our Enterprise Transition Framework™ (ETF), which is based on an end-to-approach and a proven set of coaching tools and training modules. The Enterprise Transition Framework has been developed over the years on successful projects with companies of different sizes and sectors. Our experienced Agile Coaches will help your company understand the impact of the change and track the progress of that change as you move towards your defined business goals. To enable a long-lasting and sustainable transition, your organization will need to develop internal coaching capabilities. To this end we have developed the Team Coaching Framework which accelerate your coaches’ learning and help your organization to scale Agile effectively from the bottom-up as well as top-down.

Sustainable Quality and Continous Improvement

You can't buy Agile. Moving to an Agile way of working requires a shift in mindset and practices on many levels. People need to communicate differently; collaboration between teams will change; and managers will have to become Agile leaders. Our focus is on the business success of our customers, our coaches have seen and supported many companies in becoming Agile and can quickly recognize gaps in the system, communication failures and technologies that might be posing problems.
