The world is changing more rapidly than ever before and organisations of every size are struggling to remain relevant in the eyes of their customers. The simple fact that the average lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century demonstrates that not all organisations are prepared for this new reality. It is only high-performing, adaptable and agile organisations that will leverage, lead and thrive in this ambiguous and unpredictable market. We call this business agility.

The problem with a statement like that is that there is no common definition of what business agility means. And that’s actually a good thing. In a dynamic and changing market trying to lock it down will defeat the very advantage it brings. Instead, I want you to start thinking of business agility as the common thread. An adaptable and sustainable narrative that binds & guides, rather than directs, us into the uncertain future.

This talk will share the state of business agility around the world. We'll look at the Domains of Business Agility, interspersed with case studies from 4 multinational organisation in both the banking and utilities sector .


Outline/Structure of the Case Study

Combination presentation and case study - https://prezi.com/view/kcIGZnCbNrlGxFkGaKUF/

Learning Outcome

Attendees will come away with a comprehensive understanding of the domains of business agility. A simple model consisting of 9 interacting domains across 3 dimensions and centered around the customer. Not a pyramid or matrix, but rather a model of agility where each of the domains in each of the dimensions are equal, necessary, interrelated, and dependent on each other.

The three domains under the Work Dimension govern how an agile organisation operates. From Technical Agility at the individual activity level, to Process Agility at the value stream level, and scaling to Enterprise Agility at the organisational level.

The Connections Dimension governs the relationships that form within and outside the organisation. Structural Agility that defines the relationships between individuals, teams & divisions, Leadership Agility that defines the relationship with authority and Market Agility that defines the relationship with our users and the wider market.

Finally, the Mindset Dimension is concerned with governing the key characteristics of an agile organisation; a Learning Mindset, a Collaboration Mindset and an Ownership Mindset.

    Tom Friend - Scrum To The Stars, a reflection of Iterative and Incremental Innovation in Aerospace

    45 Mins
    Case Study

    From the beginning of manned flight, to the first step on the moon, the patterns of agility have guided both the exploration of aviation and space. As complexity continues to increase and resources become scarcer, the use of Agile and similar methodologies within the aerospace industry has become indispensable.

    The history of aerospace extends over two thousand years, back to the earliest forms of aviation. From the story of Icarus to Chinese kites, mankind has been fascinated by flight. However, it has only been in the last few centuries that we have seen man take to the skies, beginning with balloons, then advancing to powered flight in 1903, followed closely by supersonic flight, spaceflight, and flight to other worlds.

    Please join us as we reflect on both the successes and failures throughout the course of man’s quest for the heavens. We will discover some common patterns that lead to failure in various events in aviation, as well as examine missions and flights that met with success, and apply these lessons to our Agile toolbox as we look to replicate success in future endeavors.
