Be agile, lean and holistic
The “New” way of delivering at scale
Companies that adopt an Agile approach are typically positioned to capture many new opportunities. Frequent measurement, feedback and adjustment enable teams to achieve greater project alignment.
Agile is much more than just a new process – it is a culturally and conceptually different way of building value-added services based on software.
To tailor agility to a specific business scenario, we evaluate each client and project size across four different categories that go beyond project management aspects.
Cultural behavior change requires the right mindset, experience, skills training and professional coaching.
Governance enables consistent management, guidance and decision-making. Frequent communication results in greater collaboration and expectations alignment.
Iterative agile approaches encourage feedback and continuous improvement at all levels.
The right collaboration tools allow teams to focus on continuous delivery.
Accenture serves clients by drawing upon more than 10 years of experience in agile approaches, which consist of complex, large-scale and distributed agile projects. Specialized consultants help organizations transform to agile, helping make needed changes in processes, tools and people.

Thanks to our experience in a wide range of agile projects as well as our numerous certified trainers and coaches, Accenture has profound knowledge and a great deal of experience in executing agile projects. We support our clients by starting and optimizing agile project approaches with four services: Advisory, Assessment, Training and Coaching.
Within early stage thinking Accenture’s Agile Advisors are helping our clients to examine their existing organizations and support their transformation to a scaled agile delivery model. We also advise executives and management on change processes for IT and business leaders. Accenture supports the entire end-to-end lifecycle, from idea, to roll-out, to optimization.
We advise and coach by developing a vision and release roadmap, assisting with change management for IT and business leaders and defining corresponding milestones. We provide, evaluate and support implementation of many established training packages and work and/or software tools.
Accenture’s Agile Assessments focus on whether a project, product or even an organization is suitable for agile. Through a clearly defined set of evaluation criteria, our experts assess the maturity level and give recommendations on improvement possibilities as well as ideas for optimization. We perform the assessments with tools and models that have been refined through the years, such as the Agile Diagnostics Tool, the Cultural Assessment Tool and the Agile Capability Model.
Understanding and learning new concepts starts with effective and appropriate training. We offer various training courses on different agile topics for entire project teams as well as for managers and agile coaches. There are also specialized courses for various agile roles such as Product Owner, Scrum Master, Agile Requirements Engineers and others. Our trainers offer more than 20 diverse and interactive trainings on topics for the whole agile lifecycle.
Agile transformation no longer means only the introduction of agile techniques and methods at the team level, but above all also the smooth integration of agile business areas into the overall enterprise. Accenture Agile Coaches are providing support on the entire range of agility – from Design Thinking through SAFe, Scrum and Kanban to DevOps and Lean StartUp – and can tailor these methods to specific company requirements. We help our customers establish their own agile coaches and create a deep understanding of agility in the entire management – a key to agile success. The necessary changes are firmly anchored in corporate culture.
