What is Stage Five?

Stage Five companies are global leaders. They have an aggressive focus on the customer and their needs and can rapidly pivot to change through their network of teams over engaging a hierarchy in a plan-driven, approvals based governance. Stage Five companies have a ‘systems thinking’ mindset and operate to optimise the whole value stream. Their teams are made of “versatilist” over generalists and specialists and are highly attuned to their business environment.

What to avoid

86% of business transformations fail. Don't make decisions based on "gut instinct". Base growth on data that compares you to other companies and their successful actions for improvement. Agile IQ® provides you with this data.

Leadership and governance
Leaving teams as just teams. Decentralise more responsibility to high performing teams, including more leadership responsibilities, including responsibility for improving composability fitness.

Archetypal behaviours

Your Agile IQ® score shows that you think about the "big picture" and optimising its parts, governance, and architectures, rather than on optimising for outcomes for one project, product, or customer at the cost of another.

Leaders optimise for their own outcomes
move to
Teams sacrifice their own needs over the needs of the whole value stream.
Continuous improvement
move to
