At the Agile Business Consortium we are continuing to establish ourselves as the ‘go to’ people for any business, government organisation or charity interested in Agile Business Change.

As a not-for-profit company, our philanthropic goal is simple – to help organisations become more successful by becoming more Agile.

The Agile Business Change Framework encapsulates a light-touch, Agile approach to business change. It takes a customer focused, iterative and collaborative approach to delivering business value way beyond its proven success in IT right into the heart of business.

The framework scales from the evolution of customer-centric products and services by small Agile teams through projects (AgilePM®), programmes (AgilePgM®) and portfolios all the way up to setting and maintaining a customer-focused Agile strategy for the whole business.

Training and certification in AgilePM, AgilePgM and AgileBA® is offered by organisations accredited by both the Agile Business Consortium and APMG International.

Have you noticed that there has not been a new project management measurement metric this century? Of course time, cost and quality metrics are important but still projects are capable of providing nasty surprises.

So, we believe the answer is to measure the effect of people on a project. The unique element is continuously and simply measuring the quality of relationships between and within project teams, steering committee members and stakeholders and then tieing that to project success probability.

Our tool, called MeetingQuality does this using 45 second assessments for each member of Steering Committees, Project Teams and other Stakeholders. All results are returned within 24 hours to all participants graphically showing their effect on the project. Portfolio assessments on a project by project basis are automatically generated each month for PMO use.

Fractal has 25 years’ experience in using systems thinking in the areas of Strategy, Organisation, and Transformation for organisations of all types and globally.

At PMO as well as talking about “Patterns of Strategy” we’re also demonstrating our

Strategy War Room which brings together and integrates four sets of information & models to support strategic decision making:

  • Your strategic environment – how much is it changing & how fast?
  • Strategy – what could you & others do?
  • Your organisation – what is it capable of?
  • Transformation – what do we need to change & how fast compared with the rate of change of the environment?

Strategy development is much faster – critical when formulating and executing strategy may be needed within days or weeks. It is integrated – dealing coherently with the complexity and uncertainty you face.
