We see that many big enterprises want big enterprise agility. For this reason, agile42 is today introducing the Agile Rubber-Stamp for Enterprises™, a collection of practices that provide a one-size-fits-all approach to agility at scale.

The framework is based on stuff that worked a couple of years ago for a couple of large companies. These companies used continuous improvement techniques to develop the methods that we have now copied into the framework, and they have also evolved on from there. Unfortunately continuous improvement is old news and difficult to sell, so our framework carefully omits the underlying philosophy and jumps ...

(Deutsche Version, s. u.)

Berlin, 11 June 2012 – Agile methods and agile development of software and hardware bring great flexibility, whilst being leaner than traditional models. Instead of defining the full details of a project in advance via sets of specifications, under the agile approach it is only the next key stage that is targeted. The individual stages (sprints) rarely last more than two weeks, meaning that it is easy to maintain an overview at all times. Adaptations – which are necessary on all major development projects as they progress – can be implemented more easily using this empirical approach than using ...

In April 2012 Andrea Tomasini had a Keynote at the Lifecycle Conference in Munich. He started his presentation with some information about Customer Capitalism and what are the changes in the business world over the past years?

A large number of economists, sociologists and even historians are dealing with this
question. And certainly they have the proper qualification to analyze the various farreaching dimensions of the changes. Our point of view is far more pragmatic. We describe the changes from the perspectives of Managers and Entrepreneurs, trying to give a holistic picture of the “What” and “Why”.
