Digital Factory on a global scale

UBS is on an endavor to roll out a scalled agile setup globally in Switzerland, India and APAC region. This affects about 5000 people. The goal is to serve better local business across the world while maintaining a common operating model. A scaled agile setup enables a on one side the agile benefits of team empowerment, experimentation and client focused delivery in a flexible and lean manner, while on the other side having common ground for collaboration between locations amongst business and IT. Setting up a global scale operating model requires sound preparation and willingness to resolve upcoming issues as you go. Not everything can be perfect right from the beginning. This requires patience and dedication to remove upcoming impediements. With this approach UBS is not changing the work of specific project teams, but the entire delivery organization.
