Agile is a philosophy well known for managing software products and teams. But it is not just that. It is also a powerful tool for innovation in any industry, language services included. The agile manifesto states that individuals and interactions are more important than processes and tools. Customer collaboration is more important than contract negotiation. And responding to change is more important than following a plan. This webinar aims to introduce the main concepts of Agile Management and “localize” them to language service organizations and translation project management in particular. 

We will cover

  • The agile organization: work environment, trust, communication, and team.
  • The values and pillars of Scrum.
  • How to apply the agile philosophy to translation project management.
  • The value of errors as an investment in constant improvement.
