How agile are the projects in practice?
‘In practice, agile methods come under scrutiny and are often combined with classic elements to form a hybrid approach. In our experience, it’s worth fighting for an agile method, as this maximises the success of the project. It’s our job to stop company representatives with a more traditional background from falling back into old habits.’

What makes the approach taken by SALT AND PEPPER Consulting so special?
‘Many companies are uncertain about how to respond to the digitalisation of the economy. We are able to assist our clients with two key challenges; we help them develop new ideas and test/implement these ideas in an agile manner. Working with the engineers and programmers within the SALT AND PEPPER Group, we can often accompany this journey from the initial idea to practical implementation. This benefits our clients, who learn to regard digitalisation as an opportunity rather than a risk.’

What are the success factors for digitalisation in industry?
‘The main thing is not to start with the technology and then go looking for a problem to solve. Technology is not an end in itself, but rather a basis for innovative solutions that add value and actually pay off. Therefore, we always focus on the critical levers and challenges for both the company and their customers.’

What does industry expect from digitalisation?
‘Digitalisation is regarded as hugely significant in pretty much every sector. By contrast, companies are often more vague about the specific changes that digitalisation will cause. We help our clients identify risks at an early stage, avert these risks and seize opportunities as they arise.’

How can companies become more agile overall?
‘In order to make a firm more agile, it’s important to make the nebulous term “agility” more tangible for them. This means pinpointing what makes agile companies different from traditional ones in terms of their direction, culture and organisational structure. In turn, this allows employees to determine what “agility” means to them and systematically work towards this goal.’

Why is it so hard for companies to develop and implement ideas for innovations?
‘For many companies, pushing back their familiar boundaries is a big challenge. External support can help them to see what’s “on the other side”. Implementation, on the other hand, is often held back by rigid organisational structures that allow little room for manoeuvre.’
