Speaker's Session

Room 1: Auditorium

In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, the ability to scale operations while maintaining agility is crucial for organizations to stay competitive. However, there exists a phenomenon where as teams grow larger, they often become less agile due to increased bureaucracy, communication barriers, and slower decision-making processes. This abstract explores strategies to address this challenge and proposes ideas to foster scalability without sacrificing agility. To mitigate the risk of losing agility as teams expand, organizations must prioritize fostering a culture of flexibility, adaptability, and innovation. This can be achieved through implementing agile methodologies such as Scrum or Kanban, which emphasize iterative development, frequent communication, and continuous improvement. Additionally, cross-functional teams should be encouraged to collaborate closely, breaking down silos and promoting knowledge sharing.
