Workshop Day (23 Sep)

Agility is a hot topic in the business world and far beyond. At first sight, it seems that embracing agility can be reached by a simple and straightforward matter of following a new set of principles––such as innovation, openness, and empowerment––and implementing a new structure, based on self-organised teams and cross-functional collaboration. At least, this is the impression that appears when you follow the success stories of agility that circulate in all major media.
What the team at Deutsche Telekom soon realised after starting their own Agile Journey, was that the hype of agility often overshadows various issues, tensions and hurdles that come up when transforming a traditional organisation into an agile one. Therefore, they had to find a new creative way of implementing agility into their company.
The aim of this workshop is to provide you with more insights into Deutsche Telekom’s agile journey and take a closer look at the agile transformation the sub-company T-Systems International is undergoing right now, ultimately enabling you to take your next steps into the agile journey with more confidence.
You will learn about:
- The truth behind the scenes: the hurdles and challenges of Deutsche Telekom’s agile journey
- Practical implementation and best practice methods to take home and apply to your own business
- An understanding of the T-Systems self-enabling approach by creating an agile hub and building a company-wide language
- Exercises to exchange with peers and reflect on your own next steps to becoming truly agile
