The Agile Panache partners and our extended network of specialists offer a full range of services for all levels of your organization. We can combine consulting, coaching, and training in a customized program based on your needs and priorities.

ENTERPRISE CONSULTING

 

 

Enterprise- or program-level support for software and business agility

The art of consulting is to provide expert guidance in achieving your goals. We meet you where you are to help you get where you want to go. And we build your leadership capacity for effective organizational change in service of continuing improvement. ​

We provide focused advisory services that help you recognize issues, make difficult decisions, and engage long-standing obstacles: 

  • We guide you to improve trust and collaboration across operational areas including business, technology, and support services. 

  • We help you bring portfolio and product management into your Agile world. 

  • We support you to meet your complex needs of scaling: maintaining alignment, coordination, and creativity by combining top-down and bottom-up intelligence. 

  • We work with you to streamline your process flows to meet particular needs and opportunities. 

  • We advise you on organization design opportunities to optimize the sharing and distribution of authority, responsibility, collaboration, and the development of an Agile culture.

EXECUTIVE COACHING

 

 

Personalized developmental support for leaders at all levels

Executive coaching unlocks leadership potential in senior management and at any level of the organizational structure. It represents a deliberate investment in the important over the urgent. It is “working on the system” and not just “working in the system.”

Regardless of positional authority, leadership at all levels is the driving engine of organizational evolution. High-performing leaders develop the exceptional maturity needed to deal with today’s fast-changing complexity:

  • Cognitive capacities such as systems thinking, perspective-taking, and dealing with complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty

  • Behavioral qualities such as transparency, empowerment, respect, empathy, collaboration, adaptability, creativity over defensiveness, and productive approach to conflict

  • Self-management in the face of being obstructed or triggered, preventing their creativity from being sidelined by defensive patterns

  • Going beyond productive power to the power of vision, collaborative inquiry, alignment and integrity, feedback seeking and vulnerability

 

High-performing leaders inspire and empower, supporting employee engagement and retention and liberating the collaborative, creative power of the organization.

TEAM COACHING

 

 

Coaching for teams and individuals

Coaching for people and teams builds capacity to act with clarity, self-awareness, and accountability, and supports the emergence of collaboration and creativity. 

When used in conjunction with training, coaching amplifies the investment in classroom education, guiding learners to establish new behaviors through practice.

​We provide Agile process and technical coaching as well as developmental coaching for individuals:

  • We help you address the specific challenges your teams are facing to continuously achieve high performance outcomes

  • We develop and coach your coaches to advance their capabilities

  • We offer leadership development and executive coaching for your organizational change or transformation teams, and more broadly to your middle and senior leadership

  • We support managers in making the role shifts needed to lead more effectively in the complex organizational change, technology disruption, and competitive situations you face

  • We advise you on getting the most out of an organizational structure such as a Coaching Office or Center of Excellence
