Do you like technology and Formula 1?10.04.17 | Rondetafel Milton Keynes, England
On 10 & 11 April, CIO Magazine will organise an innovation trip to the Red Bull Racing Factory in Milton Keynes (UK) in cooperation with AT&T, an Innovation Partner of Red Bull Racing.
We will focus on ‘The Agile Enterprise’ during this trip. During the trip we have some inspirational contributions from, among others, Jurriaan Kamer (Agile CIO), but we will also have a private ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Factory, to see how Red Bull Racing design, develop, manufacture and assemble their racing cars. You’ll also hear a keynote presentation from Al Peasland, Head of Technical Partnerships, Red Bull Racing, about how modern technology contributes to the winning performances of their drivers, including our own Max Verstappen.
To be successful in Formula 1, a team has to adapt to changes quickly. Through an optimal combination of technology, talent and organisation a team is capable of learning and innovating continuously.
By using data, cars become one step better after each race so they can stay ahead of the competition. Formula 1 teams are agile organisations that are strictly managed and they have one clear objective: winning the race.
For most companies this is no different: to cope with the ever faster changing world, aa different way of organising is necessary. This is not a minor change, but a total transformation of the way organisations lead, innovate, develop, finance and attract talent. It is inevitable that existing processes, structures and practices are reinvented in order to become future-proof.
The implementation of 'agile' is not enough to become truly agile. But then what is? Jurriaan Kamer conducted research at companies like Spotify, Google, Facebook and Airbnb and found 13 characteristics these organisations have in common. During the inspiration session we'll look at these similarities. We will then interactively make them applicable to your organisation.
