AGILE FOR BUSINESS

1 DAY INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP

 

MARKETS ARE CHANGING
 

Technologies are constantly changing, innovation cycles are shortening, new competitors are entering markets, and customers want to help shape the products they buy. In times of advancing digitalization as well as increasingly volatile and unpredictable markets, companies are stretched to their limits with their existing ways of working.

 

Becoming more Agile is the best way for companies to cope with these challenges.

Not just for the IT department but for the whole organization. An Agile mindset helps to innovate and deliver more customer-centric value.

“In some ways, Agile may be the best-kept management secret on the planet. It has been under way for over fifteen years. There are now hundreds of thousands of Agile practitioners around the world and tens of thousands of organizations implementing Agile. Yet many general managers know little about it.”

Steve Denning

 

THE WORKSHOP

The interactive workshop introduces the concept of Agile as well as hands-on methodologies as a concrete way for businesses to prepare for the future and to break out of bureaucratic habits. Based on our learnings from Agile pilots with FT Global 500 clients across different industries, we will share with you best practices of legacy organizations taking their first steps towards Agile.

 

You would benefit from this workshop if:

  • You want to bring your products, services and processes closer to the needs of users
  • You want to reduce your “time to market”
  • You are looking for a way out of your bureaucratic habits that are slowing you down
  • You want to introduce a culture of experimentation
  • You want to make your company more competitive in a business environment more dynamic than ever
