It seems there is a consensus among thought leaders that business agility is the next biggest thing. There are many definitions of business agility but in its purest form, it is the ability of an organization to create a resilient and dynamic system of value delivery. The keyword being “system.” As change agents, we are well beyond removing impediments for scrum teams. If we want to have an everlasting impact, we need to facilitate the exposure and resolution of systemic impediments. This is a daunting task that requires strategy and support. I believe in the power of data to help tell a story and influence leadership action. Agile “self-assessments” is a simple way to collect that data directly from the people doing the work! We are not talking about the traditional boring team assessments, but rather a new modern-day approach that will help you highlight systemic impediments and make a real everlasting change. Join us to learn about the innovative approach change agents are using to help organizations achieve the benefits of business agility!
