Our company has been founded an agile company, without knowing the term “agile”.
Being agile lies in the nature of each individual and stand for values that are implemented in our DNA, e.g. respect, self-responsibility, learning, etc. For us there are additionally two important aspects of agility, which changes the culture of you company: networking and self-organisation. Of course, there are other points that could be listed and which are important. What we want to say is that if many people with such values and characters come together, it promotes agile action and increases the innovation and sustainability of the company. We are living with these values and more since over 23 years and nobody called it “agile” in the beginning.
