Welcome to the Business Agility Meetup for DC, Maryland and Virginia!
I've been reading about this thing called Business Agility. I'm an Agile geek (I drank the Kool-Aid a long time ago) and this is the next step beyond Agile. It's applying the principles behind Agile and Lean to enhance the business for a competitive advantage. Companies evolve the ability to sense and respond to change, or better yet, MAKE the change.
In my day job, I encounter many companies who are being disrupted:
• One company at the top end of the market being threatened by a newer rival.
• A second company is experiencing a market shift threatening half its revenue.
• A third company is subject to whims of massive regulation.
• A fourth company is disrupting an emerging market and need to execute to stay ahead of the major players.
These customers all need Business Agility, so I'm starting some community around it.
This group is for Washington DC area Agile *and* Business evangelists, thought leaders and enthusiasts that are passionate about what's next with Agile and Lean. While this group is mostly for the DC area, we'll do road shows to Baltimore and Richmond!
Meetings are held bi monthly and are mainly discussions, workshops, or open space type sessions covering various topics about Business Agility. We'll start having meetings on the 2nd Tuesday night of a month and will be in a location that (hopefully) is metro accessible in the Washington DC/Arlington/Alexandria area.
*** NOTE: We are looking for meeting space.
Join us to learn from others about their Business Agility journey, or share your own experience on adopting or implementing Business Agility. Contact the organizer if you want to present at a future meeting.
