At PA we don’t just believe in making a difference. We believe in making the difference.

Agile 2016

Pragmatism as a substitute for hard work?

Most organizations adopting Agile ways of working want the gain without the pain. They look to minimize organizational change, find ways to compromise and yet still expect to realize the benefits others have achieved through taking more radical action.

I've played leading roles in some Agile disasters where pragmatism was used as an excuse to avoid tackling difficult challenges. I’d like to share some of that experience with you in the hope that you’ll see the warning signs and be able to correct your course before disaster strikes.

The Agile organization

Why financial service providers need to adopt organization-wide Agile ways of working.

Markets are globalizing, eco-systems are expanding and digitalization and technological development are increasingly important in securing competitive advantage. Disruptive competitors and new international entrants are challenging traditional players and forcing changes to the market at an incredible speed.
