Potential Leveraged Through Agile Processes
...automating the routine to provide time for innovation

Processes provide the means by which your people can work together efficiently to deliver in combination what would be impossible for them in isolation. Processes are the basis of organisation: they provide the means for co-ordination; they are a practical repository for experience; they replicate effective patterns; and they stimulate consistency and learning.
But they can also, if not designed intelligently, stifle creativity, suppress potential and block insight. And poorly designed processes have been getting a very bad press - to the extent of some people reflecting that processes per-se are 'bad' and attempting to avoid processes altogether.
Agile processes provide the basis for achieving all processes are good at, but with a flexibility that inspires creativity, drives insight and harnesses potential … They deliver the routine and demand vitality - doing what they are good at and empowering people to do likewise …
Tesseract's approach is to use QFD to explore the potential of each process to deliver the vision and goals of the organisation. QFD provides a means for people to take responsibility for delivering the objectives through their process routines, and through considering new and innovative ways in which they can do this. And QFD helps co-ordinate the process teams efforts, organising their co-operation and communication to ensure the goals are met.
In 'Process' we look at some of these concepts in more depth, we look at the 'principles' that underpin the approach and we look at the tools that support progress in it.
