Within ČSOB we are starting to launch a smart agile transformation. Why smart? Because we want to do it smartly – it means doing that where it makes sense and has added value. However, so far we are relatively at the beginning, because we have only started the agile transformation in January this year. Where we’ve gotten so far, that will come to tell you:
Bohdan Suchánek – Bohdan is the head of Digital Design at ČSOB and will share with you a business perspective on agile transformation; Luděk Šlegr – the head of ČSOB’s IT – will share with you a view on agile transformation from the IT side, and the third musketeer will be Marek Adamec, head of Projects and Architecture, who will share his experience with you from the perspective of project managers and the Agile Competence Center.
