THYSSENKRUPP ACADEMY

'Agility in Action' program for group leaders across various business units and affiliates

To accelerate agile transformation at Thyssenkrupp, we collaborated with tk Academy and delivered a 4-months-long ‘Agility In Action’ program. Participants experienced agile principles and tools, “New Work” rituals, and innovative methods and cultures applicable in daily workflow as well as in large priority projects. Our program was designed to empower leaders to instantly implement rituals and tools – from a meeting revolution to OKR goal setting to Sprints and KANBAN workflow design.

"“Agility in Action” program was different to any other program I have experienced. The reason was that it has revealed the “Why”. Why it is so important to change the way we work today in our company. In addition to great learning sessions with a whole bunch of tools and methods (down-to-earth) I got to know the mindset of agility. The team of Berlin Innovation Agency was awesome – inspiring, competent and really helpful – they live what they teach. Thanks a lot."

"Training Bootcamp Agility in Action program could not have come at a better time for me. We were struggling with many meetings and a high workload of actions resulting in many delays. This very practical training gave me many suggestions for improvement in our business. The quite unique follow up program allowed for follow up, and a bit of pressure, to ensure successful implementation. I would highly recommend the program"

"Darius and his team did an amazing job. Training bootcamp “Agility in Action” absolutely inspired me to adjust some of our daily habits and working ways. Thanks to him and his team we significantly improved our email communication and greatly reduced alignment meetings that just weren’t necessary. The program inspired me to think more agile which resulted in new concepts that were developed bottom up (e.g. culture workshop), in the end motivating the whole team."

Our team was challenged to transform our company in EMEA to do marketing dramatically different in 12 months. We quickly realized that we could not work with traditional business schools, training organizations or consulting firms. Berlin Innovation Agency (BIA) and NUMA Paris were recommended to us through our network, and fully delivered their promise. We worked with them in partnership and were able to design an innovative way of training and transformation that changed mindsets and ways of working and radically transformed our organization. We would not have been able to do this without the partnership and forward-thinking of NUMA in Paris and BIA in Berlin.
