Agile software development is no longer a fad, a niche methodology, or just for startups: it’s a requirement for any modern and adaptive development organization. Without the adoption of agile practices, your business may be challenged to keep pace with customer commitments, beat the competition to market, and establish a roadmap for strategic innovation. But a proven framework for agile transformation—including services and tooling can enhance your productivity and speed, and support you as you scale.
Speed is increasingly becoming the most important factor in project execution for a modern business. Of course, it has always been important to deliver projects as quickly as possible—that’s why schedules were developed and managed to. But historically those schedules were usually rather arbitrary. Today, things are very different. Customers expect more functionality more quickly than ever before, and they are unwilling to tolerate delays or missed commitments.
Organizations have recognized the importance of minimizing time to delivery, seeking to leverage opportunities and solve challenges in as little time as possible, but in doing so they have frequently forgotten one critical aspect. They aren’t actively managing those time horizons—they are simply careening headlong toward the end goal. That can introduce significant problems, and that’s what we want to look at in this white paper.

Agenda automation software eliminates manual tasks associated with creating, distributing, and publishing agendas, reduces the prep time (by as much as 50% or more) and associated costs of meetings while introducing a flexibility that makes tight deadlines easier to manage.
The impact is far reaching, from improved transparency to freeing up staff time to work on other priorities. It not only pays for itself in paper savings, it brings money back into the budget—from $300 to $1000 per meeting, depending on the size of the organization.
