Agile process optimisation

What is agile process optimisation?

Agile Process Optimisation (APO) is a process model developed by KEY VALUES that combines the advantages of agile working with systematic process optimisation. An interdisciplinary team identifies the main weak points together and immediately develops adequate solutions in iterative development loops, which are then tested and implemented directly. After just a few days, productivity is increased and duplication of work, waiting time and interface problems are reduced. APO is particularly interesting for medium-sized companies that need quick effects and want to sustainably increase their process quality on this basis.

Agile process optimisation is part of our KEY VALUES Agile Circle – a “scalable infrastructure” that develops competences in a targeted and needs-oriented way and in which appreciation, individual learning and value propositions are thought of in a new and different way and implemented in a concrete way.

What does agile process optimisation entail?

At APO, your team works on the biggest weaknesses in agile sprints and according to priority, supported by experienced process facilitators. The team works in a self-organised way and has the mandate to immediately improve unproductive processes:
Streamlining, digitising routine processes, eliminating extra work, waste and waiting times.

What are the advantages of agile process optimisation?

Compared to conventional process redesigns and step-by-step process optimisation, the value-creating effects become visible and realisable in the short term. This makes it easier for the team not only to commit to changes, but also to push them forward with conviction. The effectiveness is thus much higher than with process projects that last for years and are characterised more by meetings than by concrete progress. APO has the following advantages in this context, among others:

  • Faster elimination of “process pain
  • Utilisation of productivity reserves
  • Direct process understanding and faster effectiveness
  • Targeted streamlining of work processes
  • Integrative approach with transparent teamwork
  • Immediate return on investment through time and budget savings
