Becoming agile is a journey, which can be difficult to travel. The Agile Self-Assessment game is there for you to self-assess how agile you are and smoothly and successfully travel your agile journey. I provide many services for assessing your agility and can help you to increase delivered value.

After deciding why you want to become agile you start looking for ways how to get there. Questions like “what do you want to keep from your current way of working” and “what would you like to change” will come up. Then the next question is “what are ways to do this”.

There isn’t a silver bullet or standard route to become agile, you have to find your own way.  A fixed route description won’t help you. You need an “agile map” that inspires you with ideas and a guide which provides suggestions on where to go next on your journey.
