Agile Transformation by Wemanity

 

 

Agile has matured, it is not a trend anymore. Both technology and society change in a pace never seen before. To keep up with the fast changes, the business world needs to be more responsive than ever. It's about allround responsiveness, in services, possibilities, actions, security, IT. This means corporate agility is a necessity.

 

Wemanity provides a complete range of Agile services with a strong focus on corporate Agile Transformations. Our own framework, the Integrated Agile Transformation Model© is a best practice of over 20 years of experience in Agile Transformations. Led by Agile Manifesto author Arie van Bennekum, our change agents work with the client on one shared goal: having the teams work in an autonomous way, with a sustainable Agile attitude of continuous learning and continuous improvement.
