"We shape and support dynamic change with digestible morsels."

Denise Pellet

Managing Consultant

"What is important during the agile transformation is the further development of agile best practices for teams and the reduction of dependencies in the organization. Business agility can only be achieved in this manner."

The road to an agile organization

What exactly distinguishes agile enterprises? A command of agile, rather procedural methods, practices and scenarios certainly provides the required basis. Building on this, "soft" aspects such as values, principles and mindsets should be internalized. Management, leadership and culture must undergo radical change on the road to the lean agile enterprise. Far from being achieved overnight, this demands a much more structured, gradual approach.

Scaling agility across the enterprise

Agile forms of working are employed today in practically every Swiss company. Some of these are currently taking their first steps in scaling agility across the entire enterprise. What has become evident during this process is that embedding an agile corporate culture in all levels of an organization represents a Herculean task. In particular, the change from a classic management style to servant leadership takes time and needs to be driven as rigorously as the establishment of a new control model based on lean and agile principles. How can this transformation be tackled in practical terms, and what are the most significant milestones on the road to a lean agile enterprise?

Finding the right partner in a public procurement through greater agility

E-Paper (2021/05)


The implementation of new digitalisation projects in public administration is complex in nature and increasingly involves agile project methods.
