The Business Agility Institute launched a chapter in Portugal during the Experience Agile Conference 2019.

In a world of accelerating change, increasing complexity, rapidly changing technology, digitization and the internet, many organizations are still locked in the slow-moving, top- down, bureaucratic practices and processes of 20th century bureaucracy. They are finding it difficult to sense and respond to disruptive shifts in the marketplace. Their very capacity to survive, let alone thrive, is in question.

On October 1st, we had a presence of some of the resident council members for a brief presentation and discussion, led by Hugo Lourenço, the Chairman and with Evan Leybourn, founder and CEO of Business Agility Institute.
