Full Enterprise Adoption: Ways of Working

Posted by Helen Beal on Tue, Jul 23, 2019 @ 17:07 PM

I’ve been observing a pattern for quite some time now with my clients that in 2017 I referred to as BizIT - that is, these conversations about Ways of Working* have been seeping out of the technology teams and into ‘the business’.

  • Small, dedicated, autonomous, cross-functional, multi-functional teams
  • Long lived product centric thinking, unlearning project centric habits
  • Empowerment, participation and peer-review
  • Breaking dependencies, impediment removal and streamlining processes

  • Focus on customer delight and the delivery of value outcomes
  • Increasing throughput and stability as equal forces
