Discussion Forum - "Partnering for Agile - Myths and Truths" - Thursday, October 26, 2017
Enterprises of all sizes from all industry sectors are shifting increasingly towards a more Agile way of working in response to the digital disruption in our business environment. Both clients and their partners must constantly deliver what is or will be valued by their critical stakeholders, end customers, employees, and other ecosystem partners, to maintain both market relevance and fiscal viability. This session will focus on exploring:
- Typical challenges that surface when outsourced programs need to be delivered in Agile
- Does Agile really work with globally distributed teams?
- How do client-vendor relationships need to adapt in response to this age of exponential change?
