Agility is the ability to both create and respond to change in order to profit in a turbulent business environment (Jim Highsmith)

This workshop is aimed at technical leaders who need to interact with stakeholders across all areas of the organization, coping with the VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) environment that is the norm for businesses today.

Business Agility is the latest buzzword – what does it really mean? In this workshop Shane examines the underlying drivers and motivation for adopting agile approaches, explores what an agile mindset actually means and shows how the ideas embodied in the Agile Manifesto are applicable in areas of the organisation within and outside information technology and how they help organizations lead and profit from disruptive change.

The session draws on current management theories and emerging practice, it explores how ideas from different sources complement and enhance each other to enable real agility and better outcomes.
