Making changes in IT is like throwing a stone in a lake. The change causes ripples, which reach much further than you would think when just looking at the problem you’re helping with. We have, over the years, gotten better at helping companies work through these changes, but we have also seen a need for people who can help the rest of the organisation deal with the challenges posed by a rapidly changing IT department. For that reason, we’ve expanded our services to include Agile Transformation – a service designed specifically around working with organisations to adapt to IT departments that are capable of easily and rapidly turning customer requirements into deliverable features and products.
Before making the transition from existing IT practices to new ones, it’s best to have an understanding of the potential impact – Who will be affected, and in what ways? What changes will it bring? Who wants those changes? Who understands them, and who doesn’t? Who feels threatened by the coming changes, and how can those feelings be brought out, understood, accepted, and addressed?
There are challenges that go along with any sort of organisational change. We’ve come across a wide variety of them, over the years.
