Agility for Ops: Maximizing Efficiency & Adaptability of Non-IT Teams

However, when it comes to embodying these same tenets in volatile teams, such as operations, sales, accounting, and people & culture divisions, the approach will vary. How do we modify a concept initially engineered for software development, to fit teams that deal with client acquisition, checks and balances, and human resources? In this talk, Sheyinka will explain how to apply agile principles to maximize the adaptability, efficiency, and productivity of non-IT teams. Key takeaways include why non-IT teams should adopt agile ways of working, what working in an agile way looks like for non-IT teams, how to structure and plan operations tasks using an agile methodology, and five practical agile tips that you can implement within your operations team today.
