Article Elsevier

Elsevier is a Dutch independent weekly news magazine. The magazine focuses primarily on higher educated readers and various segments within the market sector. In a special edition on Business Agility, they published an interview with Niels Verdonk and Garbrand van der Molen, two leading Agile Coaches of agile42 in the Netherlands.

In the interview they discuss various aspects of Agile in particular why it is that organisations often don't realize the full potential of Agile. 

Niels Verdonk: "In many organisations Agile is still seen as something which is something for the IT Department, without involvement of the rest of the organisation."

Garbrand van der Molen: "Invest in key competencies such as leadership, team coaching and product management. Implementing Agile requires a shift in paradigm."

Some parts of the printed magazine will also be made available online. We will update this post with references to the online material.

Here you can find the article online in Dutch.
