OUR AGILE MODEL

We understand that implementing a new culture of delivering sustainable customer value is not a minor undertaking for any organization, regardless of size. For organizations that have adopted agile, the challenges to maximize delivery excellence and scale these methods can be no less daunting. That is why we have designed a holistic and pragmatic approach to agile adoption and sustainability. The Da Vinci Agile Model is built on four pillars that insure successful adoption and scale across an organization. The enterprise framework we have built supports this foundation through recognition of, and integration with, legacy processes.

APPRAISAL

Da Vinci recognizes that your organization’s culture plays an essential role in the adoption and sustainability of agile. The appraisal pillar of the Da Vinci Agile Model also recognizes the need to understand an organization’s change capacity and leadership support for change.

Da Vinci uses methods to assess these fundamental components of the adoption process which provide us, and your company leadership, with metrics and visibility to any impediments to successful adoption and business value delivery. We can then tailor a program to fit your specific needs through executive coaching and fully utilizing the other pillars of the model.

Da Vinci enhances these methods for organizations that have implemented an agile practice and want transparency and insight into the value being delivered.


WORKSHOP

Da Vinci believes education is the heart of any effort to increase the value and speed of delivery, regardless the product or industry. While the appraisal pillar is the organizational groundwork for agile, education creates the personal foundation critical to agile team success.

Our workshops, both executive and project team, start with the fundamentals to establish a baseline understanding of both the common agile ceremonies, and the proven practices of the Da Vinci Agile Model. We then work with the project team to build the value foundation your company desires. Our methods use input from the team to create a working backlog within the workshop. This process immerses the team members in the practical application of the agile ceremonies and fosters the understanding of the concepts to better prepare them to move forward quickly at its conclusion.


COACHING

As fundamental as the workshop is, the Da Vinci coaching pillar extends the education in agile concepts and methods to the daily operations of project and product team delivery.

Due to the absence of prescriptive methods in agile, coaching is a blend of art and science. Working with the team, the Da Vinci Coach guides the team to a deeper understanding of the concepts, while insuring they are focused on delivering business value using the proven practices the Da Vinci model defines.


SECOND LOOK

As agile, and agile teams, mature and scale across an organization, Da Vinci Second Look provides an assessment of the value being delivered. The process examines individual team delivery metrics, product management assessment, appropriate financial data and conversation with business and technical leaders.

This pillar is an essential component in determining the investment value of these methods for organizations with an established agile practice.
