Webinar: “Business Agility Beyond Methods And Tools” with Lynda Girvan & Karim Harbott

We live in an extremely fast-paced and seemingly unpredictable world. New business models evolve, technology enables new ways of working and we face global opportunities and threats like never before.

Go into the executive suite of many organisations and you’ll hear people talking about the need for agility. However, whilst we may interpret that as a need for certain tools and methods, often what our business stakeholders are really after is business agility. The ability for a business or organisation to sense, analyse and respond quickly to change. This is a broader, more systemic set of capabilities. It certainly doesn’t just involve ‘putting everything in Jira and hoping for the best’.

So what is ‘business agility’, and why should we care? In this interactive discussion, you’ll have the opportunity to hear insight from two experts and also raise questions of your own. The session will be wide-ranging and will coverL

• What is ‘business agility’ and how does this differ from ‘agile methods of delivery’?
• How do organisations achieve agility?
• What are some of the common blockers?
• What role does culture play (and how can we cultivate a culture of agility)?

Don’t Blame People, Fix The System

If you’ve ever been responsible and accountable for a project yet have no control of the systems and processes that govern that project, you will know how frustrating and at times, unjust, that may be. Karim Harbott walks us through a time when he experienced exactly that as a Project Manager, and how Agile Leadership focuses instead on removing impediments, improving the system, and empowering people to ensure the highest quality product/service is created, improved, and delivered for both customers and project stakeholders.
