Business Agility Journeys - Enabling Through Simpler Alternative

In these times of rapid change, Business agility has become a buzzword for organizations to not only survive but also grow and thrive. Though often used, Business Agility has varied shades, and means different things for organizations. The approach for transformation towards business agility can also be unique to organizations and the context in which they operate.

      Mahadevan Periaswamy / Ashwin Aswatharam / Rajsekhar Janaswamy - Persona Poker Workshop

      90 Mins

      In any Change Initiative, Change is difficult because people resist it. Change leaders/ agents have to work with a variety of personalities. To make the change effective, these personalities must be influenced and aligned towards valuable outcomes. The first step, however, is to recognize the personalities along with their attributes. In this workshop we will use Personas to help identify approaches by adding a layer of real-world consideration into the conversations.

      Highlights of this workshop.

      • Understanding of personas.
