Agile in industry and high tech




Can you work agile in industry and high tech?

In this webinar from Improve Quality Services (part of ICT Group), we’ll take you through the experience we and our clients have had applying agile practices in industry and high tech.

What is possible, what isn’t, what adds value and what doesn’t? Through two expert guest speakers and our own insights, we will answer these questions.

Building complex systems

In industry and high tech we execute projects where complex systems are built. Hardware and software are developed, both at a different pace, but it has to come together somewhere in an intermediate or final product.

This is different from projects where you only develop software and can show something every two weeks. So can you work agile in industry and high tech? How do you then deliver a Minimum Viable Product every two weeks? How do you integrate in the sprint? Is there any point in working agile at all?

The latter: we think so!

Join us for our webinar on Wednesday, January 19.


Please note that this webinar is in Dutch. We will post a recording with English subtitles after the event.
