Conference 2018 India LogoMarketers must comply with tight legal, brand, and risk requirements imposed on them by the organisations. How can we apply an Agile mindset & framework here?

Marketing departments want to be agile, but still tend to be hierarchical and command and control driven. How can we break down these organisational structures and cultures? Marketers are familiar with “test and learn”, but don’t apply this to their own work practices easily. How can we leverage this to our advantage?

Antony provides insights from his journey leading a marketing department in a large Australian bank, shifting their mindset and practices away from “fake” Agile towards a more effective way of harnessing Agile’s power of experimentation and learning. Antony shares practical suggestions on how to understand work processes in non-technical areas and how to select Agile frameworks, then experiment and continuously improve.
