Report from the trenches: How an Agile CoE Adds Value to a Big Organization

Link visible for attendees

Let’s have a dialogue with somebody working hard to create a team of coaches and show their "value-added" in an organization of 80K+ people with a big goal to create a more dynamic way of working and an ambitious digital ecosystem.
During this presentation, you will learn how agile books are useful; however, any book can teach you how to tackle real problems in big organizations. You will need more than reading books to learn the best way to reach the current maturity level of a traditional organization and move from there with a clear north star.
At the end of our conversation, your takeaway will be:

  1. You can work, learn, and get fun at the same time
  2. 2-3 tips to apply tomorrow in your organization or your next job
  3. 2-3 tools to use with your teams to show the real value of your work
