Enabling a high-performance culture
Your future depends on better meeting your customers' needs. Enabling a high-performance culture will shift your organisation into a permanent state of adaptation and agility that allows it to respond to disruption and thrive through innovation.
Mindset. Habits. Culture
The three building blocks of organisational performance – mindset, habits, culture – determine how you think, how you behave and the collective norms that result. If they're embedded in your past, they probably won't work for your future.
We help you update this DNA to support sustainable transformation.
Meet up for a new way of working
Our New Ways of Working – Modern Agile in Wellington Meetups are a chance to discuss, learn, share and experiment with all things Agile. We cover a whole range of topics including Business Agility, Lean Startup, Modern Agile and Enterprise Transformation. Here are a few videos of our online events during Covid-19...
Customer first. Across the organisation
Successful transformations begin by understanding that the desired end state always places the customer front and centre. Right across the organisation, the culture is oriented to exceed the customer's expectations.
We help you create the right leadership and organisational conditions to enable that culture to thrive. We align everything and everyone with a compelling purpose that’s relevant to the customer and we rewire leadership, processes and operational structures to focus on value.
How we help you get there
Understand current state
Understand problems. Define goal and values. Create the story and a change roadmap.
Design the change approach
Identify a starting place and take a 'thin slice' approach through one experiment. Adapt the authorising environment and governance to support the first new way of working teams.
Prove through a thin slice
Earn confidence and trust of teams by showing leadership is prepared to learn, lead and empower. Set up initial team(s) to operate in the new state and ensure the organisation's immune system doesn't hamper them.
Strengthen before spreading
Embed the new ways as the new normal. Ensure teams are on paths to natural, continuous improvement and that leadership is confidently being brave and backing the new normal everyday.
Sustain as change scales
Reset governance and assurance based on the experiment. Create a centre of excellence and vibrant communities of practice. Scale outwards across the organisation once the outcome is clear.
Contemporary practices and essential education
Education for your teams
As you implement new ways of working, you’ll need appropriate education for your teams. We have a range of ICAgile and Scrum.org-certified courses, as well as courses developed specially by Assurity. All our courses are taught by our practitioners – people who work at the delivery coalface every day. What’s learnt in the classroom can be applied in reality.
Your bespoke education programme
We build private education programmes for clients around their transformation roadmap. For precise details on each course, take a look at our public Education site.
