Join us for this 1-hour interactive discussion around Agile Culture. We will be joined by some of the thought leaders from the 2023 Awards and will be able to draw from their experiences. Drawing from their experiences we will then open the floor for questions.
This Member-only discussion will provide a valuable opportunity to ask questions and broaden our understanding of this critical area within the Framework for Business Agility. This peer-to-peer learning discussion will be facilitated by Pam Ashby.
- Learn from and share experiences with peers
- Access to awards thought leaders in a small group environment
As Marketing Director of Saba, Sylvia has kick-started and driven a customer-centric digital transformation in an industry pivoting from “Infrastructure Management” to “Mobility”.
She considers the “Agile” framework that she discovered in 2016 and that she has applied ever since with the group’s global Marketing team and strategic partners to have been instrumental in this success. Putting the customer at the center, listening to her, and aligning the organization around these insights to assure on-going relevant value-creation have been at the heart of her professional career, in both B2B and B2C environments. A digital optimist, she declares “Constant Beta” her life philosophy.
Sylvia is Austrian and has been living in Barcelona with her husband and 3 now adult daughters for many years.
