Catherine Harrisson, North Highland & Joel Robinson, Sainsbury's
Digital & Technology (D&T) within Sainsbury's was facing challenges with the speed and value of its delivery and needed to evolve to offer its people a better experience and be a true partner to the business. 18 months ago, a new organisation structure designed around product families was introduced and since then a small collaborative team of Sainsbury’s and North Highland colleagues have been working on developing a sustainable transformation in ways of working across D&T at Sainsbury’s. Their presentation will cover how to build stable, integrated teams, Agile ways of working, the implications of pushing decision-making to the lowest point in the organisation, and prioritising by value and measuring value delivered.
Jeremy Renwick, Agilesphere
In Jeremy's session about the Minimum Viable Organisation, he will cover things like what Agile leadership means in practice, what putting the customer value first really means (particularly the impact on "support" functions such as finance, operations and HR), money in an Agile organisation and day-to-day management of an Agile business - how do you integrate delivering strategic initiatives with business as usual? How does Agilesphere manage work in progress when there are incoming, unanticipated issues?
