For years, we’ve gotten questions from Agile seminar participants about how to apply Scrum to “real life,” as though these methods are “good in theory, but not at my company!” Some organizations may not be ready to adopt Agile methods completely, so we encourage people to take a short, Agile organizational readiness self-assessment to see if their company is Agile-Ready.

What stage is your organization at in adopting Agile or Scrum methods? If yours is like most companies, you are probably struggling or experiencing Agile “growing pains.” Often, the problem stems from management wanting the benefits of Agile without the understanding and support for what it takes to get there.

We can help. Download our article Is Your Organization Agile-Ready? to help you assess how ready your organization truly is to reap the benefits of Agile and Scrum. It can help pinpoint which areas are most in need of attention to avoid struggling.

The article includes key organizational questions we can help you answer, such as:
