Skills are key, but which ones?

The need for digitalization continues to accelerate for companies requiring digital to reinvent themselves, in a global competition in remote-work.

This poses a real problem in a context where training mechanisms and human retraining capacities are limited.

  • Christophe Moustier, Consultant at Inetum, Agilitest Ambassador, author of the card game “Agility Maturity Cards”, “Le Test en mode Agile” and “Conducting agile tests for SAFe and LeSS

Survival depends on organizations’ ability to quickly capture economies of speed and scale.

Technology must be an integral part of businesses to achieve short cycles of continuous adaptation of their value proposition.

Businesses need teams that collaborate quickly at scale to create value-added digital offerings for their users.

The existing dynamics are not sufficient
