The Agile transformation framework starts with the company. Company objectives are the goalpost and Agile teams work backward from there. This means you’re not simply checking off a list of Agile practices you have implemented, you’re actually measuring the effects of those tasks on specific business results.
Through nine key business outcomes, 30 agile outcomes, and 100+ capabilities with over 400 acceptance criteria, businesses and coaches can drill down to a granular level to map the road to a successful transformation.
Path to Agility aims to resolve silos and move companies toward a system with fewer barriers to success. This means increased accountability and transparency to all.
The Path to Agility Agile transformation framework is a set of 150+ cards that comprehensively maps out a company’s path to Agile transformation. Since everyone is on the same page, the method delivers standardized processes instead of debatable fluff.
If your Agile transformation has not lived up to its promise, or if you're just getting started, Path to Agility's Agile transformation framework churns out objective steps to take next.

Before an organization embarks on the road to Agile, the team uses Path to Agility’s Agile transformation framework to sort through the nine suggested business outcomes. Each organization prioritizes the order of these business outcomes to suit their current needs and goals. Once organizations have laid out their roadmap of outcomes, Path to Agility walks them through the five stages of Agile transformation. They are:
Align all company players around a common why. Since every employee needs to invest in the Agile transformation, this stage gets past the resistance to change and unites the organization around common goals.
During this stage, the organization is actively learning processes, definitions, and how to create a permanent Agile culture. Leaders are learning how to track and eliminate roadblocks in the organization and teams are learning how to take ownership of their internal processes and identify where bottlenecks might arise.
During the Predict stage, enterprises use their knowledge to recognize hurdles and overcome them. Organizations in this stage limit volatility from their processes.
Dial things up a notch to accelerate the pace of business processes – from decision-making to communication to product or service transformation to delivery.
The organization responds in a nimble fashion to changing situations and easily adapts to market forces. Truly Agile companies can easily pivot to external forces, including competition and economic pressures.
