In Lean Agile transformation journey people and organisation faced three common issues:

  • Struggling in Adopting Agile practices without embracing the values and principles
  • Identifying the level of Agility that is required
  • Lack of a clear model for continuous transformation

Doing Agile can be achieved overnight, but being Agile is a longer journey. Without the right mindset, it can be incredibly difficult to deal with complex issues in empirical environments and uncertain situations.

level of Agility that is needed for a business depends on many internal and external factors like nature of the market, level of competition, the maturity level of industry, etc. This means some organisations need to be more Agile than the others. The Transformation journey often is misleaded by having the wrong assumption of all organisations and people need to reach to the same level of Agility.

MLAMP (Mazdak lean Agile Maturity Pyramid) is the first three-dimensional Agile Maturity Assessment which helps individuals and organisations (regardless of their type and size) to

  • Identify what level of Agility is needed? (the why)
  • Transit from the Shu (Doing) level and ultimately reach to the Ri (Being) level?
  • Transform less Agile organisations and people to more Agile ones?

  • Jack Zadegan

    Jack Zadegan - Let's play a business improvement game

    45 Mins

    We are looking at solving a business problem in 100 days using an agile mindset.

    Some business problems have multiple elements beyond just systems which includes people, data, systems and process aspects. I will talk about why and how business improvement projects are changing in how they deliver projects and the trend to be more agile. I will then present a multi-faceted business problem that has all of the above 4 aspects to be resolved within 10 sprints.

    During the planning note that an iterative waterfall is not agile. In an agile project, the steps involved in system development such as analysis, design, coding and testing should all exist in each sprint of the project.

    The participants will be broken into groups of 3-5 people and will be asked to read the business problem and plan for 10 sprints. Once finished we will look at how the teams have performed and assess based on the following criteria:

    1. Is your plan realistic?

    2. To what extend have you resolved the business problem?

    3. Is your plan an agile one or just an iterative waterfall?
