Many Agile transformations start with high expectations and yet surprisingly few deliver long-lasting results. Clients trust Agile Velocity because we offer a simple yet powerful approach to building and sustaining agility. Using our proven transformation framework, Path to Agility,® we start with your goals and then partner with you to formulate an Agile transformation strategy to equip leaders and teams with the right capabilities to achieve them.
As your transformation partner, our goal is to accelerate your organization through the journey, lessen the complexity of change, and mitigate shortcomings. Our Agile transformation services address three common phases: Build your Agile transformation strategy and roadmap, implement your plan efficiently and successfully, and sustain agility.
Identify the Fastest Path to Success With A Transformation Roadmap
Identify your need, prioritize your desired outcomes, and communicate your compelling purpose. With our Leading the Path to Agility Service, we help you to assess your current state so that you have a baseline to measure progress as you continue your journey. The assessment will be used to build a customized transformation roadmap and backlog focused on the results you are hoping to achieve.
Implement Your Strategy and Measure Progress Along the Way
A key criteria for a successful transformation is providing support for all levels of the transformation. Our Leading the Path to Agility, System Agility, and Team Agility services include training at the leadership, system, and team level. We use Path to Agility to conduct periodic assessments so that you have visibility on how the plan is progressing.
Our goal is to equip your organization with the capabilities needed to continue your journey on your own. We partner with you to build internal coaching capabilities and give you additional tools needed to sustain forward momentum.
Coaches partner with leaders and stakeholders to form an Agile Leadership Team to guide your change, to develop and execute a transformation plan, and resolve organizational impediments.

“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 framework 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."”
Establish the business goal
It should be easy for everyone in the organization to understand and to remember. This will help aim your teams’ efforts and provide a rallying point for the transformation investment.
Confirm the right transformation scope for your company at this time
Starting with a scope that’s manageable based on your aspirations (and constraints) can lead to your long term success.
Determine funding investment level
We recommend engaging your finance partners early and often here to help you consider a funding approach that offers the greatest chance for long-lasting organizational resilience.
Engage key stakeholders early
Building support early for your business goals and giving key partners a seat at this table early and often will pay tremendous dividends long term.
