Evidence is abundantly clear* that agile organisations are more profitable, and that the projectization of work is occurring at pace. These are combining into am emerging new operations where projects and business-as-usual are fully integrated. Especially in sector disruptor companies who are gaining competitive edge over older, non-agile businesses.
The value from these is clear, but how to achieve that value is not well understood and agility initiatives often fail expensively. Adrian will separate fact from fiction to outline what project agility really looks like. He will then show what an organisation needs to do to evolve project agility, both inside projects and outside in their organisational hinterland.
The goal is value from creating a landscape in which project agility can thrive.
