Our Collaborative Approach to Enterprise Agility

Enterprise Service Design and Orchestration

Enterprise Service Design and Orchestration engages the complex problems inherent in large IT organizations composed of adaptive teams. Rather than homogenize the practices of teams, we design negotiable, evolving boundary practices in the spaces between teams, enabling deep heterogeneous practices to exist in context.

OpsFlow

OpsFlow techniques create flow across the desired value chain and align organizations to the nature of their work. PraxisFlow focuses on how work flows through and among teams, silos, and divisions. We firmly believe that an innovative environment is possible only when flows accommodate and support multiple management styles simultaneously.

Sustained Organizational Transition Design and Enablement

How can an organization implement that design and strategy, seamlessly moving from the current state to the desired state with minimal disruption to workflows and the customer experience? PraxisFlow co-designs implementation with clients, helping them understand how to the do the work better and then sustain those improvements over time.
