Agile business transformation

Rethinking corporate structures and successfully facing the dynamic future

Do you want to make your company more agile in order to remain future-oriented and successful? Is your company facing the challenges of digitalisation and generational change? Do you need teams and processes that are as autonomous and independent of each other as possible in order to be able to react quickly to customer demands and market changes? Do your organisation and your employees demand new leadership behaviour in order to remain competitive and efficient?

When conventional leadership methods and management concepts no longer achieve the desired results, everything speaks for an agile business transformation. For many years, we have successfully accompanied organisations through restructuring and the introduction of new roles.

Agile organisations: adaptive, flexible and one step ahead of the competition

Agility is an inner attitude, not a method. Agile working has been widespread for many years, especially in the field of software development. Proven effects of this way of working are the improvement of quality and efficiency as well as more satisfied employees.

Scrum and Kanban have become a modern methodological standard for teamwork. The resulting agile roles and practices have become an indispensable part of modern process organisation. In the meantime, however, development organisations in particular are going one step further and also aligning their organisational structure with agile principles. The agile teams form the structure of the organisational structure. Scrum roles are being introduced as leadership roles, while traditional leadership roles such as team leader and department head are losing importance.

A development towards such a corporate culture naturally triggers a cultural change in the organisation, which fuels fears and uncertainties. That is why this cultural change needs the right questions and sound guidance. Because it is not just about perfect mastery of agile methods, but in particular great experience with restructuring organisations is required here, such as

  • Coaching the people involved and the associated new role models
  • Structuring and accompanying organisational change through job descriptions, calls for tenders, integration of employee representatives or (re)definition of salary and career models.

Why you should choose agile business transformation?

If your market environment is increasingly characterised by complexity, inconsistencies, unpredictable fluctuations and uncertainties, an agile transformation is crucial in order to

  • be prepared for the future,
  • stay relevant and efficient, and continuously improve,
  • with a team of committed and motivated people.

Get an idea of the benefits of an agile organisation as opposed to a classic organisation with rigid hierarchies:

Classic organisation

  • Unambiguity of authority through demarcation of tasks, competences and areas of responsibility with direct official channels
  • Long information and instruction paths, resulting in long decision-making processes, among other things
  • Overburdening of managers due to information and decision-making channels
  • Dependencies between superiors and employees
  • Stable process or project orientation
Agile Organisation

  • Change in the thinking and behaviour of managers towards a culture of trust in which mistakes are part of the learning process.
  • More personal responsibility for employees
  • Transparency and open communication between teams
  • Targeted use of talents and ideas as well as stronger self-organisation of the teams
  • Permanent evaluation and adaptation of processes and structures with regard to their efficiency in order to increase economic success.

Coaching instead of consulting

Wir setzen auf das Prinzip der Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe und möchten größtmögliche Wirkung durch möglichst gezielte Coaching-Einsätze erreichen. Unser Ziel ist es, Sie als Kunde schnell zu befähigen, die notwendigen Veränderungen in Ihrer Organisation ohne Consultants weiterzuentwickeln. Wir sehen uns als Coaches auf Zeit. An Ihrer Seite unterstützen wir Sie mit unserem methodischen Wissen und unseren jahrelangen, praktischen Erfahrungen.

Was müssen Sie tun?

Für den Erfolg der agilen Transformation großer und mittelgroßer Unternehmen sind die Unternehmenskultur und die damit verbundenen Menschen in Führungs- und Fachverantwortung ein kritischer Erfolgsfaktor. Eine Kultur, die dynamische Veränderungen willkommen heißt, entsteht durch eine aufgeschlossene innere Haltung und erfordert die Bereitschaft an sich zu arbeiten. Und das gerade an den Stellen, an denen es am meisten schmerzt.

Oft sind Unternehmen davon überzeugt, bereits agil zu arbeiten. Jedoch sind die agilen Werte und Prinzipien in der Kultur der Organisation noch in keiner Weise angekommen. Und hier liegt unsere Stärke. Wir begleiten Sie auf Ihrem Weg zum agilen Unternehmen.

Wie gehen wir vor?

Wir analysieren Ihre spezifischen Stärken und Schwächen mithilfe unserer Werkzeuge und unserer Erfahrung, beraten mit Ihnen die Potenziale und Risiken einer agilen Transformation und entwickeln eine passgenaue Transitions-Strategie und -Roadmap.

Sind Sie bereit Ihre klassische Unternehmensstruktur hinter sich zu lassen, eine neue agile Denkweise anzunehmen und Ihr Unternehmen auf die zukünftigen Herausforderungen eines sich ständig verändernden Marktes vorzubereiten?
