Business Agility with Scaled Agile Thinking

Session Overview

Business agility requires scaled lean and agile thinking, more than just scaled lean and agile practices. Change must be bootstrapped in order to manage the tension between the need to align the organization to the strategic commitment of becoming an agile business and the aim to create organization-wide engagement. From the top down, this requires new ways of teaching and coaching that instil new ways of thinking more than just doing. From the bottom up, this new way of thinking must inspire (contagious) action, not just talk.
