You want to increase organisational agility and flow across your large, traditional, organisation. Organisations are complex adaptive systems, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. This talk, which is based on lessons learnt from leading agility at scale across a 320+ year old organisation with 80,000 people in 40 countries, shares an approach to enterprise transformation which appeals to intrinsic motivation, is invitation over imposition, has a clear focus on outcomes and is context and framework agnostic. You will leave with an approach which you can try when you get back to the office.
