Agile Fluency Project

The Agile Fluency® Diagnostic

Help your teams develop new capabilities

Use the Agile Fluency Diagnostic to understand how your teams are progressing and what you can do to help them.

The Diagnostic is a facilitated self-assessment conducted by experienced agile coaches. You can either work with a licensed facilitator or become licensed to conduct the Diagnostic yourself.

The Diagnostic Process

Determine Goals

The Diagnostic starts with you and your facilitator discussing your organizational goals and, based on those goals, which Agile Fluency Zones are the best fit for your teams.

Assess Current State

Next, your facilitator will lead a self-assessment workshop for each of your teams. The facilitator will use targeted questions and exercises to guide team members to new insights about the nature of their work, the benefits they’re providing, and where they have opportunities for improvement.

Synthesize Strategies

Finally, your facilitator will curate the results of all the self-assessment workshops into a set of reports and recommendations. Some will be given to teams, to reinforce the insights they gained from their workshops. Others will look at trends across all your teams, giving you new information about how your organizational system affects team fluency. Your facilitator will suggest several options for changes that will help you meet your organizational goals.
