Agile Innovation Beyond Software
August 5 @ 18:00 - 19:30 CDT
Agile innovation can help companies exploit current capabilities, as well as explore new opportunities. Agile ways of working, widely adopted for software, can also be applied beyond software to differentiate a company from competitors. Agile began outside IT, and has been used successfully across a wide range of industries, products, and projects. This presentation provides non-software agile examples, identifies conditions for agile success beyond software, and explores the promise of agile enterprises. The presentation also provides tips, guidance and references for applying agile innovation beyond software.
