Using Reconfig to Create Agile at Scale

According to one study, 90% of all companies have adopted agile methods in some form. Typically, companies use agile methods for software development, but many also use agile principles more broadly.  At the same time, some companies experience challenges with agile implementation (e.g., see this article). This suggests that there is a need for systematic tools and methods to support both initial implementation and continuous development of agile organizations. 

Reconfig is a software tool that is used to map and optimize the design of an organization. There are at least three factors that make it relevant for agile organizations.

The key feature of agile organizations is the small, cross-functional and self-managing teams. But how do you set up these teams – which roles should be combined to form a team? Reconfig has an algorithm that helps you identify teams with a combination of roles that benefit from being organized together.

One critique of the original Agile approach was that it was too focused on the individual team. Somehow, we need to scale up this concept to fit larger organizations. In a larger organization, you will have multiple teams or squads, organized within larger units, “tribes”, or programs in a project-based organization. You can use Reconfig to make sure that you set up a logical grouping of different teams within larger units. 

Finally, even in an Agile organization, not every part needs to be flexible, in most organizations, there needs to be a combination of stable and moving parts. Reconfig supports this by making sure that you can filter and optimize the organizational structure based on work processes or functions. And the algorithm is set up so that it will customize the design of the organization to each unit, rather than imposing one design principle to all units independent of how they work.

Sustainability transformation

Achieve Success with Digital, Agile, and Sustainability Transformations

In today’s fast-paced business environment, organizations are constantly looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve. To achieve this leaders are looking to digital, agile, and sustainability transformations to bring their organization an edge. These three areas of transformation are closely related and, when implemented together, can lead to groundbreaking improvements in a company’s overall performance. However, these types of transformations can be complex and challenging to implement. That is where Reconfig comes in.

Reconfig is a data-driven cloud platform that helps organizations successfully navigate digital, agile, and sustainability transformations. Using Reconfig organizations can align their organization with their strategy. It provides a comprehensive suite of tools and services that make it easy for organizations to diagnose their pain, understand what causes that pain, and design interventions that solve the underlying problems.

A major benefit of Reconfig is that it helps organizations to incorporate sustainability into their overall business strategy. The cloud platform provides a wide range of tools and services that can help organizations be conscious of their own practices and how their value chains are carried out. By implementing sustainable practices, companies can not only reduce their environmental impact, but also improve their reputation and attract customers who are looking for more sustainable products. 

Reconfig provides organizations with access to a wide range of experts who have extensive experience in digital, agile, and sustainability transformations. These experts can provide guidance and support throughout the implementation process, which can help organizations achieve their goals more quickly and effectively.

Data-driven methods can play a critical role in achieving successful digital, agile, and sustainability transformations. By leveraging data to gain insights into business operations, leaders can make informed decisions about how to improve performance and ensure sustainable growth. For example, by analyzing data on communication patterns within an organization, leaders can make adjustments to roles and structure to reduce duplication of effort, ensure more efficient use of resources and ensure everyone has the information they need when they need it to achieve their goals. Effective communication can also improve employee morale and motivation, which can lead to higher productivity and better performance. In short, efficient communication within an organization is a key factor in driving performance and achieving success.

Additionally, the data-driven methods provided by Reconfig can be used to track the progress of digital, agile, and sustainability transformations and make adjustments as needed. The use of data-driven methods can also help organizations to identify areas of improvement when it comes to sustainability, such as identifying the most significant environmental impacts and implementing strategies to reduce them. With the help of Reconfig, organizations can make more informed decisions and achieve their digital, agile, and sustainability transformation goals more effectively.

In conclusion, Reconfig is helping organizations successfully navigate digital, agile, and sustainability transformations. It provides a comprehensive suite of tools and services that make it easy for organizations to align the organization with the company’s strategy and incorporate sustainability into their overall business strategy. With the help of Reconfig, organizations can streamline their operations, improve efficiency, reduce their environmental impact, improve their reputation and attract more customers.
