Step change: How to thrive in the age of complexity

As digital, globalization and social changes accelerate to create more unpredictability and turbulence, business executives realize that the ways of strategizing and working introduced a hundred years ago have reached their limit. They want their business to become more agile but they either do not understand very well what agility is, they fear it, or they grapple with its limitations and implementation challenges. For example, a frequent misconception is that agile methodologies are necessary only for software programming or that agility means chaos and no hierarchy.

This Discovery Event is meant to equip you with new perspectives and tools for strategizing and redesigning your organization for greater agility to thrive in this new business environment. We will clarify that agile methods are not equal to agile management.


• The power of strategic agility
• Aligning the organization: starting with agile
• Aligning the organization: when agility becomes organizational design

Target audience...

• This Discovery Event is open to business and functional senior executives who need greater organizational agility and think about the impact on their strategizing and leadership style
