Welcome to BCG Bytes, a collection of BCG’s current thinking about all things digital by our experts in Australia and New Zealand. In this edition, what agile organisations need to succeed.
Agile ways of working are starting to take hold in many organisations. The principles of agile are based on co-located teams. But, is it reasonable to expect that people working in different parts of the country—or, in some cases, opposite sides of the world—can succeed with Agile? And what if they don’t all work for you directly and are outsourced functions? In this week’s edition we hear what skills, thoughts and processes can help teams to succeed in these situations and the qualities the leaders need to get us there.
