Agile Executive Breakfast: Johannesburg
07:30 - 09:30 SAST (UTC / GMT +2 hours)
Once considered a fad, agile has matured outside of software development and IT into sectors like banking, management consulting, automotive manufacturing, and healthcare. According to Forrester Research, Inc., 40% of development projects now use agile methods — a number that’s doubled since 2013 — and Accenture finds that high-performing organizations are six times more likely to have adopted agile methodologies.
Companies are moving to agile methods because the application economy demands it: disruption and competition require a faster cadence for bringing products to market that better reflect their customers’ needs. Agile approaches offer faster delivery, higher quality, and an engaged development team that can deliver on its commitments.
Join us for a discussion about how agile approaches can help your company see 4X improvements. Agile coaches from DVT and CA Technologies will examine the challenges and benefits of agile, with insights from organisations around the globe who have adopted agile and seen remarkable business results.
