EA Forum - Cape Town
During his EA Forum presentation two years ago, Josef Langerman described the journey Standard Bank undertook called “New Ways of Working”. He focused mainly on Agile and Lean management, with a special emphasis on the cultural changes needed to drive these changes.
At this month’s EA Forum, Josef has returned to share his experiences at Standard Bank during the past two years. His presentation will focus on business transformation and the role that Programme and Portfolio management have played. He will also touch on culture as the key differentiator, and the role that Enterprise Architects can play in guiding the organisation.
Josef Langerman is the Executive Group Head for Technology Strategy, Architecture and Transformation at Standard Bank. In this role he is responsible for the transformation of Standard Bank Group Technology into a high velocity, customer-centric organisation. This entails changing the ways of working to Lean, DevOps and Agile methodologies, as well as establishing the cultural and industry communities that will enable this large scale transformation. Josef holds a PhD in Computer Science and is a Professor of Practice at the University of Johannesburg where he teaches Honours and Master level courses in Technology Management.
