Agility Today 2021 – Public Sector Agility Accelerator

My workshop with Julian Smith (no relation) from Agility Today 2021 called “Public Sector Agility Accelerator” is available on Slideshare.

Today ‘agile’ is no longer just a buzzword. From building spacecraft to manufacturing, some of the most complex and largest organisations in the world are using agile ways of working to deliver better outcomes, respond to change, improve quality, foster more productive and happier teams, and reduce risk.

This hands-on and interactive session is aimed at helping public sector organisations build capability to support agile ways of working, from policy development through to service design and delivery.

Deepti Jain and the team did an excellent job putting together this month long festival and it was also a pleasure to be part of the Advisory Board.
