Is Your Organisation Agile-Ready? How to Apply Principles of Agile in Complex Environments

In a world of complexity and shifting priorities, it’s important to be nimble and able to adapt to rapidly changing environments.

But what does that look like in practice and how can it be achieved?

This event delves into the challenges that large organisations face on their journey towards agile transformation.

Providing real-world examples, our speakers will cover:

  • The challenges and lessons learnt when adopting agile methods
  • New opportunities which are presented when applying agile principles in scalable and complex environments
  • Pitfalls and tips for dealing with changes during the process of becoming agile

Spoiler: there are no golden bullets.
