Survival for many organizations requires increased enterprise agility. To achieve it, organizations need a fundamentally new approach to organizational change: Agile Change. Agile Change provides a sturdy scaffolding from which organizations can transform into organizational structures with responsive operating models, dynamic and effective ways of working, and a sustainable capability to adjust as conditions demand. This experiential presentation will engage attendees in activities that help illuminate the new agile relationship organizations are forming to organizational change. In small groups, the audience will explore concepts and gain an appreciation of the shift in organizational change management from a time-boxed decision-lagging effort to sustainable distributed decision-enabling activities.
