They’re usually called “maturity models”, and involve some sort of progression through different levels. The intent of these types of models is usually benign – for example managers or coaches in larger organizations who want to get a sense of where they should focus their improvement efforts, spot systemic problems, and help teams become more self-aware so they can focus their improvement efforts too.

We prefer to use other terms like “health check model”, because “maturity” sounds a bit… well…. patronizing. Plus, most of our models don’t involve progressing through different levels, and the primary audience is the team itself rather than management. Making Kanban work in matrix organizations. Blend the principles of flow, queues, theory of constraints, Lean, and Six Sigma to concoct a very powerful message that I have come to believe over the years: ‘You’ve got more capacity than you think!

In change management, you want your team to work “Agile”: it’s about adaptability, speed and coordination. That’s also a pretty accurate definition of graphic facilitation. A team at Vancity held an Agile Day, so I’m going to use this as an example to show how I planned out the session visually. To help you picture the event, there was over 100 people in the room and a structured agenda.

How to Build a Kick-ass Agile Team

" Nothing is more rewarding than sharing the adventure of building something that truly matters with engaged teammates. Despite sharing common values, there is no formula for the perfect agile team. Some implement scrum while others use kanban. Agile purists prefer co-located teams, but business realities sometimes necessitate distributing an agile team across geographies.
