When thinking about agile methodologies, the UN and its affiliates are usually not the first places that come to mind. However, the need of the UN and other international organizations to fulfill their mandate in a context of limited resources and to respond to an ever changing and increasingly complex environment in an efficient, effective and flexible manner requires the adoption of contemporary leadership paradigms and methodologies. It should therefore not come as a surprise that one can find pockets of Agile in international organizations too. Some of these agile ‘pioneers’ got together in a workshop to discuss how to further benefit from agile methods and how to apply them to areas outside IT and software development in international organizations. This paper summarizes the main findings of the workshop and what the way forward of this initiative might look like. By Philipp Amann, Joep Winkels and Thomas Spielhofer.
