The Energy factor - becoming a lean, agile, network organization
Hear how we transformed Accenture’s Cloud and Software Engineering practice to a lean, agile, network organization.
Agility is finally where it is supposed to be: In business instead of „just“ in IT. Companies have realized that there is a need to change fundamentally, i.e. to set themselves up to produce innovation constantly and not as “one-off” initiative. The market demands organizations that are lean, adaptable and ready to change, whenever the market demands. But how do you become such an organization? How do you set up your organization, talent and leadership to achieve that? How do you shift the mindset and culture of an organization so that IT and Business are working together?
We will not only discuss with you what we see happening in the market and what other companies do to become such lean, agile companies. But we will tell you about our very own journey and what we did to transform ourselves and our culture from a “traditional” organization to a lean, network-based organization, with new principles, new leadership approaches and, effectively, a different culture.
