– First principle of the agile manifesto | https://agilemanifesto.org/
We are a self-organised network in which the sum is more than our parts. The value makers balance and enhance what each has to offer thanks to their different focal areas. However, we all share one thing in common: an eye for systemic interrelationships, extensive professional experience and our fascination for change.
Werte-Macher Boris is an expert in IT infrastructure, project management, agile product development and transforming organisations towards true business agility. Over the course of 20 years, he has gained experience in the automotive industry as well as the banking, insurance, healthcare and public sectors.
In Boris’ experience, an agile and lean approach together with optimising value streams and a systematic approach are essential for achieving a successful organisational transformation. These are the foundations for creating true business agility. His personal tip: “Beware of trying to define transformation as a project because transformation is an ongoing journey”.
Michael was a manager in IT departments and at IT service providers for over 30 years. During this time he worked in different roles from team leader to managing director. In these different roles, he was often involved in transformation projects. His conclusion:” The desire for a new methodology or new tools is always also the desire for change.” Unfortunately, this is overlooked far too often.
When introducing new IT techniques, it is natural to check whether the prerequisites are met. For transformations in non-technical topics, such a procedure is not yet a matter of course. Only a few companies determine whether the prerequisites are fulfilled before starting such transformations. If the prerequisites are not sufficiently clarified, the transformations usually become much more expensive and only marginally successful.
