“Leveraging Agile in a Virtual Environment”
Disruption is a constant in today’s world, and never more so than during the Covid-19 pandemic. The challenges we face keep evolving as we seek to adapt our way of working & thinking. Our weekly webinar will focus on how to leverage an Agile approach within our new virtual work environment.
Agile is a mind-set that empowers employers and employees by creating high performing teams. The Agile way of working delivers many benefits, such as increased customer satisfaction, faster time to market, greater innovation and increased employee engagement. It was originally focused on software development, but has now been proven as a more general approach that applies to teams across diverse organisations.
Thankfully, we are blessed with the availability of great collaboration tools, allowing us to work anywhere & anytime. Being virtual is not only about video calls. It is more efficient to minimise the number of calls and make use of Kanban boards, chats and file sharing for example. Our own teams in Aspira have optimised our agile collaboration through Microsoft Teams along with Mentimeter to engage our audience during our ongoing Webinar Series and various other client presentations. That form of audience participation and interaction in itself comes about as a result of an Agile mind-set.
Traditionally, a team has a vision, a goal and some initiatives to achieve those goals over a fixed period of time. But this approach may not be responsive enough in these unprecedented and uncertain times, so instead it’s worth embracing an agile mind-set. This helps us to formulate initiatives in a flexible, iterative way, thanks to continuous feedback and reflection.
Given the current changes & challenges across the traditional world of work towards remote working, we will look at how an Agile approach allows us to be productive & innovative. We will explore how to embrace new know-how, and add innovative techniques and processes to your routine.
