In this exclusive video, Jo Biggin (Transformation Business Change Lead at Vodafone Business) discusses the combination of business change and agile in the lead up to her talk at IRM UK's Business Change and Transformation Conference Europe in London on the 18th-20th March.
Jo looks at the challenges of implementing an agile culture, highlighting how the predominant issue, isn't changing the programme team, it's the rest of the business. Jo continues to look at how agile requires continuous engagement and involvement from everyone throughout the organisation during times of change, highlighting the importance of clear communication during change.
Jo built and leads the Transformation Business Change team for Vodafone Business. The teamwork on complex, global, multi-million value transformation initiatives. She also set up and runs a Business Change Guild, which is a centre of excellence for Vodafone worldwide. Jo has been with Vodafone for over twenty years, working on large scale transformation programmes for the last twelve. Specifically, she had a key change role in the UK on Vodafone’s largest transformation programme to date. Involved from the start, she managed the set-up of new business teams through to the business deployment and adoption activities. Since becoming Business Change Lead for Transformation, she has created a Delivery Guide, which gives detailed guidance on implementing business change. She has also been instrumental in convincing senior management that business change is key to the success of transformation programmes, and continues to drive business change best practice on Agile programmes.
