AgileThought Virtual Community

Now more than ever, companies around the world are scrambling to acclimate to the new reality we’re all facing: Social distancing and entirely remote workforces. For some, this shift may be less impactful – but for many, this is a daunting behavioral and emotional adjustment.

This is why we introduced our virtual community events: To give attendees a platform to ask questions about the challenges they’re running into.

 

Conversation Topic:

Agile isn’t just about software development teams and frameworks. It’s also about how you think. Your approach to solving problems, collaboration, and delivering value. In our next AgileThought Virtual Community event, we will start part one of a mini series exploring agile thinking in places we may not normally think of when we think about agile. Join host Quincy Jordan, a principal transformation consultant at AgileThought, and special guest panelists.

 

What to Expect:

Building upon our previous sessions, this AgileThought Virtual Community panel will give attendees a platform to discover agile thinking in the following areas:

  • Human Resources (Panelist: Natal Dank — PXO Culture)
  • Finance (Panelist: Cindy Cruz — PwC)
  • Family Life (Panelist: Yvonne Marcus — Agile Coach for Families)

 

We will also record this virtual panel and publish it on our On-demand Webinars for future viewing.

 

Who Should Attend:

Anyone impacted by this transition is welcome to join, but this will be particularly helpful for:

  • IT Leaders who want to understand the challenges their teams are facing
  • Managers looking for ways to support their direct reports
  • Companies looking for remote solutions for their teams
  • New remote teams
