Speaker: Peter Borsella, CEO, Big Orange Square; President, Winnow Management

Peter has discovered that his favorite aspect of his career is seeing organizations, products, and lives transformed. Opportunities for this transformation abound, all the way from the executive level struggling with understanding true agility, down to the delivery person struggling with the details of a new test procedure, and he loves working through it all. He has found few things that beat the satisfaction of being part of a creative problem-solving team, and his agile journey has been in progress now for almost 20 years doing just that.

 

 

Presentation Topic: Twice the Product in Half the Time: the Promise of Agility

 

Agility is no longer an alternative way of working, but has become the way organizations create and deliver value. Yet, there is still significant misunderstandings around what it means to be agile and how to go about practicing it. A 2018 Harvard Business Review article found that “around four-fifths of survey respondents say they’re using agile in some form,” but “less than a fifth of firms gave themselves the top rating in achieving…its full potential.”
Could it be that there is still a lack of understanding around this important topic? Join us for an opportunity to explore and validate core expectations of agility and the associated practices. You’ll hear practical explanations of these major areas of impact:

  • a brief history and definition of agility and the most common practices
  • how to maintain quality and manage risk in an agile environment
  • the most common misunderstandings about agility

Bring your tough agile problems and let’s discuss how to move forward!
