• [Partner Event]: ACCELERATING INNOVATION WITH ORGANISATIONAL AGILITY

    This is a free event, but you must RSVP here: https://ga.co/InnovationOA Modern work is more complex than ever. Solving the everyday problems we all encounter often requires mobilising a distributed network of people, data and software. This isn’t always a simple task. On top of this, increasingly demanding customers require companies to deliver products and services faster than ever. This all requires greater levels of collaboration. In the 20th century, economists compared organisations to machines, with a series of predictable inputs and outputs. In today’s world, successful organisations are shifting to behave more like organisms. Organisations that flourish are more sensitive to changes and adapt with speed and agility. They are resilient to market pressure because rather than just execute well, these organisations can reinvent themselves. They can recognise opportunities better and take advantage of them faster. According to McKinsey, “Agile organisations have a 70% chance of being in the top quartile of organisational health, the best indicator of long term performance.” So how do organisations become agile? In short, they form teams and allow those teams to flourish, they use the latest communication tools and pursue a shared vision and strategy. Agenda 6pm Check ins, grab a drink! 6:10 pm - Welcome from GA & Intros 6:15pm - Fireside Chat with Bear 7:10pm - Audience Q&A 7:30pm - Drinks and mingling 8pm - Finish
