The ABS had been using agile frameworks for some time but was aware that its use was not consistent across the organisation. The ABS engaged ZXM to improve its agile capability maturity and, in its non-software product management initiatives, and build business agility.
ZXM took a risk-based approach to introducing business agility to the ABS. With 35% of agile initiatives struggling due to inconsistent practices across teams, it introduced agile to the entire agency in a very practical, relatable way that would be immediately usable and create a consistent understanding of what agile is and how to make use of it in a business context.
Because the role of the ABS is to produce high quality, objective and responsive national statistical services, ZXM’s solution focussed on business agility.
ZXM implemented a training course that looked at an agile mindset. It was designed to help people to immediately start working in an agile way.
ZXM travelled all over Australia, delivering 16 workshops to 306 participants, covering:
ZXM used a hands-on approach to the training sessions with tools like play- and scenario based learning as well as LEGO® Serious Play®. The result was a high level of practical knowledge that could be immediately applied.
Designed for business over a software specific context.
87% reported their knowledge and skills improved as a result of the workshop.
91% felt they would use what they learned back in their workplace.
