Internship – Strategy Agile


Increasingly IT organizations use Agile or DevOps delivery methods and organization structures to deliver value quickly. Work is no more defined in projects but in User Stories, Epics and Value Streams. Value is less defined in project business cases and more in “points” that are defined relative to other work packages. And the task of prioritizing work is shifting from IT to product owners and tribe leads. Roles often filled by business. This affects the ability of IT leadership (CIO’s) to manage the IT portfolio and budget and demonstrate realized value. We are looking for intern(s) (preferably) starting immediately, for a period of 6 months and 40 hours a week. Are you the perfect candidate?
