Benefitfocus wanted to go agile, but sought a way to do it with limited outside help. The problem was that they didn’t have much internal agile experience — and they had only a limited budget.
We “coached the coaches” with large scale on-site training, then multiplied the effect throughout the organization with infrastructure to make long term agile adoption sustainable.
- Agile Transformation Roadmap
Our first step was to create an environment where executive leadership could understand the process and benefits of agile transformation. This required effective communication and a well-articulated roadmap for the organization.
- Onsite ScrumMaster Training
In a series of onsite sessions, we trained a cohort of agile leaders that would form the company’s backbone of Certified ScrumMasters and Product Owners.
- Agile Team Curriculum
To continue the momentum and encourage wide-spread agile adoption, we helped Benefitfocus establish a training curriculum for hundreds of team members across IT and product organizations.
- Agile Infrastructure
We then continued to “coach the coaches” by implementing new coaching frameworks and agile liftoff procedures, leading to sustainable transformation at all levels.
On a limited budget, we helped Benefitfocus complete a sustainable agile transformation largely on their own initiative.
