Why Team Agility?
Agile teams and teams of Agile teams create and support the business solutions that deliver value to the enterprise’s customers. Consequently, an organization’s ability to thrive in the digital age is entirely dependent on the ability of its teams to deliver solutions that reliably meet a customer’s needs.
Agile teams create an environment that maximizes innovation, value delivery, and sustainability.
Remove your functional silos
While organizations commonly align for functional excellence, value delivery spans functional silos. Therefore, all Agile teams are cross-functional, with all the people and skills needed to deliver value across traditional organizational silos, largely eliminating handoffs and delays
Agile Teams should be cross functional
Don't compromise on Quality
Although organizational hierarchies and organization by function provide time tested structures, practices, and policies, they simply can’t provide the speed and quality needed for the digital age. In contrast, team and technical agility focuses on organizing cross-functional Agile teams that apply the best of Agile methods and techniques, without being bound to any one specific Agile way of working. This approach creates long lived teams that apply built-in quality practices throughout the product lifecycle; they learn together and grow together. Further, these teams form cross-functional teams of Agile teams that are aligned along the enterprise value streams and are thereby able to cover the full development lifecycle, from inception, to deployment and production. These teaming constructs help instantiate the second operating system, which gives the enterprise the resiliency and adaptability it needs to deliver value directly, with far fewer dependencies, handoffs, and delays. The result is more innovative business solutions, delivered to the market more quickly than ever before.
