Success with Business Agility

2021 is the year of “business agility.” Everyone wants to get the advantages of agility across every functional domain of the business.

But wait, Not so fast: how exactly is this achieved? Who has actually DONE it? What are the preconditions for success?

Is success even possible?

The typical approach of attempting to scale SOFTWARE agility include: applying rigid frameworks, assuming one-size-fits-all; and imposition of change.

Is it a good idea to perpetuate these patterns when attempting agility across every functional area of the enterprise?

The answer may surprise you.

In this session we will look at:
1. The challenges of basic team-level software agility
2. What has to be true to scale software agility across the enterprise? (The answer provides clues on how to achieve enterprise-wide business agility.)
3. Using flexible PATTERNS instead of rigid PRACTICES to achieve Business Agility
4. An introduction to the Eight Patterns of Open Business Agility from the Open Leadership Network.

Everyone who participates in this session receives a set of PDF checklists and tools for starting down the path of achieving agility across the whole business: legal, operations, HR, Sales, Marketing and more.

In addition, everyone participating will get a 50% discount on the upcoming class: The Eight Patterns of Open Business Agility from the Open Leadership Network
