Agile Case Study: How we Trained 100,000 Agile Mind-sets Globally

Presented by: Pardeep Dhanda, Sam Atwal


As organisations prepare their Business Analysts for new ways of working in the digital world, effective training strategies are becoming ever more important to succeed.

In 2017, Deutsche Bank started an Agile transformation across 170 countries involving 100,000 people! They setup an internal Agile Services team to drive Agile engagement, learning and transformation to allow the organisation to maximise flow and value.

Join Pardeep Dhanda, the Head of Agile Learning, to hear about his three biggest passions, Business Analysis, Agile and training. Pardeep will talk about Deutsche Bank's Agile education strategy that has created over 2000 agile mind-sets across the Business Analysis profession. He will talk about the biggest challenges in training Business Analysts when moving into an Agile delivery model and adopting frameworks such as Scrum and Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Pardeep will also share case studies where Business Analysts have played a pivotal role in the success of projects, such as Deutsche Bank’s Digital Factory, who were the first to launch a banking app on the Apple watch in Germany.
