SWARMING, working in a digital age



“Swarming is a new word coming in digital transformation as a word for initiatives. Swarming is a natural behaviour when birds leave their nests to experiment with some things, such as migration, nesting, and so on". Our guest speaker - Pierre E. Neis.

In today's fast-paced business, technology and digital era, projects and products are expected to be completed rapidly to a high standard to delight the customers and end-users.   

The idea of Swarming in agile is for several teams coming together to work on projects to eliminate delays and low quality of work by coordinating teams to work on priority tasks to accomplish results. The concept has been around for over a decade. Agile teams with various skills work collectively on the highest priority and high-value items to complete tasks quickly and efficiently to reach common goals.
