About this Case Study
Agile is now taking the business world by storm, and if you are not looking at implementing it across your entire business, as a philosophy as well as a toolkit, you are about to be left behind!
It is no longer just for your software development team.
I have been working in marketing and business development for many years. Working across departments in busy, growing businesses can be extremely demanding. So how do you make life easier whilst still being efficient and keeping to your high standards? How do you continue to bring business value?
You adopt agile!
In my session I will discuss my experience of implementing agile into a reluctant sales and marketing department at an e-commerce company. We will then follow my journey to a software development company - which, as we all know, is the home of agile.
I have been part of teams that have successfully implemented agile into many departments, including marketing, sales, business development, admin and recruitment.
I want to share some success stories and some failures - as we all know, there is no failure, only feedback.
I will also touch on how my experience as an NLP Master Practitioner has complimented my agile journey.
Hopefully, by the end of the session, you will be inspired to take the next step in your agile journey.
