Improving Organizational Agility – Virtual course
March 2, 2021 - March 3, 2021
I’m giving my popular workshop Improving Organizational Agility as an online virtual course on March 2 and 3, 2021, in collaboration with Agile Actors #learning. Sign up.
Many organizations are going through agile transformations. They are implementing Scrum or Kanban and using large-scale agile frameworks like Lean, SAFe, LeSS or DAD, hoping to better serve the IT needs of the business and to develop products that satisfy their customer’s needs. Unfortunately, those transformations do not always live up to the agile promise of delivering better products, faster, at lower costs.
