Personal Agility - A framework beyond frameworks

In today's busy world, you have more things to do, than time to get them done. Deciding upon the priorities is a big question. 'What is important to you, and what is urgent?'

To be able to reflect upon what is important and discard the things that are of least value to you is an important aspect of being happy and efficient, be it at work or in your personal life. The talk, ‘Personal Agility- A Framework Beyond Frameworks’ will provide you an insight to ensure that you do the right thing at the time. It will help you to focus and rethink on the values to be adapted in everyday life.

The talk will guide you through the ways to cultivate personal agility from my own experience, where I discovered my own personal agility when I got lost in a jungle in South Australia, few years back. What would you have done then, when you knew that you could not have failed in such an appalling situation?

I would be mapping these experiences and stories into an Agile Model, with a tint of Tuckman's stages of group development.
