There is nothing easier, in the short term, than doing nothing. Nothing more appealing than the Status quo. But purpose, innovation, and progress never occurs by sitting still.It happens when purpose is aligned to action. And for organisations, breaking down resistance to change, is one of the most important steps towards creating value for your customers - no matter what the future brings.

Agility, frameworks, and gaining a competitive advantage with Evan Leybourn

Agile in Action with Bill Raymond

Business agility represents the continuous and purposeful change you make to deliver more value to your customers and gain a competitive edge. Very often, we use frameworks that guide how to be more agile. The list of frameworks is endless and full of acronyms, like SCRUM, XP, SaFe, and many more. It can be tempting to select a framework that looks good and start using it. However, there are downsides to that approach. In today's podcast, I speak with Evan Leybourn, Co-founder and CEO of the Business Agility Institute. We talk about why agility can increase revenues, improve team performance, and retain employees. Evan shares the approach you should take to define what agility means to your organization and balance that with the various frameworks available to you.

#46 - Business Agility - Evan Leybourn

Tech Lead Journal

“Business agility is a set of organizational capabilities, behaviors, and ways of working that afford your business the freedom, flexibility, and resilience to achieve its purpose, no matter what the future brings." Evan Leybourn is the founder and CEO of Business Agility Institute. In this episode, Evan shared about the current maturity of agile adoption and how agile has matured over the years by looking at 3 different agility categories, including business agility. Evan then explained further what business agility means, and his interesting story of why he started the Business Agility Institute. He then explained in-depth the concept of business agility domains, a model comprising 12 different interacting domains across four dimensions centred around the customer. We then discussed his theory of agile constraints and Evan shared his insights on why he thinks Agile and DevOps transformations are currently hitting diminishing returns and how we should address it by continuously finding the constraint to solve. Evan also touched on and shared about the recent Business Agility Institute research finding on why many agile organizations unconsciously fail to embed and support Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DEI) within the organizations.

Keynote - Management, you're doing it wrong - Evan Leybourn

Festival Agile Trends 2021

In this presentation, I will share both my observations of this false journey towards management, the problems it causes inside organisations (micro-management, presenteeism, ‘hustle porn’, risk avoidance, and death by meetings), and finally what you can do about it. After all, management is a skill and, like all skills, can be learned, practiced, and improved.-------------Todos los vídeos del Festival Agile Trends en: https://lk.autentia.com/3d5nL7d¡Conoce Autentia!-Twitter: https://goo.gl/MU5pUQ-Instagram: https://lk.autentia.com/instagram-LinkedIn: https://goo.gl/2On7Fj/-Facebook: https://goo.gl/o8HrWX
