Transform the Corporate Ecosystem for Enterprise Agility

location_city Washington DC schedule Oct 24th 01:00 - 01:45 PM EDT place Ballroom D

You have made great progress at the team level with Agile, but your company still does not feel nimble and responsive.  What is wrong, and what can you do about it?

In this talk we show how executives and senior leaders can transform their organization/company to create a truly Agile Enterprise, by transforming corporate functions and enterprise shared services.  

The corporate ecosystem outside of teams must be transformed to achieve enterprise agility, but it is beyond the scope/authority of team members, managers, and consultants to make these necessary changes; these transformations can only be done by senior leaders and executives.  From an executive's viewpoint we will describe the nature of the corporate ecosystem outside of teams and how - if properly transformed - enterprise services can be the missing link between team-level results and real company-wide agility.
