Smart Development News 2/2021

Dear Subscriber,

Welcome to autumn and our latest CO Improve newsletter!

As the days get shorter and the light gets darker, you need bright spotlights and refreshing inspiration. And that's exactly what we've put together for you.

Our first big bright spot: Read a great E-Mobility success story from Germany. How an automotive company used agile working to drive the development of electric vehicles and successfully brought them to the finish line.

Even though digital tools for networking have more than established themselves and bring many advantages, the personal exchange together at an event has been missing in recent months. That is why you are looking ahead with us, because we are planning our AGILE@HARDWARE 2022 "live" again with a lot of heart and soul, exciting topics and exceptional speakers.

Goals are important and your teams need them Goals for orientation. We have prepared for you how you can significantly increase the commitment of your teams and the "burning for the cause".

Finally, we would like to recommend a Quick Check, which can uncover additional potential in your company at little cost to you in terms of time and money.

For now, we wish you many inspiring and bright moments while reading our autumn highlights.

With best regards
Yours, Dirk Meißner
