“Before working with Agile Velocity we never finished a sprint. We are now completing sprints consistently and pulling in additional work.”
“We accelerated through our transition with Agile Velocity’s help. The Path to Agility was crucial to our journey because it focused on outcomes, strengthened our capabilities, and became an integral part of our improvement mindset.”
“[The best part about our transformation] once we got out of the bottom of the change curve, the energy fundamentally changed. There’s something about having things on the wall, having standups, and operating differently that they were able to take ownership in a way they never had the context to do well before. It was exciting and felt good to be around.”
“Our culture has changed significantly. We are a good place to work. We were voted one of the best places to work in Texas. But within IT, we were very siloed. Teams didn’t interact with each other, and we didn’t interact as much with our onsite business customers. But, now what you see is that buzz and energy. Everybody is really focused on collaboration and tackling things together.”
“I was impressed with Agile Velocity's ability to quickly come up to speed, gain trust from the Southwest Teams and begin to partner in driving our transformation. They used the Path to Agility which drove alignment on goals, necessary actions, and focus areas as well as helped us track and visualize maturity. Their coaching enabled our teams to pivot and re-prioritize work in a quick and organized manner.”
