“At its root, Scrum is based on a simple idea: whenever you start a project, why not regularly check in, see if what you’re doing is heading in the right direction, and if it’s actually what people want? And question whether there are any ways to improve how you’re doing what you’re doing, any ways of doing it better and faster, and what might be keeping you from doing that”
– Jeff Sutherland
Teams in the 21st Century: Why agile?
We believe that today’s fast-paced business world is based on knowledge, innovation and education. The core value creation of each organization is rooted in their teams, ideas and products. In factories, individuals made ‘pins’. In today’s service economy, teams outsmart individuals. The core ingredients for a successful company in the 21st century are smart teams that work together smoothly and create synergies. Teams that inspire and push the team members to transcend their limitations and deliver the best product possible.
We believe agile means ‘flexibility’. Every company has unique challenges and strengths. There is no one magic ‘formula’ for team management or agile transformation. Successful team management is rooted in your company culture and mindset. When you start improving communication, transparency, empowerment and compassion your team will automatically become smarter, faster and more innovative. Your teams will develop the flexibility to adapt in an environment of constant changes in markets, customer behavior and technology. Becoming agile means becoming flexible to thrive in whatever circumstances are given to you. Team management is a combination of clearly defined desired behaviors, lean standard procedures and open communication for you, your team and your organization.
