Director of Agile Enablement, Cox Automotive
In 2016 Cox Automotive has broadened their use of AgilityHealth in the enterprise and we now have about 45 AHFs and 140 delivery teams set up in the system with more to come as newly minted AHFs start rolling out AgilityHealth further within DealerTrack.
As quite a few new coaches just got certified, AgilityHealth continues to be brought up in the Enterprise Agility group and the coaches are thinking about how to leverage AgilityHealth to understand team health and how it can be used to guide coaching engagements as well as transformation work.
From one of our coaches: “I partnered with our AgilityHealth champion to review open Organizational Growth Items with appropriate team members across the Portfolio, Program and Delivery team levels to successfully influence resolution and closure of five (5) organizational impediments. A majority of the resolved organizational impediments were related to increasing team stability as well as communication and gathering affected team input when team member changes were planned.
Measured business outcomes from the monthly business review have shown the capacity churn rate has dropped approximately in half from its high (20%) in February through August (the most recent measurement) while Feature time to market has also decreased by over 25% from January (15.8 weeks) through August (11.6 weeks)”
Working with the Agile Transformation has as always been fun. The team has been very responsive and, especially when it comes to issues or urgent requests, been able to turn things around very quickly, often in a day or less.
