Supporting Agile Transformation: A Proposal for a Scientifically Founded Agile Assessment Model
Agile methodology has been a trending topic over the past two decades. Organizations are establishing agile transformation programs to reap its benefits, and cope with the everchanging business and technology landscape. Yet, making sense of the manifold domains contributing to the success of an agile transformation, and orchestrating them with a great synergy is not a simple task. To navigate in this complexity and establish roadmaps, organizations primarily need to understand where they stand. There are a multitude of Agile Assessment Models (AAM) that are designed with the intent of identifying the state of an agile transformation in an organization. Designing an AAM is a valuable step towards this need, however, such models tend to lack vital aspects. Although “What” is needed seems straightforward, in our research, we are trying to focus on “Why” lacking aspects are vital, and “How” to enable effective and efficient value creation through Agility.
