Business agility is the ability of a business to adapt rapidly and cost efficiently in response to changes in the business environment. Business agility will provide a significant competitive advantage, but achieving it will require organizational intelligence, cross-functional collaboration, motivation, courage and leadership. Many organizations have adopted an Agile approach to project or product delivery, but few have achieved the level of business agility needed to capitalize on the demands and opportunities that come with the increasing amount of change in today’s marketplace. This session will go beyond the boundaries of teams and sprints to expose the most pervasive constraints that commonly prevent businesses from achieving agility. This interactive discussion will emphasize business agility from idea to implementation, including: thin/vertical slicing of work, continuous customer focus, impact evaluation, product ownership, business intelligence, and delivery considerations.
