Agile Audit

Our agile audit enables companies to understand the maturity of their agile transformation journey through our expert analysis across teams, processes, technology and culture. Whether a simple scrum team or an enterprise engineering team running SAFe, our audit is focussed on finding efficiency gains as well as helping you drive up the efficacy of your output

Why run an agile audit?

Agile fails, or struggles to deliver optimally for many reasons. Sub-optimal team practices, culture or governance can fail to produce high performing teams. Technology constraints can hinder the journey towards Continuous Delivery and a DevOps culture. And organisational silos or financial constraints can be a barrier for the successful rollout of a scaled agile implementation. 

Over 20 years, MMT Digital have run hundreds of successful agile deliveries and provided collaborative coaching from technical teams to the C-suite. The audit is a great way to provide an external view on specific challenges or just general areas for improvements, and delivers clear recommendations that can be measured and iterated upon.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Whilst adaptable depending on a specific clients level of agile maturity and scale, the audit works in 2 key stages and focusses across 3 key areas. The first stage is an observation phase where our agile consultants work with,observe and interview key team members. From Product Owners and Scrum Masters within the team to more senior stakeholders (Senior Product Managers, Heads of Digital or IT and the C-suite) as well as technical leads (developers, architects and infrastructure / DevOps) we spend time across the teams. If part of a review of a scaled process such as SAFe then the ideal period for the observation is around the time that P.I. Planning (or equivalent) is carried out.

The focus areas are:

  • Team performance (best practices, culture / environment, leadership, backlog management and governance processes)

  • Technology (Architectural vision, Infrastructure / DevOps culture to enable Continuous Delivery, use of data and analytics to drive the efficacy of the program)

  • Scale (use of frameworks such as SAFe, LeSS, Scrum @ Scale or other, understanding of value streams to fund and drive backlogs, organisational structure and culture).
