Business Agility: First Steps - with Evan Leybourn
Traditional business models are struggling to keep up with the needs of the modern economy. While business has never been predictable, technological and cultural change is occurring at faster rates than ever before. In this climate, modern enterprises live or die on their ability to adapt – which is where Business Agility comes in. Business Agility provides a context for organisations to embrace change; changing how to think, changing how to work and changing how to interact.
Whether you’ve heard of Holocracy or Teal Organisations; it seems that lean and agile business models are gaining interest across different business sectors. This webinar will provide engaging and enlightening stories of business agility; from lean startups to large enterprises. These will be reinforced with practical approaches for the design and leadership of teams, divisions and businesses across the domains of the business agility model http://theagiledirector.com/article/2017/05/25/domains-of-business-agility-v2/
