Agile Delivery Lead, National Australia Bank

I highly recommend Niall to anyone looking to drive Agile cultural change within an organisation or project. Niall is the consummate professional and embodies Agile and lean thinking in His everyday work.I worked with Niall on a major program of work at Telstra, and I consider Niall to be a thought-leader in implementing agile at scale. Niall was able to strike a delicate balance of being a pioneer by leading from the front, and servant leader, encouraging others to grow within the project.

We're not agile capable

Within your organisation you have:

  • the wrong mix of skills/experience

  • under-performance issues

  • a lack of knowledge or expertise

  • ill-defined roles & responsibilities

  • an inability to quickly scale capability

Agile is not delivering

Teams within your organisation:

  • do not consistently get work completed

  • don't have what they need to provide accurate, timely reports on status

  • cannot provide enough delivery predictability

  • are overwhelmed or overloaded with conflicting priorities

  • have trouble dealing with scale and complexity whilst using agile delivery methods

How we operate isn't agile

Your supposedly agile organisation is:

  • overly complex and slow to respond

  • command & control & hierarchical

  • spending too much time doing business with itself (hand-offs)

  • not arranged around value delivery

We lack an Agile Mindset

In your organisation there is a need for:

  • expert agile coaching support and advice

  • executive leadership coaching and offsite facilitation

  • experiential role play workshops to help shift mindset
