In this 80-minute interactive session, participants explore agility from two perspectives—why organisations around the world are aspiring to be agile, and what it means for leaders who must themselves adapt to a more agile style of leadership.  

Via case scenarios and video, participants look at companies such as Netflix that enjoy a strategic advantage because of their agility as well as at other companies whose lack of agility has led to failure.  Participants size up their own organisations, identifying actions that will make them more agile.  They then focus on the role agility plays in their own leadership.  

They first explore differences between traditional leadership and agile leadership and learning that the latter requires more cross-functional collaboration, constant scanning of the environment, continuous learning, and accepting change as the norm.  They then develop a plan to build their personal agility and thus become more agile leaders. 

  • Explain the strategic advantages enjoyed by agile organisations
  • Describe the key characteristics that define the agile organisation
  • Contrast the traditional approach to leadership with the approach called for in agile organisations
  • Build  your own personal agility
