Introducing the Agile Performance Holarchy®

The Agile Performance Holarchy (APH) is a best-practices performance model designed to help agile leaders and organizations successfully deploy, sustain, and evaluate large-scale agile.

The result of research with hundreds of agile organizations, the APH provides technology leaders with the guidance to model, evaluate, and improve agile performance with a clearly defined set of objectives, outcomes, and actions organized by performance level, and guide-rails for most popular agile ceremonies and techniques.

The APH includes: Performance Circles, Holons, Objectives, Actions, and Ceremonies/Techniques.

Organizations can now benchmark Agile performance at three performance levels:  Adopting, Transforming, and Mastering. Achievements can be publicly recognized with a certification listed on AgileCxO’s Certified Organizations site.

The Agile Performance Holarchy is not a process, and does not replace agile frameworks like Scrum, XP, LeSS, DAD, or SAFe, but strengthens them by aligning leadership practices with Agile Best Practice behaviors.  The APH is also backwardly compatible with ISO 9001 and CMMI V2.0 Development, providing a path for Agile organizations wishing to expand their business with government and large corporate customers.

Leaders will use the Objectives, Actions, and Outcomes within the APH for clear guidance when evaluating and improving agile performance, and to lead teams to a resilient and scalable agile future.
