What is Agile Transformation?

In applying agile transformation, you’re able to constantly push towards your objectives while continuously improving, building more sustainable results, and benefiting from tangible impacts along the way.

Our Approach

Our agile transformation approach uses a dynamic strategy that delivers results for sustainable change, all at a reduced risk. In close partnership, we’ll guide you throughout the iteration process and provide the stability to help you see your transformation through completion.

It may seem easier to follow a traditional transformation method with a more rigid process. However, agile transformation has a more flexible approach that, once embraced, can have faster results and enduring progress.

Case Study: Agile Transformation in the Air Force

Our work within the U.S. Air Force’s Armament Directorate is just one example of how we’re partnering with organizations to access their agility and make progress that endures. As an Air Force leader in weapons development, our clients sought to reinvigorate their strategy after previous attempts to transform the organization neglected to yield desired outcomes.

Using an agile transformation approach framed with an agile roadmap and implemented through sprint cycles, we addressed the organization’s challenges holistically. Objectives focused on agile acquisition, communication, collaboration, workforce development, resource allocation, and infrastructure development. As a result, the Air Force:

  • Collectively defined a clear mission, vision, and core values to help guide operations and create organizational synergy
  • Combined change management with a technical solution to help the client mature their project management practices and better track program schedules
  • Designed a new organizational structure to better identify future weapons needs, promote cross-collaboration, and support the adoption of emerging technologies
  • Conducted strategic offsites to increase communication and consistently adjust to ensure ongoing organizational alignment

Whether you need a partner to hone key objectives or to scale transformation across your organization at large, Booz Allen is there every step of the way to facilitate, integrate, and support your transformation.
