In recent times, more and more companies have begun to embrace agile principles, seeing merit in its processes.

As the name would suggest, agile, is a methodology that allows companies and teams to pivot and adapt to new circumstances. 

Some of the proposed benefits of adopting an agile approach include:

1. Smaller, faster failures and an increase on ROI

2. Products that are quicker to market

3. Stakeholder satisfaction

4. Happier employees

5. Greater organisational transparency

6. Reduced costs

A lot of these benefits sound very useful in the situation we find ourselves in, circumstances that have given agile practitioners ample opportunity to adapt and overcome unforeseen challenges.

 In this event, we’ll ask agile experts from ENGINE and Zuhlke to share their experiences of working in agile teams during a crisis.

 Join us and find out:

  • Have agile principles helped companies to adapt
  • If so, how?
  • What can companies learn and adopt in their own organisations?
  • Can adopting agile principles help companies looking to recover from the current restrictions?
