This session is a mix of hands-on workshop and a presentation on AgileChakra: The Wheel of High Performing Organisations.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel or circle”. AgileChakra is a metaphor used to summarise the core capabilities and the competency areas that make an organisation truly agile and high-performing in today’s times, and to explain how the organisations need to ride on this wheel to survive in today’s competitive world. AgileChakra encapsulates all the frontiers which form an organisation, e.g. culture, technical capabilities, product and service offerings, governance, leadership, etc. and stresses on how an Agile Mindset is a key ingredient across all areas.
AgileChakra has evolved over the years based on the presenters’ interactions with organisations at various stages of Agile Transformation and is highly inspired by the great work of the Agile and Technology evangelists across the globe. The AgileChakra is NOT an attempt to re-invent the wheel, but an endeavour to define the required capabilities of a high performing organisation in a simplified manner. The AgileChakra will continue to evolve as the technology and agile landscapes change.
AgileChakra has been exhibited in internal organisational forums and internal conferences during the presenters’ appointment as Agile Coaches, and has helped immensely in coming up with strategies for Agile Transformation. It has not yet experienced the public limelight like Agile India.
