Webinar – Applying Agile principles to strategy
In the run up to this year’s conference Patrick Hoverstadt a speaker in the Strategy track, will join us all for a webinar on 20 September at 11am.
Patrick’s experience lies within the strategy realm, specialising in systemic approaches, working on organisational design and change across both the private and public sectors. Expanding on his experience, Patrick went on to writing books which are used in masters programmes across the world.
Patterns of Strategy is a radically different approach to understanding and formulating business strategy.
In this webinar we’ll talk about some of the principles that underpin both “Agile” and “Agile strategy,” what some genuinely Agile strategy approaches look like and how they work.
Agile as a way of tackling IT development came out of a frustration with the high failure rate of traditional waterfall methods. There’s a parallel with strategy, conventional strategy fails the vast majority of the time and to some extent, it fails for the same reasons that waterfall tended to. Like traditional IT projects, traditional strategy assumes that we can set requirements at the start, follow a linear path without deviating and that the world will stay stable for us until we’ve finished delivering. Of course, for strategy that is almost never true, which is why it almost never works.
