Bringing Agile into Bosch’s organisation, especially the IT department, in order to increase efficiency and reduce delivery time on new requirements. The goals were to gain time for more innovation and reach a better return on investment.

Challenge

Build Agile teams and integrate an Agile way of working in an high-pressure environment

  • Start from scratch and deploy the IATM model with a very motivated client in southern Germany
  • Begin the Assessment & Foundations after the first contact, to be delivered in a very interactive and collaborative way
  • Kick-off the first wave once the roadmap was defined
  • Support Bosch during 2 waves with small extra coaching interventions, such as the coach swap - a transformation practice where coaches from 2 different transformations take each other's role for a week. This method was proven to be very effective
