Five years ago, Betteke van Ruler launched her book Reflective Communication Scrum, which unleashed a bunch of energy to approach our work differently in communication. Today quite a few communication professionals work in an agile way completing projects and going concern tasks. Time to take stock. What works and what doesn’t when applying agile to communication? Some pressing questions in this regard are bundled in a white paper, reflecting the opinion of professionals working with agile in this field from the beginning.
In this event, the white paper is launched by Mariëtte Pasman (communication RIVM & board member Logeion) and the main findings in it are shared by Marlous Mooij (Independent project manager) and Mariëlle Roozemond (Agile marcom coach & lecturer).
The host organization of our evening will give a heads up on how the communication team applies agile in their work processes. Once we have full confirmation, more details on this talk will follow.
We are happy to close the evening with a talk of one of the co-authors of the Agile Manifesto; Arie van Bennekum (thought leader Wemanity). He always claimed that the manifesto was written for those wanting to uncover better ways to do any kind of complex project work, including non-IT. Seeing the rise of Agile in different domains has strengthened this conviction. He points to principles and practices that any creative worker can use in today’s fast paced workplace.
