They’ve done some training, hired a few scrum masters and a coach and read the books. But but but…. the promised speed to value hasn’t materialised, the teams seem confused and uncoordinated and everyone has wonderful new titles but are working in the same old ways… At P2 Consulting we see this all too often and have christened this stage of the ‘failing—scaling’ model the ‘Agile in Name Only’ stage and it’s a transformation killer. Confusion reigns, enthusiasm wains and the nay-sayers start to whisper that this scaled Agile thing is all smoke and mirrors and shouldn’t we just go back to the way things were.
P2 Consulting was started by a group of award winning consultants who recognised the opportunity to build a global consultancy firm that had clients’ needs at its heart. We understand the challenges clients face – the pace of globalisation, technology change and increasing regulation – and the pressure they are under to respond to these changes rapidly and efficiently.
