RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gear Stream Inc., a leading business agility and digital innovation firm, today announced the launch of Surge™. Surge is for enterprise companies seeking to rediscover their inner startup, and for startups seeking to retain agility as they grow quickly. The Surge platform provides powerful performance management tools for eliminating burdensome departmental boundaries while fostering flexible, high performance teams. Surge enables business, IT, and operations teams to collaborate at radically improved speed, efficiency, and agility.
The Surge platform equips leaders and managers with tools for transitioning to new roles and styles of leadership proven to drive digital innovation and speed. Managers move away from micromanaging the work of employees, and move towards active facilitation of high-performance digital business and technology teams. Surge provides managers with new tools for executing agile portfolio management, agile teaming, and lean, develops execution. Blending flexible high performance teaming models, "just enough" lean work management controls and social collaboration networks, Surge avoids the implementation risk and decreased organizational agility associated with today's overly complex Agile scaling frameworks.
According to Gear Stream Founder and CEO Brad Murphy, most large companies are struggling to foster the required mindset, company culture, and rapid execution teaming competencies essential to digital brand leadership. Decades of long-range planning and annual targets have hardened a set of norms that place companies at risk when seeking new ways to transition and sustain leadership in the digital space. Leveraging Surge, leaders and managers emerge as strategic architects and facilitators of continuous improvement and digital innovation while team creativity and productivity accelerate.
"In just 90 days we see material change start to emerge," Murphy said. "Typically by month six, sustainable delivery and operational performance improvements can be measured that are meaningful to corporate leaders and attributed to the shift occurring as a result of Surge including: improvements to business agility; customer experience; employee engagement; delivery cycle time, product quality, team productivity, and transparency across all teams and the entire digital/IT portfolio of work."
