  • Clarity on the value streams or portfolios we’re optimizing for and clarity on their demand (3 year outcomes, annual outcomes, initiatives and EPICs)
  • Education for leaders from business, product and technology on team and org design patterns that enable agility and flow of outcomes. Deep dive into roles at every level and the leadership triangle
  • Current State: Mapping of current teams to the desired outcomes and initiatives
  • Gap Analysis: Identifying aligned, somewhat aligned and misaligned teams and defining actions and patterns to use to address alignment
  • Future State: Designing the logical and physical (with names) teaming model
  • Implementation: Communication, change management, risk mitigation and transition of teams to the new model
  • Team of Team Planning Kickoff: Team design is not complete until the groups have kicked off planning in their new structure at the team of teams  or product structure

This step includes workshops for leaders at all levels to learn why companies are shifting from project to persistent product teams, common team structures, roles and patterns to address shared service teams.


Current State Workshop

This workshop is very interactive and involves understanding of your current teams. A team profile card is created with details such as skills, roles, allocation (run, grow, transform), current work and gaps.


Clarity on Demand

This workshop is focused on building out the demand funnels. This includes defining OKRs, initiatives and breaking them into Epics. Each Epic identifies which groups (business or technology) are needed.

Future State Design and Implementation
