Why and How to Assess Agile Maturity
Benefits of Maturity Health
There are many reasons why companies adopt Lean-Agile but not many challenge that agile ways of working support higher product adoption rates, cost savings via productivity gains in developing and higher employee engagement.
That implies that you want to maximize your Maturity Health and that is best done if you know where you get most out of your investment.
How to Measure
You can use standard or customized Assessments. Depending on how you have structured your agile journey and organization you can measure on Enterprise, Portfolio or Team levels, and across roles.
We use Crawl, Walk, Run and Fly terminology to emphasize the flow of movement that maturity depicts within a team.
The Radar visualizes many aspects of the maturity health in one single object. Not only can you compare with other organizations, you can compare across time, teams – and within teams in easy ways.
You can use the health radar in retrospectives, where they support talks about what matters and add value.
