“The business agility behind a fictional band that topped real world charts” | Michael Robillard

Download Slides

How did a virtual band top the Billboard chart for World Digital Songs? Was it a coincidence? Was it a one-time wonder? None of the above. Instead, it was the unexpected (yet desired!) result of building a true foundation of business agility to operate in a world where we place our players firmly in the center of our universe.

This talk by Michael Robillard shares the story behind the band, including:

  • How the Copernican Revolution that informs a new mindset for business agility
  • Exploring the interplay between top-down strategy and bottom-up ideas
  • Describing the implementation of key components of business agility at Riot Games
  • Explaining why business agility is a journey that relies on what we call “the grind”
  • The importance of learning through experimentation rather than a framework, model, or methodology
