We live in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous ( VUCA ) world, in which organisations are constantly challenged. In order to be more flexible and respond to threats and opportunities more swiftly, organisations must evolve and carry out agile transformations.

At Sherpany, we firmly believe that a clear agile transformation roadmap can provide an effective response to our ever-changing world.


What is an agile transformation?

Agile transformation denotes the process of reorganising, restructuring and rethinking your organisation in order to embrace the principles of agile working . An agile transformation enables an organisation to thrive in a fast-paced, flexible, self-organising, and collaborative environment, where a greater focus is placed on delivering value to customers than on organisational hierarchy and internal structure. An agile transformation can have dramatic benefits on an organisation’s finances, culture, and ability to compete, and must start from the top-down before initiating a bottom-up approach, too.

What must leaders do to ensure a successful agile transformation? 

In order to ensure success in their organisation’s agile transformation, leaders must follow a clear agile transformation roadmap that guarantees a systematic and strategic approach. A well-structured agile transformation roadmap addresses the following four components:

  • Organisational structure
  • Decision-making methods
  • Business processes, and 
  • Effective meeting management.

This white paper explores the process of agile transformation, in order to provide in-depth answers to the following questions:

  • What is an agile transformation?
  • What are the benefits of an agile transformation?
  • What are the four key areas of a successful agile transformation roadmap?
  • Which companies have benefited from an agile approach in each of these four areas? 
  • How can you successfully complete your agile transformation roadmap in 365 days?

Based on studies, expert opinions, real-life examples, and Sherpany's experience as a partner to more than 7,000 leaders of major European companies, this white paper seeks to provide the best possible advice about agile transformation to company C-suite leaders, and more.
