Building resilience - How SumUp fosters agility across the organisation
Resilience is the ability to anticipate, prepare for, respond and adapt to incremental change and sudden disruptions in order to survive in a crisis and thrive in uncertainty. What does it take to build resilience in an organisation? This is the question we will ponder over in the webinar.

About the Topic
SumUp, with the vision of empowering small businesses all over the world, views nurturing agility as a means to build resilience and foster innovation. Small cross-functional teams working in a rhythm of short feedback loops have been a norm in the Engineering and Product teams ever since inception. About 2 years ago, SumUp embarked on a journey aimed at bringing agility to a totally different level; across the organisation with a value stream oriented view. Hear it from the leaders on what agility means to them in this podcast.
Were there challenges during this journey? Did they manage to address them? Can such a journey be ever complete? How did they measure progress? Makarand Purohit, an agile coach at SumUp, will share the guiding principles and core capabilities central to their agile journey. He will share how these principles helped evolve the organisational structure based on the value streams(Tribes, Squads, Chapters, Guilds) He will also highlight specific, practical techniques and share some interesting anecdotes. Makarand will also present a data-informed way of measuring progress on this journey.
SumUp has been able to help its merchants survive and thrive in the current crisis through innovative offerings. Join our webinar to learn about the challenges and benefits of nurturing agility across the organisation.
