Companies have always been in constant change, which is nowadays closely linked to the buzzwords “digitization” and “agility”. Agile methods can pave the way for targeted digitization, especially in complex projects, and, on the other hand, digital technologies promote a more agile way of working. Through group discussions with managers from medium-sized IT companies, this article focuses on the question of whether agility is a prerequisite or a consequence of targeted digitization. This article is aimed at decision-makers from medium-sized IT companies who want to increase the level of agility in the company in the context of increasing digitalization.
I blog about the influence of digitalization on our working world. For this purpose, I provide content from science in a practical way and show helpful tips from my everyday professional life. I am an executive in an SME and I wrote my doctoral thesis at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg at the Chair of IT Management.
