The Center for Enterprise Human Resource Information Services, or CEHRIS, provides modern HR technology and tools to support those who care for our nation’s 19 million veterans.
CEHRIS is a new office with a powerful mission and a difficult organizational challenge. The team is responsible for modernizing HR technology, tools, and data for the VA’s 300,000+ employees. Yet without direct budget authority, they faced shifting priorities and budget questions with staff and service providers caught in the middle. Agility, efficiency, and leadership development were the goals – with little definition around when or how it could be done.
Sprightbulb teamed with the CEHRIS team to provide a full spectrum of Agile services – including training, leadership development, facilitation, and coaching – to help the new center align around the most pressing needs, and then move forward. The coaches created and aligned program backlogs and processes, facilitated team offsites, and helped CEHRIS create a leadership development program for new staff.
Agile and Scrum are business-as-usual at CEHRIS. Contractor team alignment is at an all-time high and program managers are focused on the outcomes of their projects, not the internal challenges of a newly formed team.
