The difference between Operational and Strategic agility – the promise of Agile? – Biase De Gregorio

Few organisations have been able to achieve the desired outcome of business agility (Strategic agility – creating new markets with new products that reach new customers, i.e. market-creating innovation).  If the Agile movement is only about creating great workplaces for software developers (also important!) but doesn’t generate better business outcomes, its life expectancy won’t be long.

The talk will focus on the key principles that can be applied to an organisation throughout the value chain (both IT and Business) and also a view of what an Agile operating model will look like, in order to provide organisations with a strategic advantage.
