Having worked with dozens of organizations and hundreds of project teams our Disciplined Agile senior enterprise coaches can quickly recognize patterns within your organizations where companies in similar contexts have succeeded or failed.

In their book Disciplined Agile: An Executive's Guide, Mark and Scott describe Disciplined Agile's proven pattern for successful and sustainable transformation using the Lean Change organizational change method (OCM) approach.
Our approach follows this pattern:
Agile ideas promote the concept of self-organizing teams which means that teams are encouraged to optimize their own processes through trial and error. However, it can take years for the teams to figure things out on their own and become self-aware enough to make the right process decisions. Without adequate coaching this can be a very expensive and time consuming process that can often result in projects failing as well as your organization not meeting it agile transformation goals. Our Disciplined Agilist coaches have seen hundreds of agile projects across many industries and can quickly assess your organization and teams’ context in order to apply a proven transformation pattern strategy.
