Adopting Agile has numerous benefits to an organization – from improved quality to faster ROI. While implementing Agile for a specific team can be rather quick, becoming an Agile organization requires a transformation across multiple levels – the team, project, portfolio and enterprise. The Agile Adoption Maturity Model (AAMM) is a tool used to guide your company on the path to becoming a fully scaled Agile organization. Using our proprietary assessment and driven by our team of Agile experts, the AAMM evaluates your organization across a variety of dimensions and levels to determine what stage of maturity you fall under in the critical areas of your business.

“The most fascinating fact about Agile to me is that it is much more than a methodology or host of frameworks. Agile is a mindset, a state of being, an attitude. At xScion, Agile is not only a service package, it’s the way of operation. One of xScion’s 8 values of the company, “Be present with your family, team, customer and community” goes hand-in-hand with most of the Agile Manifesto Principles.”
