Transformational Journey: Empowering a Collaborative Agile Culture

Undergoing Transformation?
Sprinting to be agile?
Wondering how to keep colleagues engaged while building future focus skills?

Join Citizens Bank and WITI as we take a deep dive into how we are tackling some of these challenges at Citizens.

During this event, you'll learn about some of our NextGen Technology Learning initiatives, hear real stories from colleagues, and better understand how our leaders are serving as a catalyst for these exciting changes.

Agile is essential for all management and software teams to deliver fast and effective value.

It's more than just a mindset. It is incremental delivery, team collaboration, continual planning and learning.

In this event, we will showcase how and why through case studies and Q &A.
