The advanced analytical methods used in AI are having a profound impact on many business areas such as sales (recommendation systems, predicting churn), pricing (flexible, just in time pricing), HR (matching applications to job postings).
But what about decision making and decision support at an enterprise level, such as setting targets, managing innovation portfolios and assigning budgets and workforce to them?
Because of their future-oriented character, these areas typically lack the historical data which is necessary to apply advanced analytical techniques successfully.
In this meetup, we will investigate the state-of-the art regarding these topics. We will evaluate the utility of using business simulations together with reinforcement learning to automate enterprise decision support. The event will start with an online presentation on Zoom – we will then open up a "virtual coffee lounge" with a video share and online whiteboard for post meetup discussions.
Coordinating the work of agile teams can be very challenging: Teams are often distributed all over the world and are working in different time zones.
This is compounded by the pandemic, because everyone is working in a different, isolated environment, thus posing extra challenges to collaboration.
To support agility in such challenging times, we need easy-to-use, collaborative and integrated tools that support the entire agile journey. In this meetup we will discuss the tools we use in our agile transformation projects and the best practices we have established:
* Ideation and design * Enterprise Architecture * Business analysis, process design and requirements engineering * Project portfolio management * Transformation management * Software development and CI/CD pipelines
