Steve Holyer gives you 5 tools that you can use to assess the System

The 5 tools that you can use to assess the system are:

  1. Agile Fluency model: a model to assess the development of the teams you work with. To know more, check out AgileFluencyImmersion.com, a workshop that helps you and your teams learn how to achieve better results.
  2. Strategy Maps: A diagram that creates clarity on what are the defined, but also real goals for an organization.
  3. Design your coaching alliance: A method to help you, as a Scrum Master, understand what are the goals for your work with the teams, and to anchor your work on a clear vision and outcome.
  4. Impact Mapping: a method to help you discover and understand what are the high-value work items (User Stories or Features) for your teams to work on. This tool alone will have a great impact on your work with Product Owners.
  5. Value Stream Mapping: A way to analyse how the work is completed in an organization. Following the work from start to completion and creating a Value Stream Map of that work will give you insights into what are the impediments to value creation in your organization.
