The Challenge

The business understood the benefits of transitioning to agile ways of working, Agile allows teams to play to their strengths and identify opportunities for development and improvement. Agile businesses leverage their talent and create teams that perform at their best. When companies are as large as our clients, they often struggle with Agile development because it requires a large cultural shift.

Chaucer have a longstanding relationship with this Oil & Gas major and have several active projects. This gives us a deep understanding of the client’s ways of working putting us in the optimum position to help position the client for successful transition to Agile ways of working.

The Solution

Chaucer worked closely with leadership teams to develop and deploy a strong workplace transformation strategy & programme. We looked at: culture, change & engagement, executive mindset coaching, transformation road mapping, training materials development and stakeholder vision alignment to governance of day-to-day Agile processes.

We understood the need for leadership teams to drive the change as teams tend to learn by example. We ensured leadership team commitment and drive to deliver the change and ensured their cooperation and collaboration by bringing their vision to life using agile practices.

We ensured that all departments within the organisation were brought along the journey through vision development, road mapping and storytelling.

We clearly demonstrated that Agile processes can work together with traditional Waterfall planning and investment management processes.

The Results

We create a wealth of training material that enabled the ongoing development of agile workplaces across the organisation and saw successful transformation in non-traditional areas.
