We’ll transform your growth and retention efforts into a collaborative, high-speed machine.
Agile MLE, AI, Data Science
Exadel can help you merge Agile philosophy into your data science practices. Building the first, encouraging a fail-fast iterative mindset, fostering collaboration, and planning flexibly will link your data science organization with the rest of your business’s Agile culture.
Agile Service Management
While Agile frameworks are usually marketed toward software development, we know the importance of aligning in-house and external practices to create consistent customer value in fast-paced markets, no matter the industry.
We build our business model around high-quality outputs because we believe that all organizations can drive growth through Agile best practices. Exadel can help build your Agile vision to deliver value. Once we have your cross-functional team established, we can assist with ongoing support and mentorship.
Our Agile Transformation Process
We closely follow Agile transformation best practices to ensure that your organization can consistently deliver quality products and services. As the processes we introduce become more mature, your team will take the driver’s seat, and we’ll transition to a sustainment model that helps root an overall culture of Agile.
Gather Agile Leadership and Excellence
We assemble an in-house coalition of people who understand both your company culture and Agile transformation practices to aggregate their shared knowledge and create a group of evangelists for your overhaul.
Assess Agile Capabilities Through Interviews
Our team gets a full picture of your organization and its vision for software development, Agile marketing, data science, and machine learning through interviewing and assessing individuals in each area.
Define Shared Vision and Goals
Exadel experts gather targets, document problems, and see how they align with executive Big Bets. We produce one-pagers and charters that help your leaders create informed Agile solutions.
Create Agile Transformation Roadmap
We reduce planning friction by creating an Agile transformation roadmap that aligns with your current strategic goals. Your Agile strategy provides changes in small bites with three iterations, during which the team can test new approaches, increase Agile adoption, and readjust default behaviors.
Build Teams for Customer/ Business Value
Our Agile coaches work with each team within your organization to develop its independent identity and motivate the individual members toward immediate goals or large-scale projects. Your teams are empowered by developing t-shaped skills, becoming more self-driven, and joining an iterative and fail fast culture.
Establish Rhythm of Business (ROB)
We help your organization prioritize on-time Agile delivery, finding the right cadence for meetings and ways of working. We leverage our experience and outsider status to minimize drag and overhead by implementing Agile methods that help you manage time more wisely and effectively.
Standardize Ways of Working
Collectively, we create Standard Operating Procedures (SOPS), standardized communications, and dashboards that give visibility into teams’ ways of working and develop trust between levels within your organization.
Fine-Tune your Agile Strategy
Following Agile transformation best practices, we pause at certain intervals and check in with the teams. We take this front-line insight and determine any adjustments for planning out the next push in maturation and operational changes. We’re also sure to build in rest periods and celebrate the wins to optimize team satisfaction and productivity.
Scale Your Agile Transformation Initiatives
Now that your Agile transformation culture has taken root, we scale it out with custom training for executives and middle managers on all your operational processes and tools. This will ensure that your Agile transformation is in line with initiative, product, and portfolio planning — keeping things on schedule and running smoothly.
Retrain and Sustain Agile Coaching
In order to ensure there is a lasting impact, we’re always available to help build upon our earlier work. Wherever it makes sense, our Agile transformation services can be applied to other organizations, divisions, or companies within your portfolio.
Exadel stands apart from other Agile Transformation Service providers by focusing on enhancing and improving your existing Agile processes, rather than mandating a methodology.
