Our Point of Difference
We were formed in 2017, from a desire to broaden our reach beyond our corporate roles, to create positive change in the way teams and organisations work. In 2018, the core team got together with a change practitioner who noticed a gap in the Agile transformation market. Consultancies were simply not applying change management principles to Agile adoptions. In fact, many adoptions that were started with training/coaching in one area (e.g. Ways of Working), would neglect a systems approach that extended into other areas (e.g. Strategy, Product).
We lead with bleeding-edge visualisation techniques and facilitation skills. Organisations engage us over and over again to plan and deliver workshops because we can work a room and cut through to what’s important.
Today, we are a cross-functional team of 5 coaches, 2 of whom are PROSCI change management trained, with a combined experience of 60 years in Delivery, Change and Product Management. These combined strengths allow us to provide a holistic offering that is unmatched in APAC.
Delivery Process Review
Through 1-1 interviews, feedback workshops, attending and observing meetings, we will co-create an objective picture of your challenges and opportunities. Leveraging our experience with Delivery, a recommendations report and debrief is included.
We work directly with you and your stakeholders on all things strategy – from co-creating one to reviewing an existing strategy. We challenge your organisation with a two-pronged approach – balancing pragmatism with outside-the-box thinking.

Who we work with
A huge thanks to Teamworx and to Zhi and Tracey especially for such superb, responsive bespoke planning and facilitation of our strategic planning and team reflection morning via LEGO Serious Play. You were the perfect facilitators – so engaging, open, sparking of ideas, inclusive and amazing at packing all of our aims and tangible outcomes into the compressed session at the end of a rather challenging year. Our entire team found the LEGO Serious Play method allowed us to cut through the usual ‘noise’ of the day-to-day ‘normal’ discussions we usually have in typical strategic planning sessions. Instead, your targeted and purposeful activities enabled us to achieve much higher level, collaborative dialogue and planning in a really creative and fun manner to arrive at our shared vision for our ideal ‘future state’. We were all amazed by the power of the method and by your skills as facilitators. Thanks again.
Since April 2019 the Teamworx team have been helping the team here at Roche Products NZ with our own Agile Transformation. We chose Teamworx because of their passion, energy and enthusiasm plus a heap of knowledge and experience in the agile space, not too mention their commitment to the local community. So now it’s almost a year down the track and we’ve seen a real shift in the way we think and conduct our business. We have never felt closer and more engaged with patients – so important for a healthcare company – and we are far more willing to seek customer feedback rather than our own version of perfection. Our teams are more connected and proactive and there is a palpable buzz around the office. Thanks Zhi, Tracey and Ajay for helping us learn and apply agile thinking and methodologies to become a greater contributor to the NZ healthcare community.
Following initial 2 day introductory courses to Agile, Zhi at Teamworx successfully helped to support, coach and launch several internal project inceptions utilising the knowledge gained from the introductory courses.
With a flexible approach to our multi-disciplinary teams, Teamworx were able to rapidly stand up teams, support and generate engagement and provide just the right level of coaching to enable our teams to become self sufficient and self organising over a short period of time.
Engagement and output from our teams is high and we continue to roll out the practices learnt across the organisation as a result.
If you need to make positive change with your teams within your business I would thoroughly recommend Zhi and Teamworx.
I attended a Visual Facilitation workshop with some of my Watercare colleagues and leaders on Friday, hosted by the talented Zhi Lee. What a great day, loads of drawing, thinking and engagement. Thanks for the opportunity Watercare and for the learnings, Zhi. Here was one of my end creations, pretty cool!
Incredible day yesterday (Big room planning). Thanks so much, Ajay, for pulling this together for us, leading and facilitating over 100 people to pull together our value stream pipeline for Q2. Still buzzing from the day
The workshop that Zhi presented gave me an insight into the world of Agile and gave me a desire to learn more. His workshop was interactive, experiential and most of all, fun. Setting the intention at the beginning as to what I wanted to get out of the workshop helped to keep focus and reviewing at the end gave a sense of accomplishment. I recommend Zhi’s workshops to anyone who is interested in getting a taster to Agile and beyond.
2-day design sprint
Tracey created a wonderful atmosphere in the room that allowed the team to really open up and get creative. An incredible amount was achieved over 2 days! Tracey also shared great resources and information post the Sprint.
We asked Zhi to come in and run an introductory course on Agile: it’s principles, its manifestations and how to use it.
Wow, what an incredible amount of digestible information and practices all in a very limited timeframe.
Our team came away with a much deeper understanding of Agile and how to use it as well as some practical skills that we can readily use in our everyday work. The format of theory and practice meant the team could absorb new information then use it in the activity setting to embed the ideas and have a bunch of fun while we were doing it.
I would highly recommend Zhi. He was well-prepared, the information was very easy to understand and the pace of learning was perfect. His style of facilitation and teaching was excellent.
Thanks a lot.
Through their excellent facilitation of our strategy session, the gentlemen from Teamworx (Zhi & Ajay) enabled us to put on a page our strategy for the next 3-5 years. They made the distilling of knowledge and experience from dozens of team-members into a coherent, easily communicable message, seem easy. I wouldn’t hesitate to(and have) used their services again.
I really want to give A HUGE shout out to Zhi, Jamie, and the Team from Teamworx. Teamworx planned and ran a teambuilding day for us. From our first briefing meeting to the sessions, Zhi ensured everything was done to perfection. I recommend Teamworx without hesitation.

There are differing perspectives on “Definition of Ready”s. What is a Definition of Ready? These are a checklist to be ticked off before a team starts working on a piece of work. A Stage-Gate Process They are often seen as an anti-pattern to Agile because a long DOR becomes a stage-gate that hinders progress. Teams
Teamworx are now licensed to teach the iSQI Scrum Master Pro certification. Principal trainer, Zhi Lee, shares his review of the course. As someone who’s been teaching and practising Agile for more than 12 years, this course hit the nail on the head in areas that other accredited courses did not. In particular, it covers
