For a company to enter the global market successfully, a new mindset is needed, and existing processes need to be adapted. Typically, teams aren’t used to making globalization a priority, resulting in globalization efforts often having poor experiences for the development teams, globalization teams and ultimately the end customer. Getting teams excited about adopting new processes and solutions requires a true understanding of their activities and how the new processes will affect their daily professional life. We will explore the impact of this problem, the strategies and best practices to get teams excited about globalization.
Takeaways: Through presentation of real scenarios, attendees will learn strategies for how to be global in an agile unstructured environment as well as approaches to share the challenges of a global team to get other teams energized.
