ABOUT YES AND WHY

Who We Are

We are experts in agile transitions, systemic approaches to organizational change, psychology, and management consulting. 

For the last ten years, we have supported companies in over a dozen industries with Agile transitions in key roles and responsibilities. We also have a combined 50 years of experience in:

  • Business Coaching
  • Agile Coaching
  • Organizational development
  • Training and Training design

In the past, we have experienced that the usual financial controlling systems do not mesh well with agile transitions. So we developed a new framework and implemented it with our customers. 

Set up an appointment and feel confident knowing your business is capable of handling whatever the future throws your way.

What We Do

01.

To start off, we’ll define your most painful challenges together. From here, we implement the first set of agile practices covering focus and prioritization.

02.

We’ll train, teach and coach your company through the process of incremental changes within the most painful area and work iteratively to help your business transition smoothly.

Part of any agile transition involves inspecting and adapting. We’ll regularly check results and make changes as needed.

Finally, we’ll help your business build momentum towards a more agile and productive future.
