Why Agile innovation is the cornerstone of Valtech's transformation goals

From publication of its Agile Manifesto in 2001, Valtech, realizing that a revolution was afoot, embarked on an ongoing transformation quest with ever expanding goals.

Over the years, Valtech has set itself up as an ongoing pioneer of agile transformation, which spanned introducing flexible practices among staff developing Scrum, XP and Kanban, while supporting large-scale corporate transformations.

Underpinned by Agile and Lean training, coaching and consulting services in various industries including automotive, telecoms, retail and finance, Valtech built a reputation in these fields that went well beyond its direct clients.

Meanwhile the world became more complex, uncertain and interdependent. Empirical analysis that underpins agile methodologies turned out to be crucial for organizations to realize their potential. Agility has moved on from a mere aspiration among a few visionaries to be an essential cornerstone of any digital transformation project.

From initially being limited to R&D, agility has broken out and now encompasses business operations and innovation (e.g. ‘lean startup’, ‘customer experience’, ‘DevOps’), trying out new corporate governance and organizational methods (e.g. SAFe, LeSS etc). Backed by its market reputation, Valtech has managed to develop renowned expertise in all these fields.

Nowadays, Valtech draws on its expertise to advance and build on its ideas: based on a client team structure comprising stable and multi-disciplinary people, the company makes continuous improvement a reality for its clients’ business challenges.

Valtech Agile Center of Excellence, which spans agile coaches, ScrumMasters and functional experts, supports business transformation while giving all staff a chance to thrive and flourish on the often stormy yet always exciting Agility journey.
