Agile teams are a good start, but not enough. To maximize the innovation and creativity enabled through decentralized control, you need to give the teams alignment and clarity. We help you bridge the gap between strategy and execution, reaching alignment that maximizes the value created by your organization.

Create alignment and engagement around measurable goals with Objectives and Key Results

OKR (Objectives and Key Results) is a goal system pioneered by Intel and used by Google, Spotify, Telenor, and many others. It is a simple tool to create alignment and engagement around measurable goals that works well with agile teams. OKRs are frequently set, reviewed, and re-evaluated, which engage each team’s perspective and creativity.

Re-engineer your planning and funding practices to align more closely with desired business outcomes through Lean Portfolio Management

Traditional approaches to portfolio management were not designed for a global economy or the impact of digital disruption. Lean Portfolio Management applies Lean and systems thinking approaches to strategy, budgets and investment funding, Agile portfolio operations, and governance to align strategy and execution.

Help your organisation create clear strategic objectives, whilst being flexible enough to adapt to unpredictable events, with Mission Aligned Strategy/Process

Using the 5 Question Mission Alignment Process (5MAP), developed by Stephen Bungay (author of Art of Action), will help you create strategy briefings and structured thinking that translates top management’s aspirations into concrete action on the ground.
