The design and implementation of an agile organization



The strategic impact of the lean startup methodology is to eliminate the risks of innovating without the validation of first-hand experience. A user experience design method based on iterative design and risk-based validation methods, it is a good idea to have a strategy to implement agile

As you can see, you're not asking your respondents for opinions, satisfaction or agreement. Our scientific research has shown that these are very bad fuel for algorithms. Instead, we ask for verifiable facts or -behaviour. For further reading, you can download our AMAIZE magazine dedicated to this topic or discover the scientific papers in the Resources section.

After you have downloaded this questionnaire, you can - in your Toolbox - edit, add/delete, and translate questions & answers to your liking. Clicking the "Help me PRAIORITIZE" buttons in the Toolbox activates our A.I. to help you finish your masterpiece..

Q. How is the impact of new and/or changed requirements assessed?
  1. We do not formally assess this
  2. We assess the impact of changed requirements in the end-of-month evaluation meeting with customers
  3. We develop an ad hoc process for this (e.g. retrospective evaluation)

Q. How do you determine the agile development strategy?
  1. Not or hardly
  2. Based on gut feeling or past experience
  3. Based on a formal strategy we have determined together with my team OR product owner
The artificial intelligence creating the questionnaires for the store has been inspired by over 11.000 whitepapers from more than 100 noted consultancy firms. Algorithms selected the 20% best papers and grouped papers from different consultancy firms into specific questionnaires. Why settle for less? Here is a summary how we did it.

If you feel you need outside support after conducting your assessment, we recommend the firms that have written the below mentioned whitepapers. Not having a paper selected does NOT mean that a firm does not give good advice.
You will download so much more than a set of questions and answers. This questionnaire contains everything for the full consultancy experience:
  • Respondent profiles for a helicopter view of your audience.
  • A maturity model with which algorithms calculate a six times smarter improvement target (compared to when you leave that to a human).
  • Improvement suggestions (per question) how to move from one answer to another
  • Suggested follow-on projects. After all, moving your organization from A to B might require more than just doing an assessment.
This English questionnaire is also available in Dutch, French, German, and Spanish.
