“Every business is a software business now. Agility isn’t an option, or a thing just for teams, it is a business imperative. But we struggle building big systems” – With this sentence Dean Leffingwell makes clear that Digital Transformation is not feasible without scaled agile approaches. In addition, we need to understand that changes will never be this slow again and need start thinking exponentially. This means that with every new invention, such as quantum computing, we have to deal with an unexpected number of changes. The financial companies must prepare themselves for the future and scaled agile approaches give them this flexibility.
During our interactive presentation we will address the following agenda:
- Getting an understanding of the phases of a digital transformation journey
- Learn practical examples of how digitization projects have been carried out
- How does the agile way of working supports a digitization strategy
- How to scale up a digitization strategy
