Agility at Boehringer Ingelheim

Register here

In order to succeed in a rapidly changing environment and to achieve our AMBITION 2025, we at Boehringer Ingelheim need to evolve into a more agile organisation. That is why the founders of the Intro 2 Agile - Olivia Asselin, Johannes Gaedicke, and Jonathan Tripp - developed a 3-day foundational training to introduce BI employees to the topics of agile working.

Where are we going

Agile Working is about uncovering needs and discovering solutions to meet those needs. Join the Intro 2 Agile and become an Agile Ambassador of BI!

Why Agile

We are living in times of uncertainty. The Agile way of working provides you with tools and methods to navigate through these uncertainties. It helps teams to deliver user-centred solutions and reducing the fear of the unknown. Most importantly, agile is a mindset on how one approaches a situation and works in a team.

"Best wishes on our Agile way forward! After you leave this Intro 2 Agile, please remember and act upon the "user-centricity, collaborate and iterate" agile principles - Enjoy!"
