In collaboration with my partner PT. Sinergi Daya Mitra (SDM) we had a webinar session on 11 May 2020 discussing agile for the new normal to BPJS Ketenagakerjaan’s team.
Despite agile manifesto coming from IT environment to develop software, its principle such as adaptive (responding to change) and teamwork (individuals and interactions) is becoming more and more relevant on today’s COVID-19 pandemic.
One of the most interesting discussions was that the new normal has brought many positive sides, such as meeting is getting more efficient by having video call (zoom session) and meeting attendees are more committed than ever before. On the other hand, we should not overlook that there are certain limitation when having communication to our team, since we are not able to have face-to-face conversation as suggested by agile principle.
Nevertheless, we all agreed that we need to be adaptive to the new normal and view this as challenge that we can overcome, rather than a threat. Stay safe guys!
