Presentation Details:

Implementing an Agile approach has helped transform countless technology organizations into becoming more productive, efficient and business value driven environments. That has catapulted the groundswell for Agile disciplined execution to staggering heights! Yet the introduction and adoption of an agile approach continues to be allusive and extremely difficult for any organization. Additionally, non-technology/software teams are expressing a desire to have more agility within hyper matrixed global enterprises. In October of 2016 we took you through the IHG journey showcasing our successes (and learnings) while partnering with LeadingAgile. This presentation will further clarify our salient maturation, growth and incredible insight into business agility.
