Be a Disruptor, not a Disruptee!

Accenture | SolutionsIQ @ Agile Leadership and Business Agility Day on October 23rd in Zurich

About the Event

On October 23rd, 2019 the annual Agile Leadership and Business Agility Day took place in Zurich. At the largest Swiss conference in this field, many leaders and personalities from the industry met for exciting speeches, instructive workshops or for simple talks at the exhibition. The exchange of insights and best practices from leading companies as well as networking across functional areas and industries were at the top of the agenda.

        

Our Participation and Message

Accenture | SolutionsIQ, the specialized agile transformation group within Accenture, was represented for the first time as a platinum partner and member of the conference Advisory Board. We were using the conference for positioning our brand as the #1 Business Agility company in Switzerland and beyond that. Hence, we conducted one workshop about increasing business value and held three practical speeches together with our clients based in the US and Switzerland. Furthermore, we were onsite with a booth including a special attraction: Besides high-quality barista coffee, we offered all participants the unique occasion to experience our Agile Amped podcast live and meet agile leaders and Business Agility experts while debating and recording. Finally, we have taken the chance to communicate our services such as leadership advisory as well as coaching a modern organization which enables a more dynamic market orientation or a higher product innovation capability. Also the enablement of a high performing delivery organization with its corresponding competencies and technology is part of the portfolio.

The Attraction

The Agile Amped podcast is the shared voice of our Agile Community, driven by inspiring and compelling stories, passionate people and innovative ideas. In this context, we were able to interview and record podcasts with Ken Spangler (EVP FedEx and CIO FedEx Express & Logistics), Kirsten Renner (Head of Credit Suisse – Swiss Universal Bank IT & CIO Switzerland) and more admiring personalities from the industry.
Did we spark your interest? Those podcasts and many more will be released sporadically within the next weeks on the Agile Amped podcast platform.

        

Our Benefit

Overall, ten agile specialists from Accenture | SolutionsIQ were on the ground during this day and alternated to ensure a presence at the booth. They mainly provided information, answered questions about our organization and generated business leads. The booth was one of the most visited ones, since its eye catcher look & feel and the best location next to the main entrance and main hall. In order to achieve our market positioning efforts most effectively, various flyers, brochures, T-shirts and drinking bottles were distributed as merchandising articles and giveaways to the conference participants. Moreover, LinkedIn posts were prepared for social media and were distributed with an enormous diversification potential.
