Agile team design

Defining what your future organization will look like

Achieve a successful transition

The increasing need for businesses to constantly adapt to new market conditions means more leaders are opting to move towards an agile organizational structure. Their objective? To become more customer-centric, implement faster learning and decision cycles, and build a network of empowered teams motivated by a common purpose. 

To achieve a successful transition, it’s crucial for them to go through the process of thoroughly defining the value streams that create different experiences, so they can confidently build their organizational model and set the foundation for how agile teams will operate on a day-to-day basis. 

How Orgvue helps

Orgvue is a purpose-built platform that enables you to create roles, assign full-time-equivalent or track costs, so you can visualize and manage cross-functional teams at scale. It allows you to design a robust operating model, before you move onto the talent allocation and capacity management phase.  

Answer questions such as: 

  • Which value streams create experience? 
  • How are we thinking about organizing these teams?
  • What roles do we need in our structure? How do we get it right? 
  • How many FTEs should be assigned to every role?

Benefits of Orgvue for agile organizations

Orgvue enables a holistic transformation of key business areas and functions in your organization.

This part of the process involves building the structure, without necessarily focusing on talent allocation or capacity management (yet). It’s about creating a single source of trusted data in Orgvue, defining the right value streams, and building delivery into these value streams.
