What We Do
At NextParadigm, collaboration is etched in our DNA. We recognise that everyone has specific talents, knowledge and expertise that they bring to the table. Our consulting and coaching methods are underpinned by a highly collaborative approach that strives to bring out the best in your team.
Our offerings include:
Driving Business Agility
Organisational change is hard! The quest to become a digital-first organisation involves cultural, process and behavioural change.
Our approach to the Digital Transformation journey draws on the best practices of the digital community, with a particular focus on Service Design and Lean/Agile methods.
A solid foundation for your project
Enterprise software projects are complex undertakings that require the active involvement of stakeholders across the organisation.
Project Inception begins by ensuring that there is a shared understanding of the organisation's goals and the project's objectives, opportunities and constraints.
The deliverables of the Inception include a prioritised list of the business requirements, technical solution, project approach, roles and responsibilities, and time and cost estimates for the project.
Agile Operating Model
Innovation in the Enterprise
The genesis of the Agile Organisation is often a small software development team in the organisation trying an Agile project. The team typically has early success, but then quickly finds that it is frustrated by the lack of agility in the rest of the organisation - the team is, in effect, an "Agile Island".
At NextParadigm, we have extensive experience in helping businesses and government agencies adopt Agile thinking across the organisation. Our objective is to help you maximise flow and remove impediments to agility, so that business outcomes are delivered early and often, with a high level of quality.
Digital Service Standard (DSS)
Bringing Agility to Government Services
NextParadigm is a firm supporter of, and contributor to, the DTA's Service Design and Delivery approach, including the Digital Service Standard (DSS).
We provide coaching and consulting services to State and Federal Government Agencies, to assist with adoption of and adherence to the DSS. Our services range from training and coaching teams that are adopting the DSS for the first time, through to assessing in-flight projects against the DSS.
Agile for Leaders
Agility is a mindset, not a methodology.
At NextParadigm, we understand that not everyone wants, or needs, to be a Scrum Master - the benefits of Agile and Lean are available to the whole organisation, not just software developers.
Agile for Leaders is a one-day workshop for anyone who wants to learn how to incorporate agile and lean thinking into their, and their team's, daily work practice.
For Individuals and Teams
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
At NextParadigm, our prime objective is to help people who are 'in the work' to elevate their individual and team's performance to the next level.
