Discover the benefits of Agile transformation to help companies meet the challenges of 2021
In 2020, businesses faced one of their biggest enemies – uncertainty. In the case of agile organizations, they have been able to react more quickly to adapt to changes and they have succeeded in a scenario that we cannot predict. But what awaits us in this news 2021? In a VUCA environment, critical behaviors are collaboration, empowerment, a sense of belonging and managing diversity in its broadest sense. And it’s all part of the Agile philosophy that becomes so, in response to the challenges posed by the new year.
But what benefits does Agile transformation bring? According to Flavio Leomil, organizer of the Agile Trends and Agile & DevOps Festival of Santander Corporativo, they are the following:
Focus on the people. Collaborative and multidisciplinary work places talent on processes and organizational charts. Empowerment and motivation. Collaborative work, fluid communication and fair participation of all team members generate autonomy, transparency and accountability among all team members, which empowers and motivates employees. The continuous review model makes it possible to adapt to change faster and more efficiently, finding solutions in the process that minimize the risk of failure. Agile transformation provides a flexible structure that helps deliver versions of projects or services with shorter lead times. Proximity with the customer allows to have a better knowledge of them, bringing a differential added value and generating cost savings.
