Rico is Product Manager & Innovation Facilitator Manager at Roche. Together with Jan Zerkowski, he is part of the team tasked with transforming the swiss affiliate into an agile organisation. Experiencing agile methodologies with the teams in concrete business examples is key to prompt a mindset change. By giving the example of Roche's swiss affiliate agile transformation journey, both can outline how to start a transformation with more than 160 people.
The Agility Bootcamp
Jan and I will talk about how we started the agile transformation in our organization by developing a scalable model that on-boards people on Agile Methodologies which creates the foundation and interest for people to take charge themselves and become leaders in the transformation process. We believe our way creates one thing that most transformations lack and therefore fail, sustainability. This is not rocket science. Everyone can do it. The reason most people don't is that they lack the crucial thing in Life and Business itself. Mindset. You need to instill and reinforce it with everything you do.
