Understanding the ask for Agility from a Digital Lens
Leading Agility in an organization today needs a deep understanding of the factors that are driving this need for Agility. This has many labels - the preferred one these days is Digital Transformation. Rather than define exactly what Digital Transformation is (some say Data, others User centricity, yet others swear by Cloud and Mobile), we will focus on how all these Digital changes are impacting businesses, and how in turn they are demanding Agility (both from Business and IT - and we will also see that these lines are blurring!).
We will take the example of 4 companies - two of them in the Fortune 500, and two smaller - and follow them on their journey to Agility, and use the Cynefin framework to understand the ask for Agility, and the right approach to achieve the effectiveness and efficiency needs of each situaiton. These will also illustrate the hardships and tradeoffs needed for this journey, and by the end of the session, the audience will have a clear understanding of how we can align the need with the right approach to Agility.
