EMBRACING AGILE PRACTICES TO MOULD MANAGEMENT IN THE VIRTUAL WORLD
Our world is going through an era of digital transformation. Organizations globally have adapted to a new normal which is primarily virtual. With many organizations moving to a digital workplace, Agile practices can be used by companies to encourage interactions, customer collaboration, flexibility, and product delivery in a virtual world. Agility introduced in a virtual world will bring in fluidity, ingenuity and will help to ensure company-wide process management and effective cross-functional communication.
