Within a few years, everything will connect to everything via the Internet. The so-called 'Internet of Things' will propel the era of the 'Customer'. Fast translation of direct end customer feedback into usable and valuable functionalities is the key for survival of all businesses. Consequently business strategies will mainly focus around the topic: ‘Business Innovation Acceleration’. This new focus in strategy only reaches its full potential when the new Agile (business and IT) teams deliver a continuous flow of functionalities to production (technically made possible by continuous deployment principles). Along side the complete management culture needs to drastically change towards ‘servant leadership’. The past years the Xebia Agile Consulting unit has successfully implemented these preconditions within multiple organizations to support their newly formed business strategies.
