There has been lots of robust discussion around how Agile and Change can align within both communities. However, they already align so how do we maximize the benefits of this marriage? This talk will focus on how Agile and Change align so nicely and if you are considering “transforming” then how you leverage this marriage to ensure it lasts beyond the honeymoon period. We will discuss how Change and Agile don’t need to be retro fitted to work, with real life examples of how this has been applied in several different settings.

    There is often debate when setting up an Agile Capability Program where it should sit within the organisation. A lot of organisations align Agile programs with IT and so naturally they look for sponsorship within this area. Whilst this approach has pluses there are also minuses for this decision. This talk will focus on the HR led Agile Capability Uplift program within Synergy. We will focus on the role HR plays in driving agility and how this type of program lends itself nicely to being part of Human Resources. We will give live examples of how Agile and HR have worked to deliver a new way of working along with the structure and approach which is being used to embed it successfully.
