Would you pay to see LeBron James stretch?  Neither would we.  Agility is one component of his repertoire, alongside strength, power, skill, and competitiveness.  Organizations are demanding more of the IT function as all industries look to technology as a competitive advantage.  Being able to respond to change is extremely important, but is that all it takes to win?  In this session, we’ll tell you how to take your organization beyond agility and become athletic.
