Making Organisational Agility a Reality

 

Abstract

 

The case for organisational agility has been made. The top 10% of businesses by financial performance are 30% more likely to display five agile characteristics:

  • centre on their customers

  • speed up time to value

  • design for simplicity

  • build to evolve

  • liberate their people.

 

But achieving organisational agility is hard. It confront teams and leaders with totally new ways of working. For this reason, three in five organisations struggle to embed change at scale.

 

This presentation will show how to overcome the common barriers to success and achieve agility in practice. We will challenge the common misconceptions about agility, and reveal the surprising secrets to success. Covering examples from a large number of organisations, attendees will learn the necessities needed to make long-lasting organisational agility a reality.
