Based on 12 years of experience in numerous transformations, some small, some mammoth, some successful and some not, this talk will outline how to craft a successful Agility transformation from scratch to finish.

The talk will address the following million-dollar questions:

  • Once you’ve decided to transform, where do you start and how to plan and setup the transformation for success?
  • What are the parts of a business or organization that need to be transformed? Think of the 3 ‘S’s – Structure, Systems and Style.
  • What is the target transformation state?
  • How do you manage the transformation and tackle the issue of scale?
  • What to do when the organizational antibodies come for you?
  • What does success look like and how do you measure it?
  • When should you stop and get the hell out?
