Agile working: why does it work in the energy sector?

Agile working helps you deal with rapidly changing priorities. This is perhaps the most well-known motive for going agile or wanting to become agile. These rapid changes in priorities pose a huge challenge to most utilities, but these challenges are the very fuel for the traditional energy sector to change now and this is where agile working can help.

What are major challenges within the energy sector

The energy sector is changing faster than ever. Innovations follow each other in rapid succession, customers become more demanding, startups and new developments make the market very dynamic. Many organisations find it difficult to deal with this, partly because the current way of working and how organisations are organised tends to slow this down rather than help them cope with the speed of change.

Therefore, one of the biggest challenges for many energy companies is to learn to respond faster and more effectively to change, put the customer first and be sensitive to what is happening in the environment. (Business) Agile working helps organisations embed this deeply into the way they work, so that the challenges and dynamics are embraced and supported.
