New Agile, Innovation & Ways of Working
Agile has been hacked since its very beginning. The growing demand from large corporations to transform with the help of agile coaches has pushed toward a lower impact. Agile practitioners have replaced agile makers.
Our ambition at Astrakhan is to help corporations succeeding in agile methods, with the right level of skills and mindset. NEW AGILE is our commitment in order to deliver a renewed and modern value proposition that thrives innovation through new ways of working.
An agile enterprise makes rapid responses to unexpected changes. Change can be daunting when people first need private-professional balance and a modern workplace where it feels great to work. Agile reveals talents and helps talents do a better job.

This has allowed to build a package of serious games and other facilitation tools that are regularly updated and improved to ensure the high quality of our interventions when facing our clients. Moreover, Astrakhan has within its team an artistic direction that contributes when faced with a more demanding assignment in terms of quality of design, visual management or graphic identity.
