Kerstin, what do you think is the added value of agile companies?
Kerstin Thinnes: In my opinion, an agile approach is key to mastering digital and customer-centric transformation. This challenges companies to change faster and continuously. If companies want to ensure their competitiveness, they must be optimally prepared for the increasing market dynamics and fully exploit their potential. This works by developing an agile culture and anchoring agility in their organization.
What can our visitors expect from the combination of culinary delights and agile methods?
Kerstin Thinnes: By means of culinary art, our guests can easily experience how agile processes work. With our brand values – explore curiously, think holistically, act inspirationally, transform successfully – we convey the individual steps of an agile approach: The visitors go through individual sprint cycles to create a dish. The idea is: After each sprint, the visitor receives a "finished" dish, which can, however, be expanded further in the next sprint. Here, the guest decides for himself how many sprint cycles he wants to run through in order to receive "his" final dish.
Kerstin Thinnes is responsible for the rpc line Transformation and Change. She is particularly interested in Agile Transformation, as she believes that change management and successful transformation are inseparably linked. Companies that have successfully implemented a transformation live change management day after day – change management is installed in the DNA of an agile transformed company. At the No-Line Dinner she makes the topic of agility tangible for the guests by means of culinary arts.
