Topic:  Agility…is it just a Dream or can it be a Reality?

Most organizations are chasing this dream of “agility” but very few achieve it...or do they? Agile statistics show organizations are reporting a consistent increase in Agile adoption over the last few years. In a global survey conducted by Forbes in 2017 of more than 500 senior executives, 92% said they believe organizational agility is critical to business success. However, we are seeing common themes regarding obstacles adopting and realizing the benefits of agile around organizational culture and resistance to change.  During this presentation, we will explore what it really means to be agile, why organizations are struggling with their agile transformations, understand the part that everyone needs to play when it comes to a transformation and patterns of success for making the agile dream a reality.
