FAIL FAST BUT SMART! LESSONS LEARNED FROM AN AGILE TRANSFORMATION JOURNEY  

MATTIAS WAHLBERG |Product Leader Tacdis, Volvo Car Retail Solutions

 

Mattias personal drive is to create software products that users want to use. Great user experience is key for both corporate users and for end customers. Volvo Car Retail Solution have undertaken an internal agile transformation which has unleashed the power of the agile way of working where they involve customers and users early to get quick response and feedback. Our internal pace has increased a lot and time to market for new features has decreased by a factor of 10, at least. 

When your market transforms, for example, due to digitalization, it’s hard to predict the future. To move from a known state towards greater unpredictability is scary in itself. To do that journey with a rigid organization stuck in processes and structures can end in a virtual catastrophe. Poor user experience and lack of trust in the market is the unavoidable result. How can you transform into an agile organization that avoids that result, and instead delivers a great user experience? During this talk, Mattias will share Volvo Car Retail System’s journey. How they try, learn and change, to fail fast but smart so that they can deliver better value with greater impact sooner than excepted.
