Transforming into an Agile company

Publish date:

Companies want to move quicker from strategic thinking to development and roll out of ideas, offers and services. How can Agile transformation enable this perpetual state of evolution.

Technology is not new as a disruptive force – but it is accelerating change like never before today. Every single service is accessed digitally, in real time by the customer.

To do so and stay competitive while meeting changing customers’ expectations, companies are moving towards Agile transformation which is
now a competitive lever to:

  • Help business & IT to be more customer centric.
  • Break with the rigid long-term plans & improve IT project quality and efficiency: Large V-cycle programs are often risky and costly. They are risky because they take time to deliver and often meet partially their versatile objectives. Agile approaches enable teams to reduce costs by 15 to 20% with less documentation, faster collaboration, better integration and earlier detection of defects. The split of large programs into smaller synchronized projects which are more likely to succeed and stopped when needed, prevents major failures.
  • Strengthen company’s attraction: adopting agility in its culture is an effective way to better attract digital experts (Big Data, IA, UX and UI designers, Scrum masters, Devops…). and retain employees.

But the objective of an agile transformation is not turning a traditional company into a digital pure player but transform the way the company
innovates and delivers products and services, to face its challenges in the digital market, in accordance with the company’s DNA.
