Guide the organisation in their agile journey with the IATM framework

Help transform the Asian-based organisation from the team level to the leadership team, while taking into account a difficult context: waterfall and agile methods colliding, high-pressure and competitive environment, technical issues and heavy workload.


Market demand becomes higher because of stronger competition

Questions such as “Why do we need Agile?” and statements like “We do Agile!” are very common and have settled in their business. However, the benefits of Agile are not felt and the company has to improve their time to market and their quality. The client is confronted with increasing competition and technical issues which overwhelms their innovative potential. They are running behind in improving both delivery and their way of working.

  • Poor quality of delivered solutions
  • Management and business teams are not in collaboration with development teams
  • Disruptive prioritisation for getting the job done hinders delivery
  • Different levels of KPIs are conflicting for “doing the right things” and “doing things”

Are you facing similar challenges?
