Abstract/Description

Here’s the story of a once industry-leading organization that fell into the pitfalls of success: complacency, bureaucracy and aging technology. Through acquisition and merger, it was given the opportunity to be reborn itself as a nimble, agile organization. Keen to find out how a once-successful company reinvents itself through agile, so as to stay relevant and brand itself as a market-leading organization that is also a great place to work? If yes, then this talk is for you! We will cover the journey of two Southeast Asian online job marketplaces that were pioneers during the first dot-com revolution, only to fall behind as global competitors emerged. Both platforms were then acquired and merged to form a single entity. However that was merely the start of a new journey to not only stay relevant, but also to be renewed and stay successful. This sharing will highlight the journey of the leadership team brought together to revitalise, energize and reinvent once mighty giants, with the outcome of being recognised as winners of the World Agility Forum 2020’s Agile Great Place to Work Award. It will holistically look at the transformation of an organization, from how to create focus, invest in people and shape its organisational culture, to sustained development and delivery of effective products to customers.
