As customers continue to buy more digital products, software companies need to quickly adjust their products to an ever-changing landscape in order to stay competitive. Product and development teams need systems that react quickly to improvements and progress in their markets.
In a survey from ThoughtWorks, a massive 61% of respondents reported that one of their greatest company challenges was adapting to new changes in the industry.
Agile does just that – it helps you release features that perform well and meet your customers’ evolving needs. You can be flexible enough to build software that’s totally up to date with market trends, rather than several months out of date.
Yet as your company grows, being agile and adaptable becomes harder and harder to achieve, with more teams to mobilise and more communication to manage. As an expanding company, you need a thoughtful, impactful, and streamlined way to encourage agile adoption across your teams and people.
There are many ways to do agile at scale, as well as consultants, certifications, and tools to help you do it. So how do you choose the approach which will best work for you and your company?
That’s exactly what we’ll be discussing at our next Meetup:
Wednesday 18th April 2018
CodeNode, 10 South Pl, London, EC2M 2RB
18:00 – 20:30 (with drinks after)
Join us as we:
- Analyse the pros and cons of the top-down and bottom-up approaches to scaling agile
- Hear the first-hand experience of companies that have successfully scaled their agile methods, like Moonpig and Société Générale.
I’d love to see you there!
