From Marathon to Sprints – How Communicators can embrace the Agile methodology

Rapid and constant change is the new norm, and communications planning needs to adapt. A nimble communications team is well positioned to seize opportunities, respond to crises and quickly adjust their work to follow trends, leading them to greater success in both the short and longer-term.  In this session, you’ll learn how to adapt the Agile methodology, so popular with software developers, to create strategies that remain relevant in a changing environment and gain better visibility on your team’s workload and priorities. We’ll cover the basics of Agile, discuss tools and approaches that can help you successfully transition to Agile, and review different examples of how communications teams have embraced Agile to best achieve their goals.
