Title & abstract of Rolands speech:

Digital mega projects in times of agility – how is this supposed to work?

Digitalisation headlines some of the biggest change portfolios. There is a lot of talk about disruption, “creative destruction” and re-inventing established businesses. This speech explores the apparent call for a new era of mega projects and radical changes in consideration of its contradiction with another great movement of our time: agility. It further elaborates on practical ways of resolving this conflict by applying the agile mindset as well as by introducing effective means to create a change portfolio that reflects the required changes in a less radical and more manageable fashion.
