Optimizing Agile & DevOps Transformation

Unlocking the power of Agile and DevOps methodologies for seamless integration and continuous delivery

We firmly believe that agility, especially when it includes DevOps practices, is essential in today's business landscape. Agility is not merely part of a method, framework, or belief system to us, but a transformative mindset. We enhance outcomes for our clients by integrating DevOps principles into our approach. Our focus is on achieving Better Value Sooner Safer Happier (BVSSH) by aligning DevOps practices with business goals. This synergy enables organizations to thrive in the Age of Digital, driving faster and more reliable software delivery, fostering innovation, and adapting seamlessly to changing market dynamics.

Our Transformation Approach

We work in partnership with our clients on an end-to-end transformation journey from strategy definition to execution. Our transformation approach is emergent and iterative, because we believe that old ways of thinking do not achieve new ways of working. Therefore, we cluster the required activities into three phases: Explore, Prepare, and Transform (Fig. 1).

Explore phase –“why”: With a clear case for change, we make every stakeholder understand why the transformation is needed. Moreover, we gather a powerful guiding coalition of senior executives to actively lead the transformation and help to remove high-level impediments.

Prepare phase – minimum viable operating model (MVOM): Within the prepare phase, we establish a high-level organizational design (MVOM) for the new organization. This includes a high-level mapping of the organizational structure based on value streams and a decision on the scaling framework to be used for the transformation. After establishing a shared understanding of the transformation approach and defining OKRs, our product launch journey provides the next steps.

Transform phase – product launches: In the final transform phase we transform your organization step-by-step. Product teams are launched supported by coaching and consulting from Deloitte specialists, support structures are created and impediments related to the dimensions of people, processes, organization, and technology are removed constantly. This iterates until a couple of products are launched. Once we have reached a tipping point, we will support you with lean portfolio management and lean budgeting to allow for a value orientation and a constant validation of the benefit hypothesis at scale.
