Webinar debates agility in organizations and minimum viable products
On Friday, July 17, the Innovation and Markets Department at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian Institute of Economics (FGV IBRE) will hold a webinar called “Agility and Minimum Viable Products: Why, What and How.” The event will feature FGV IBRE researcher Raíra Marotta and learning and organizational agility facilitator Yoris Linhares, to debate the importance of applying these concepts at companies. The event will be broadcast live on FGV’s YouTube channel, from 10 am to midday.
Minimum Viable Product (MVP) methodologies allow the development of products in modules or phases, making customer service more agile. In an ever-faster world, applying these techniques enables companies to develop solutions that better respond to their customers’ problems.
“Methodologies that combine design thinking, agile methods and MVP are now a reality. They are already being used by companies such as Google and Facebook to achieve the organizational agility needed for innovation. Because of the pandemic, social distancing restrictions and the greater use of technologies, the advantages of using these methodologies have become more evident. Companies have had to adapt in record time, and in many cases, this has required them to develop and learn about systems and methods that were not previously used. These are points we will talk about at the event,” Marotta explains.
Agile methods are increasingly widespread at companies, harnessing fundamental concepts such as experimentation with minimum viable products. Marotta says that people new to MVP usually have many questions about how it works. At the webinar, following initial presentations about the subject, there will be time to respond to questions that may arise.
Yoris Linhares has more than 20 years of experience in software project development and management. He has a master’s in administration and he has lectured on undergraduate and graduate IT and management courses.
