Today, financial institutions operate in a dynamic environment that is more complex and competitive than ever before. The stable and predictable environment of the past decades modifies to a digitized future with new rules for market participants. The continuous transformation of the competitive landscape and customer behavior requires new business models with much faster change cycles.

In order to survive in such a landscape, it has become increasingly important for global banks and insurance companies to deal with Scaled Agile methodologies. At Deloitte, we accompany diverse financial institutions on daily basis in their Agile and Digital Transformation. We know the challenges of using agile methods, especially scaled approaches.

Within 90 minutes, we aim to create basic insights and awareness of the audience in regards to the (evolving) relevance of Scaled Agile methodologies, present our view on the current stage of Scaled Agile at financial institutions and share some of our practical experiences from our daily work for the successful implementation and application of agile methodologies.
