World Agility Forum
World Agility Forum: An Encounter with Reality
Companies are more threatened than ever by the changes in technology, markets, and complexity. Agility is seen as a potential savior, enabling companies to master the challenges of the 21st century. How do you achieve real agility with so many cheap, tempting and fake imitations? What does it mean for executives? How can you get past the hype to achieve genuine benefit for you, your company and your customers?
The Forum explores Agile and agility through different perspectives. What works and what doesn’t? Intended to provoke your thinking, walk away with insights that enable reflection on your own mindset and need for agility!
