Breakfast with An Bakkes

The Business of Agile. 

We invite you to join us for a breakfast talk by An Bakkes on the topic of Agile.
Agile advocates adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change.

In today's world of work, Agile is often seen as either a Silver Bullet that is used to create business and IT problems, or a swear word that needs to be avoided at all cost. Yet, one of the reasons Agile came to life, is to be able to respond predictably and quickly to ever changing business and IT needs.

Agile is the way of the future and is here to stay.

It is important to know how Agile can form a part of your business and IT journey in a way that enables your team, unit and business to respond to change quickly and effectively.

In doing so, there are a few hot topics that needs exploring:

  • Agile being vs Agile doing
  • Agile and culture
  • The impact of Agile on team composition, delivery and motivation
  • How Agile helps us to respond, infuse and create change in our environments
  • Why Agile can cause anxiety and resistance
An Bakkes is a certified Agile practitioner, coach and facilitator (ACI) that worked with various teams and industries on introducing and refining Agile in teams and companies. She is a master coach (MPhil in Management Coaching- Stellenbosch University) that facilitates change in individuals, teams and businesses in different stages of maturity and growth. An is the author of the book “Embracing Anxiety: Coming back with Hope".
