When young entrepreneurial teams meet agile: best practices and successful strategies for agile management
【演講大綱 Speech Abstract】
When young entrepreneurial teams face a fiercely competitive, resource-constrained, and constantly evolving market environment, agile management has become a crucial strategy for success, finding practical applications in any field, particularly in the startup world.
Within agile teams, cooperation and communication among members become more frequent and efficient. This helps ensure that the team collectively strives in the same direction, maximizing productivity. Through the agile approach, each team member gains a clear understanding of their responsibilities and the roles they play in achieving the team’s goals.
This year, I participated in the Youth Generation Agile Empowerment Program as an agile coach. I collaborated with “田野勤學” from Beitou, Changhua (a soybean farming youth organization) to implement agile management. Through the application of Trello board tools, we underwent over four months of coaching and mentoring. Now, the agile management methodology has been internalized as the organization’s management model, successfully enhancing communication efficiency, achieving operational transparency, clarifying task assignments and divisions of labor. Notably, it has significantly boosted annual revenue performance, making it one of this year’s successful cases of agile adoption.
Agile management encourages young entrepreneurs to continuously learn, embrace failures, and gain experience from them. This learning culture contributes to team growth and development, making them more competitive. When young entrepreneurial teams encounter agile management, they not only adapt better to market changes but also build an efficient, collaborative team that continually enhances the value of their products or services, ultimately achieving success in a highly competitive environment. This underscores that agile management is not merely a management methodology but also a survival strategy for success, particularly suited for young entrepreneurs thriving in uncertain environments.
