TURN YOUR AGILITY ANALYSIS INTO REAL CHANGE

1. TRACK YOUR AGILE FLUENCY
Diana Larsen and James Shore developed the Agile Fluency Project. The Agile Fluency Project was created “with the goal that every team should work at the level of fluency that best fits their business’ needs.”

Even brands known for being cutting-edge and hyper agile, such as Amazon, Google, Salesforce and Tesla have traditional elements and still use at least some traditional systems.

Implementing Agile is about finding what works for your organization.

2. GAMIFY YOUR AGILE IMPROVEMENTS
The goal with most Agile tools is to make the concept seem less intimidating and more approachable. Agility Scales with their Mind Settlers platform have managed to gamify the Agile workplace. Teams can follow adventures and take actions to learn about their processes or they can solve problems together.

3. USE THE TOP METRICS AVAILABLE
If you are ready to dive into the metrics of Agile evaluation, look no further than Leon Tranter’s ultimate guide. Tranter starts by defining the principles of agile metrics and how you should use them, and then explains each metric, how it is used, and what it is not — which is just as important as what it is for many organizations.

Additionally, the team at SeaLights have a guide with 10 metrics that you can use to test agility within your teams. They review concepts including cycle time, failed deployments and age velocity, which you can test within your organization.

4. REVIEW YOUR SCRUM PERFORMANCE
Agile and Lean coach Henrik Kniberg has created a scrum checklist which is available in several languages.

It is not a set of hard rules, but it is meant to serve as a guide for agile teams to review their process. If part of the checklist does not work for a team, then it is okay to move forward without it or revisit that step later.

5. DEVELOP YOUR OWN MEASUREMENT PROCESS
You do not necessarily need to use pre-packaged evaluation process to track your agility. With a little creativity, you can build your own measurement process.

Professional Scrum Trainer and Scrum Master, Stephanie Ockerman shares insights into how she looks at Agile team performance and tries to find room for improvement. In her five-step guide, she covers topics such as moving beyond low-hanging fruit to address real issues and constantly inspecting and adapting processes to make them better.

TURN YOUR AGILITY ANALYSIS INTO REAL CHANGE
Once you are clearly able to evaluate the agility of your organization, you can begin to implement lasting changes that improve how the teams in your organization work together.

Whether your teams have a fear of change or just lack knowledge and understanding to be more Agile, you can use your analysis to implement better Agile processes and prepare your company for whatever lies ahead in the future.
