Executive Leadership Agility – The Bottom Line

What’s the bottom line for business agility?  Is it a buzzword, fad, cliché? Or is it a concrete approach capable of transforming organizational effectiveness, customer satisfaction, employee engagement and the bottom line for your business? It all depends. The potential benefits can be huge.
Sustaining these benefits requires more than delegating implementation to a few product teams.  It requires leadership across the enterprise.  The course is designed to both build a shared understanding of what business agility means from an executive perspective, and to spark a deep discussion of what is needed to ignite and empower agility across an organization.

This course gives executives and leaders the bottom line on business agility.  Through facilitated discussions, peer-to-peer conversation, and interactive exercises – participants will explore the essential why, what, and how of leading business agility.

Spoiler alert – it’s not a “one-size-fits-all” plug and play framework.  This workshop explores how business agility empowers teams and organizations to flourish in the midst of change by taking a people-first approach to work.
