YOU ARE JUST A FEW CLICKS AWAY
FROM FINDING OUT HOW TO
FIX OR DESIGN YOUR
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Because we are open-sourcing our know-how for the benefit of everyone

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

You’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars/euros/pounds (sometimes millions) on your transformation but your critical objectives have been lost in a sea of complexity

Senior leaders are micromanaging, yet the clarity of the work and cohesion of the teams is in decline 

Your senior leaders are trying to pick up the pace of work but are insisting on impossible deadlines

Your current consultancy has landed and expanded and you are looking at significant schedule and cost overruns while your internal teams are becoming frustrated

You are trying to manage an old operating model while attempting to move to a new one and neither is clear enough for good decision-making

Your boss is looking for someone to blame and that could be you

If that does sounds familiar then you already know that digital transformation isn't easy and that major consultancies are expensive

And you're beginning to see the impact of problems that are typical of transformations, ones that we have witnessed time and again

SEEKING WAYS TO HELP WITH THOSE PROBLEMS INSPIRED US TO CREATE THE AGILE BUSINESS COMMUNITY

We became fed up with the typical consulting approach to transformation including: 

Watching clients pay potentially $/Euro/£ millions for a 400-slide PowerPoint that tells you what to do but doesn’t explain how to do it

Seeing people who are inexperienced at transformation taking big career risks doing a job they don’t fully understand, or becoming part of the problem by resisting all kinds of change, out of fear

Against the backdrop of our own experience of how a fix can be much easier and quicker to implement than anyone is letting on

Seeing implementations of agile frameworks or an operating model (such as Spotify) based on some other company’s context and not yours, taking you into areas you don’t need to focus on

Watching consulting teams sell their own expansion to get the transformation back on track

Observing endless conflicts play out in front of us because nobody has the right fix

Thankfully, all of that could be behind you…
