Topic: Pragmatic Agility
Organizations of all types and sizes are seeking to become more adaptive and responsive in the face of growing change and uncertainty. An entire industry has grown around “Agile” including certifications, frameworks, training, consulting, books, and more. But, does buying into this trend translate into increased business agility?
Join enterprise agile coach Kevin Callahan for a conversation around pragmatic agility. Specific topics will include: defining success for increasing business agility, critical mindset shifts, organizational and systemic impediments, and more. The evening will not be a lecture from a set of slides, rather an unfolding exploration based on participant questions and agenda-less facilitation approaches.
