KickStart to Business Agility
You can’t do Agile without being agile. And being agile starts with an agile mindset. This programme takes a broad view of agile. We’ll focus on business agility - how agile works throughout an organisation, not confined to a project methodology.
You’ll work through ideas and practices ranging from the Business Agility Institute’s business agility model to Stephen Denning’s three laws of agile: the law of the small team; the law of the customer; and the law of the network. (We’re not sure they’re actual laws!)
We’ll include agile culture, innovation, lean and design thinking. All these combine to create a fresh approach to business agility.
The programme’s based on great ideas and theories. We’ve translated that thinking into action to help participants apply agile, be agile, and grow business agility in organisations.
