Avaloq AG offers Agile training and XSCALE certification courses in co-operation with finaplana AG
Avaloq AG (Avaloq) and finaplana AG (finaplana) announce a co-operation to bring advanced Agile training and certification, including the XSCALE framework for Organisational Agility, to the Swiss market.
“Agile” is a philosophy about managing and accepting change and finding ways to create value sooner and minimise waste. Thats why at finaplana AG, we say Agile is “Quicker, Cheaper and Better”.
By adopting Agile principles and practices, you can improve team performance, increase business agility and achieve product management excellence.
Avaloq is a leader in core banking software and digital technology and a provider of software as a service (SaaS) and business process as a service (BPaaS) solutions for banks and wealth managers. Over 150 customers trust Avaloq with USD 4 trillion in assets managed with their software.
In a volatile, rapidly changing world, banks need to be fast on their feet and quick to grasp fresh opportunities and respond to new challenges and competitors. You need solutions that are simple to implement and grow, easily adapted to your operating model and flexible enough to support new products, new banking entities and even wholly new business models.
For Avaloq, it’s about giving you exceptional flexibility, while keeping operational costs to the absolute minimum. It’s a tall order, but that’s what Avaloq does best and they relish the challenge.
At finaplana, we specialise in helping you transform your organisation to maximise business success.
Business agility refers to distinct qualities that allow organisations to respond rapidly to changes in the internal and external environment without losing momentum or vision.
“Agile” is neither a methodology nor a toolset, it is a philosophy for creating products and developing high performing teams.
Our coaching, training and certification are based on the industry leading XSCALE framework for Organisational Agility. Our Coaching services help your teams to reach peak performance by enhancing their skills and polishing your personalised implementation of Agile principles and practices.
The XSCALE Alliance is an open ecosystem for the development of Agile Organizations and for Business Agile training and coaching. Training in XSCALE agility patterns will provide you with a language that coordinates the acceleration of self-organizing teams in self-managing streams, and aligns these to focus on opening the bottleneck, which is the key constraint that stands in the way of exponential business throughput.
XSCALE is an acronym for the principles of an Agile Organization.
eXponential Return – increasing the rate of return on investment
Simple Design – the elegance of the minimum
Continuous Throughput – eliminating waste, stress and irregularity
Autonomous Teams – maximising productivity
Learning: triple loop – remaining competitive
Ecosystems Thinking – choosing the right decisions
XSCALE was developed as a set of best practice patterns for Agile organizations focused on exponential growth. As a method for 3rd Generation Agile, XSCALE extends the Agile Manifesto principles to Product Leadership, Portfolio Leadership, Company Culture Leadership and decision making within the organization.
XSCALE practices are fully compatible with SAFe, LeSS, Nexus and DAD, and have been applied successfully at scale as a standalone method of generating completely Agile Organisations.
Introduction to Agile
The Introduction to Agile course is a 1 day condensed, pragmatic, experience-based introduction into the history and practice of “Agile” which can be taken as standalone course and which also leads into our other XSCALE Certification courses.
As an introduction to the XSCALE pattern languages, Introduction to Agile also provides the key terminology and concepts that lead toward a mastery of team performance, business agility and product management excellence.
Introduction to Agile is about the five questions …
- What do we mean by “Agile” and what is (and isn’t) it?
- What are the benefits of moving to a more agile way of thinking and acting?
- What are the main agile methodologies and what do they offer?
- How can Scrum and Kanban help teams be more effective?
- How to effectively address the issue of Technical Debt?
… that will kick-start your Agile journey.
XSCALE Training and Certification
finaplana AG offers training in three XSCALE practice pattern languages, for which certification is issued by the XSCALE Alliance:
- XSCALE Agile Performance Practitioner (XAPP), which is both a fast start for new Feature delivery teams and a productivity supercharger for vanilla Scrums, providing hands-on guidance in best practices of XP, Kanban, Scrum, BDD and CICD.
- XSCALE Product Management Practitioner (XPMP), which aligns tech, design and business leaders, breadth-first, into a team of peers who iteratively convert their business drivers and constraints into maximum impact product backlogs.
- XSCALE Business Agility Practitioner (XBAP), which generates self-managing value streams by integrating Product, Feature and Systems teams hand-in-glove, continuously prioritising bottlenecks to dramatically accelerate top-line business throughput.
