Agile Comes with a Responsibility for Sustainability: Are You Aware of it?

Download to read offline

Agility and sustainability are intertwined and define more and more the success factor for every company: For finding and keeping both clients as well as talent.

Have you ever wondered about the responsibility that comes with “being agile”? If you, your team, or your organization claim to be agile people expect you, for example, to embrace diversity & inclusion, to satisfy your customers without any bias, and even to protect your environment. In this session, I want to broaden our horizon on having a more holistic perspective on our responsibility for sustainability that comes with being agile. I will share both ideas about possibilities and examples from companies who make already an effort in implementing this holistic perspective. Thus, this session is about raising the awareness of our contribution to more sustainability and understanding how the principles of the agile manifesto can be leveraged to change our actions.
