How to work with us…

Do you use or are you planning to use Agile approaches in your organization? We are currently looking for collaborators and are interested in working with you on challenges that you may be facing.

Research Collaboration

SARN is currently setting up a consortium of agile companies and universities. The goal of the consortium is to get a better understanding of Agile and its effects through independent research. Therefore, the members of the consortium will jointly agree on the research questions. These questions will be addressed in a common research project. To finance the project, SARN will apply for funding at national funding organizations (CTI, SNF, etc.).

Some of the research topics that interest us are:

  • to get a better understanding of Agile transformation processes and how to improve them
  • to understand the challenges of Agile and how to face them
  • to understand the influence of Agile practices on the success of Agile projects
  • to understand the influence of Agile on the organization culture

The Swiss Agile Research Network will provide your organisation with an analysis of the challenges you are facing and will structure that challenge. You will also receive a summary of suggestions for improvement based on existing literature and research and an unbiased perspective on which suggestions to adopt. Furthermore, the Swiss Agile Research Network will evaluate the changes you decide to implement. Overall the whole approach provides an opportunity to learn and to reflect on different perspectives of the challenge.
