Catherine Drury

Agile Coach, Roche Australia

Using Agile to spearhead change in the healthcare industry

Healthcare is changing rapidly, even more so now in the time of a pandemic. But how does an organisation like Swiss biotech, Roche, get ahead of the game and be the change maker? They take the unprecedented and bold move to be the first in the biotech industry to go Agile.

Join Cat and Stuart from Roche Australia as they share the unique way the Australian arm of the business has transformed including a new approach to business planning, customer engagement, organisational structure and ways of working. They’ll share the journey so far, their inspiration, their learnings and the positive impact already being experienced with partners for Australian patients.
