The Enterprise Transition Framework - ETF

Agile is more about a change in mindset than yet-another-process-definition and it encourages the empowerment of individuals, self-organization, shared responsibility and focus. Becoming Agile as an organization goes beyond focussing only on Product Development and Delivery dimensions. It permeates the whole organization.

agile42 uses the proven ORGANIC Agility™ Principles and the ETF™ in order to enable you create the right Agile environment. Based on the ORGANIC Agility™ Principles, the ETF™’s focuses on allowing an organization to implement continuous improvement and to experience change in an empirically controlled way.

There is no “One Size fits all”

One of the biggest risk of implementing Agile in an enterprise is that the new methods soon become defined processes after a while. Agile means continuous change and improvement, hence if you try to create a blueprint or a defined agile process, it is sure to fail. Instead your people and environment should learn and understand how to act and work according to the Agile Principles, using agile practices and tools.

What Agile will Improve

Becoming Agile is the way to continuous improvement for any organization. It enables you to deliver better products, create a motivative and innovative work environment, achieve a faster time to market and improve communication with your customers. However, you cannot buy Agile! It is an individual journey that each organization and each team within this organization needs to take.

The ETF™ by agile42 provides the right tools and methods to become Agile no matter whether you are a local business or a multinational corporation.
