Rock meets Finance

Christoph Otten, Business Analyst of concedro GmbH and lead singer, songwriter as well as guitarist of the alternative band „The Burning Ice Bears“ impressed with his band members in this year’s competition for the German Rock & Pop Prize in Siegen. The article „Business Analyst in Banken: Wie Rockmusik im Job hilft“, published on December 27, 2019 at the IT Financemagazin is dedicated to the interdependant balance and overall aspect of enrichment achieved by combining work and musical passion. In addition to creativity and a solid amount of teambuilding, it is a confident appearance as well as a goal-oriented approach that Christoph Otten considers essential in both areas.

5 Myths that hinder agility

In the face of increasingly complex surroundings, Scrum and other agile methodologies became the new mean of our daily business. But who is to justify the end considering the rising number of employees that regard the step towards agility as rather unfortunate? In fact, it might be argued agility has passed the Hype-Cycle’s peak. Even Ken Schwaber, one of the founding fathers of Scrum, came to estimate that 75 percent of all Scrum projects fail to deliver desired expectations. But why? We are presenting five myths that hamper the desires to build agile operations. Starting off from the actual parts to play by IT and Business units, up to training personnel and the role of higher management.

Consistently, we will point out useful steps to achieve the transformation into an agile organization and avoid the garden path. diebank/04.2019.pdf
