Understand your strategic intent and define the key principles for a successful model. Design and test the model with a range of business stakeholders.
Apply the model as a contained pilot with a jointly staffed, cross-functional support and governance group. We assess what works well and where there are areas of friction and address these while in pilot.
Expand the model further in the organisation. This may be a large scale roll out, or an iterative “inspect and adapt” approach depending on the context.
Edwin was awesome. One of the most engaging trainers I have had the pleasure of being trained by. The course content was relevant and the examples used were clear and specific to the topic or theme being discussed.
This course showed me the ropes, and helped me multiple times on every stage of a project, my day-to-day accountabilities and becoming a better Product Owner. One of the things that I liked most was the use of the facilitator’s own personal real-life examples as he grew within the product. I loved how every example also explained a specific recommended tool that could aid in situations such as the use of story mapping when defining an MVP. I found the experience very resourceful, practical and fun.
Edwin Dando is truly a next-level coach – he does not simply regurgitate content but provides real-life examples to back it up. There is a real feeling of a wealth of knowledge and experience. He also adapts the course content and delivery to the experience of the participants. Although I have completed facilitation and Scrum training before, I really enjoyed training with Edwin and felt that it provided a fresh perspective on Scrum principles.
This was hands down the best course I have ever attended. I feel really cheated for having done the PSM on my own and not getting the benefits of taking this course. Really well put together and explained and the use of anecdotal learning was phenomenal.
What we’re seeing already after just a couple of sprints, is that the squads are now starting to really get their hands around the work but also how to deliver outcomes through that working process and the outcomes are looking very promising. Our cycle time seems to be moving faster, the customer focus is increasing, and we’re very excited about the potential of this for the future.
The biggest benefit Radically is brought to Aeroqual is being able to connect our high-level company strategy with our agile teams.
The support from Radically in taking agile to another level is very beneficial for us. There's a tendency to see agile as purely a productivity tool; to me, I think the greater benefit is a cultural one. Staff are much more engaged; they can see the connection between the work they do, and the envy end results with customers.
Working with Radically was easy, they came into our business, they understood quite quickly who we were, and what our challenges were. They were quite quickly able to adapt their coaching plans to match exactly what we needed.
We believed we were agile when we started this project, and things quickly fell apart when we were faced with a client or partner that was waterfall based. Basically, we really needed someone to come in, and have a look at the way we were doing it, and also help us convey to the client what we were trying to achieve.
“The pilot has proven to be extremely valuable, not only for the people involved - most of whom had never practised working like this - but also for our business in terms of increased tax credits that were achieved”
“The project backlog shows that the team has covered a lot of areas, and it gives me a lot of confidence that the team is focused on the right things.”
“In Radically, we found a versatile and values-led partner whose fresh thinking and experience in agile accelerated Vodafone’s implementation while helping us overcome challenges encountered along the way. We benefited from smart, capable consultants who really understood our business."
"Agile brings together multi-skilled teams to focus on solving a customer need. This way of working has always been in Vodafone's DNA but Radically really helped us scale it up and unlock a lot more value for our business."
