What we at Nordea did to transform a 750 people program to an Agile Delivery Organization

Get inspired and discuss what you can learn from how Nordea transformed a 750 people program to an Agile Delivery Organization with the help of SAFe!

Learn why active involvement of all Leaders was necessary to enable and shape the agile transformation that reduced our lead time by 50% and increased people engagement.

Nordea is in the midst of its biggest transformations in the history of the bank where financing, HR, governance & structure are transformed to align with Agile and Lean ways of working. We both run and change the bank by using Agile and Lean principles.

Core Banking Programme is spearheading this transformation within Nordea.

When Nordea started the programme it was the largest core banking transformation in Europe and today it consists of 750+ people. Now we use the Scaled Agile Framework to run five Agile Release Trains in one large solution.
