When the word digitization is used, the hairs on the back of the neck of many an employee baulk and colleagues flinch inwardly. A Bitkom study shows that there is no reason for nervousness.

The study "Don't Panic" by the ICT industry association Bitkom shows that the so-called digital transformation is already being lived and developed in German companies - in peace and without panic. According to their own assessment, most companies are on the right track when it comes to digitization: more than 40 percent state that they already sometimes, mostly or always use agile methods. In 2018, only about a third of the companies saw it that way. The number of "agility deniers" has also changed dramatically.
