Masterclass London: Agile Methodology as a Business Transformation Tool – November 2018
Building an agile organisation
The Agile Methodology has revolutionised the way startup and software development companies operate. But agility is not just about better software, it’s about better business.
In recent years, more and more businesses have started to understand that Agile is more than a methodology – it’s an organisational transformation tool. Organisations from a wide variety of industries are now embracing its principles and transforming functions from marketing and human resources to finance and IT.
- But how can L&D leaders help their businesses embrace agility to create a learning culture that helps the organisation to move faster?
- How can the methodology support an ethos of continuous learning and customer-centricity?
- What’s the role of leadership development in an organisation looking to adopt the Agile Methodology?
These are some of the questions which HR and L&D leaders are invited to explore alongside our hosts Professor Ricardo Perez, Academic Director of the Master in Digital Business at IE Business School and Michael Skapinker, Contributing Editor at the Financial Times. This exclusive masterclass will cover, in a practical and dynamic way, the challenges and opportunities related to the implementation of the methodology.
