    Bringing people, processes, and tools together for true transformational success


    Too often, organisations jump on the idea that simply changing processes, performing a restructure, or introducing a shiny new tool will lead to transformational success. The truth is, without looking at people, processes, and tools together—simultaneously—organisations are greatly limiting their potential to delight customers and employees alike.

    In a nutshell, the success of your transformation effort starts and ends with the ability to combine people, processes, and tools harmoniously while ensuring they’re all contributing to the same, clearly defined goals.

    Of course, this is easier said than done. Throughout this session, our agile experts will hone in on all three tenets of successful agile transformation giving practical examples of effectively integrating them to boost productivity and innovation. From shifting your mindset to creating a psychologically safe workplace to choosing the right tools to help you succeed, our experts leave no stone unturned when exploring what it takes to be a successful agile organisation today.

    Digital transformation that saves lives (and time)


    Digital transformations can be daunting at the best of times - particularly when it involves uplifting years or even decades' worth of established systems and ways of working. 

    SickKids Foundation, one of Canada’s largest fundraisers, wanted to scale their fundraising but were reaching the limit of what their current work processes could achieve. Using emails and phones will only take you so far.

    Join us as we explore how SickKids Foundation (with some help from Adaptavist) were able to ditch those manual processes in favour of one central, streamlined service management platform using Jira Service Management.
