Our special guest speaker tonight: Andrea Tomasini, agile42, Berlin
The world is changing faster than we think, and most of the changes are driven by technology changes, directly or indirectly affecting macro economic. In such an environment what organizations need to survive and possibly outpace their competition, is the capability to adapt very quickly to changes, in more rigorous terms, organizations need to grow more resilient and possibly antifragile. This is the main reason why so many enterprises in the past 5 years have turned towards agility as an opportunity to gain more resilience. While there are well documented frameworks supporting agile within a development environment, there isn’t much out there that helps an organization to understand how to change, and what to change, in order to become more resilient, as a whole. ORGANIC Agility is a unique approach which combines the values and principles of the agile manifesto, with complexity thinking, and aims at enabling organizations to grow more resilient, and possibly outpace their competition.
In this session Andrea will introduce the foundation of ORGANIC Agility by presenting the 5 core principles, and how they have been successfully or not implemented by some well known organizations. The purpose is to share the approach, experience and collect feedback. The session will be a mixture of sharing, lecturing and interactive small exercises.
