"Agile" made the leap from software development to organizations—what leap can you make next with it? The old ways of the rigidly structured workforce and work rules don’t cut it anymore. In the brave new world of the twenty-first century, things change fast… really fast!
In this session, Jim will lay the groundwork of Agile essentials that a change agent needs to be familiar with. Bruce will set the stage of "Where will Design Thinking and Agility for organizations go next?" Cases of global and local organizations will illustrate agile challenges and interventions. We'll each bounce around our own Agile challenges and opportunities. Where can you next apply and/or push the boundaries of Agile?
As an application exercise, we'll consult as a group on an Agile challenge that one participant faces.
