Agile project management

Agile & stable methods in symbiosis
You need more customer orientation and "go to market spirit" in your company? You want fast, "quick-witted" employees who focus on the essentials and avoid unnecessary work? You want to use the advantages of agile working without having to give up the stability of efficient line processes ?
We believe that agility and stability are interdependent. Become agile-stable.
"With ICO's EmpowerSystem, we have found our answer to responding to the current requirements in terms of agile methods and principle-based leadership."

Efficiency or innovation?

Those who rely only on agility drift off into utopian creativity. In modern times of disruptive innovation, the mere pursuit of stability leads to the inability of keeping pace. Innovation or core business, new or established, optimization or development, creative space or efficiency - are these ambivalent goals? Organizational ambidextry secures your future.
Organizations that manage to balance agility & stability in a meaningful way maintain overview and have a clear advantage. They are both flexible and autonomous. You are agile-stable. But when is a topic suitable for an agile project? Which agile method is the right one? How do my teams know whether agile work or process adherence is appropriate?

Mastering complex challenges in VUCA times
Agile project management is generally characterized by lean processes, fast iteration cycles and a focus on short-term goals. The project strategy is aligned with the customer and his needs. Open and direct communication, a learning-by-doing mentality and the principle of transparency are further central elements in daily agile action.
Stable agile project management

Structures become more agile, knowledge silos are reduced and employees are strengthened in their self-management. This is, beyond the competence of agile project management, a cultural change to agile mindset in the whole company. Employees are able to distinguish between agile requirements and stable requirements. They know how to operate the alteration switch between innovation and core business and how to use the appropriate method. With the ICO EmpowerSystem® modern methods such as Design Thinking, Kanban, Scrum or Srumban as well as OKR (Objectives and Key Results) become a matter of course for your employees in a simple and pragmatic way.

Stable-agile project management tool
In addition to agile methodological knowledge about SCRUM, Design Thinking, KANBAN & Co, the agile mindset of the employees is crucial. When does each of these methods come into play? How to operate the "alteration switch" between free space and process loyalty, agility and stability? The ICO EmpowerSystem® offers pragmatic implementation by means of the agile "high touch - low tech" project management tool EmpowerMap®. Manage complex and novel problems together. Cross-hierarchical and cross-departmental perspectives are compiled, criteria for action (= principles) are described and concrete steps for action (milestones with checkpoints) are developed. Transparency is guaranteed at all times.
