The Alchemy of Enterprise Agility

Session Type: Workshop

Track: Transformation and Leadership 2

Hosted By: Stephen Grafton and Manav Mehan

What is your level of agility? Is your development Agile? Have you achieved an Agile IT? Are you delivering all of your business benefits? Have you reached the state of ultimate Organisational Agility?

Manav Mehan

Organisational Agility is a continuum where organisations have transformed to a fully “Responsive Enterprise”. Transforming to a responsive enterprise requires far wider thinking than simply changing the way IT develops software.

In this session Manav & Steve will share practical insights and experiences transforming large complex organisations – taking them on the journey to Organisational Agility. You will be able to assess your current level of Agile Maturity and the journey you can take to achieve higher levels of Enterprise Agility. This will help you establish the alchemy for achieving a responsive enterprise.

Stephen has been engaged in software development since 1984, when Agile was RAD and JAD. He’s had roles from developer in blue chip companies to VP of Solutions in a start-up. A few years ago he transitioned from making things happen, to helping others make things happen. At TCS, he helps lead the Advisory Group focussing on Agile transformation. He’ll tell you some of the things some consultants don’t quite get round to telling you.  He once did 5 minutes of stand up comedy that you can find on YouTube.

Manav is a leading Agile/Scrum Executive Coach/Consultant with a proven track record in global product development, business process transformation and change management. An established thought leader for ‘Scaling/Enterprise Agile with governance’, he was a finalist in the UK Agile Awards 2014 & 2013 for Best Agile Coach/Mentor and Most Valuable Agile Player.
