Chris and Vanessa combine their unique backgrounds and experience in business agility to show how growth of agile in organisations has become over complicated through its industrialisation. By reviewing the current business landscape and highlighting lessons learnt from nature, they will demonstrate how nature has already solved some of the problems we face today.

The next evolution of business, marked by unprecedented growth and and economic uncertainty, will be a case of survival of the fittest. The ability for businesses to inspect and adapt will be critical. How organisations go about this will be critical - either they can continue down a path of artificial hit and miss strategies, or harness the the blueprints laid down by nature combined with agility mindset to continuously evolve and realise meaningful outcomes.

About the Speakers:

  • Chris Webb, experienced agilist, created the one of most hated diagrams in Agile (the Agile london tube map) for exactly the reason you hate it: to show how complex and segmented the agile landscape has become. Chris will explore the questions such as why the agile landscape has become so complex? How did we get here? And where do we go from here.
  • Vanessa Sequeira, a passionate organisational development specialist, environmentalist and agilist, will explore the links between natural systems: biomimicry and ecological cycle and how this can be applied to organisational systems and the evolution of agile.
