Being Agile in Business – Belinda Waldock

Session Type: Presentation

Session Length: 45 minutes

Target Audience & Level of Experience: Leaders and all roles involved in driving Agile in an organisation

Session Description: In order to become a truly agile organisation its people must embrace and apply agile thinking at every level of the business. The primary driver for successful agile adoption within a business is the level of buy in achieved amongst its teams. It is not enough to implement structures and tools into day to day practices, the organisation must learn to listen to what agile tells them and act upon it in order to sustain buy in both to the method and their commitment to the ambitions of the business. Belinda shares her experience of introducing agile to an array of SME businesses from project management through to improving the strategic agility of their business models to evoke growth. The session will report on their journeys of adoption and the impact upon people and interactions within those businesses. She will explore what worked well, what could work better, what barriers they faced and the results achieved sharing case studies and the new tools and materials adapted from agile that create a Business Management methodology for Business Agility
