About

Rachel is an agile transformation specialist working with individuals, teams and leaders who seek to become more effective.

Organisations in the 21st century operate in complex, changing, uncertain, volatile and often ambiguous environments. To stay current and remain competitive organisations need an environment and a workforce that is responsive. One that can quickly adapt to emerging needs. People need the support, skills and abilities to respond to changing demands. Agile is the catalyst for meeting such demands.

 

Agile though is a much used and often misunderstood term. Just because the term is spoken doesn’t mean an organisation will be agile. Being agile is at its core a mindset. Rachel helps teams cultivate an agile mindset and become self-organising.

Agile transformation is a journey with rich benefits. Starting well helps make the most of the journey with all the excitement and rewards that come with discovery and learning.

According to the 2019 Version One State of Agile Survey the top five benefits of adopting agile are:

  • Ability to manage changing priorities

  • Project visibility

  • Business/IT alignment

  • Team morale

  • Delivery speed/time to market

 

If you want to leverage the benefits of agile contact Rachel for a confidential conversation.
