The Business Agility & Development department is responsible for ensuring a long term competitive advantage for JYSK. The department is separated in two subsections:
Business Development plays a central role in setting the strategic direction and driving projects for our organisation's growth. Projects are determined by our strategy, are implemented across functional areas, and cover strategic, tactical, and operational levels. Typically, projects are sponsored by a member of our Executive Management Team.
Business Agility is overall responsible for JYSK’s agile transformation by defining and implementing an operating model build on Lean-Agile ways of working. The operating model is running across all business functions and IT, bridging both strategic, tactical and operational levels. Business Agility also covers Portfolio Management and Test Management.
In the Business Agility & Development department, you will work with all business units and IT on a strategic, tactical and operational level. We strive for high quality, strategic alignment and execution efficiency in JYSK’s digital journey.
Examples of tasks:
“In Business Agility we work with JYSK’s agile transformation, meaning we are working across IT and the business to secure fast delivery of solutions, bringing value to JYSK’s customers and our internal stakeholders.
Implementing agile ways of working and growing a lean-agile mindset in the individuals and teams in JYSK is challenging and exciting. Even though the agile approach differs from traditional retail mentality, the governing thoughts are supported by JYSK’s values and leadership principles. We have been working with agility at JYSK for the past few years and are now revisiting our framework to align with SAFe (the Scaled Agile Framework). Our Executive Management Team are invested in the process and we have high ambitions for taking JYSK agility to the next level, making JYSK fit for the future.”
