Leaving Organizations With Sustainable Agile Practices

Agile leaders build high-performing teams for your organization’s competitive advantage. Leadership engagement is fundamental to achieving Business Agility. Leaders set the values that help define the culture of a workplace, and Agile is a cultural shift. Our consultants leverage their broad industry experience to help your organization avoid the challenges associated with embracing Agility. Our leadership coaching and workshops support education and alignment, and they tie strategy to execution at all levels.

Areas of Expertise

We take a pragmatic, holistic approach, infusing Agile into each aspect of your organization as you progress on your journey.

Business Agility

In this ever-changing environment, it has become imperative for organizations to sense and respond quickly to changes in the market. Eliassen Group can help you develop your Business Agility capabilities to harness change, enter new addressable markets, and tie your strategic objectives to measurable outcomes.

Lean Portfolio Management & Budgeting

Organizations are taxed with high demand and limited capacity. Ruthless prioritization is necessary to get the right things done at the right time. Lean Portfolio Management connects strategy and budgeting to planning and execution by creating an intake process for strategic initiatives to regulate the flow of value through the organization. Our consultants will help you implement a Lean Portfolio Management system that is sized right for your organization.

Technical Practices

The foundation of Agile is built on teams of highly competent technical engineers. Rapid release cycles require technical excellence and an increased focus on automation. Our Technical Coaches are dedicated to helping you identify the gaps and strategy to up-skill and modernize your teams with technical practices to enable higher quality, less technical debt, and decreased risk.

DevOps

Given the foundation of Agile is based on teams with technical excellence, DevOps goes further to expand the team’s collective ownership, bridging the gap between Development, Security, and Operations. This allows for end-to-end responsibility of the entire product lifecycle, resulting in applications with increased scalability, reliability, and resiliency. Our Technical Coaches will help you modernize your DevOps practices to support your organization’s continuous improvement efforts.

DevOps

Scaled Agile Gold Partner

The Scaled Agile Framework® (pronounced SAFe™) was created by Dean Leffingwell and is an interactive knowledge base for implementing Agile practices at enterprise scale. The “Big Picture” graphic created by Dean highlights the individual roles, teams, activities and artifacts necessary to scale Agile from the team to program to the enterprise level. Dean has elaborated on this scaled Agile adoption practice that often takes place in companies in his books Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements for Teams Programs and the Enterprise (2011) and Scaling Software Agility: Best Practices for Large Enterprises, (2007). He often discusses SAFe in his blog as well, which can be found at scalingsoftwareagilityblog.com.
