“The way in which people deliver agile methodologies is like how we built software twenty years ago: big frameworks, slow feedback, and long release cycles.” -Jurgen Appelo

How does it make sense that “being Agile” should start with 3 – 6 months of implementation or more before you see any results? How can “Agile” frameworks and best practices require such massive commitments before they’ve proven their worth in your organisation, for your people and whether they add value for your clients?

Scrum, Holacracy, Management 3.0, SAFe and many others are the brainchild of individuals who have found the described methodologies useful and expanded them over time. That does not make every aspect of them useful for your context – no matter how valid the underlying principles may be.

“Perfection is easier attained through pragmatism than through perfectionism.” -Mark Poppenborg

We focus on validating what solutions work for you in a real life setting instead of preaching about which dogmatisms are right and wrong. Because Agile frameworks don’t add value – working solutions add value.

topdog innovation enables your organisation to make change happen step by step – without overwhelming everyone involved and everything affected by forcing you to stand on one leg for months at a time. We do this by by setting up “innovation labs” within the status quo and applying Lean Startup methodology not only to product development but to organisational processes and working models.


Validate which changes work for you within a week and implement only those that do. We’ll be happy to show you how: Our services are available as workshops, change programs or keynotes – let us know what you’re ready for and we’ll start there!
