  About the conference

The leading conference for authentic stories and great storytellers on business agility; anything from agile outside IT, organisational design and product innovation to next-gen leadership.

Business Agility 2018 is an intense 2-day conference focusing on agile outside IT, including its applications in organisational design, product innovation, and next-gen leadership. We bring together the greatest speakers and practitioners of business agility to share their experiences and the benefits their organisations have gained from exploring new and agile practices. We will host insightful and authentic talks and workshops in one of the premier venues in New York City. Our goals are to:

  • bring the local and international business agility community together in a friendly, educational and fun environment
  • increase the density of connections among the community, and
  • exchange and explore ideas between professionals.

We're trying something different with the conference. The conference will be highly interactive - a combination of keynotes and facilitated learning "deep dives". There will be 400 people seated together in one room (in groups of 10) for two days. Each day will be split into three panels; Executive Panel, Thought Leader Panel & Practitioner Panel. Each panel will have three, 20 minute, "art of the possible", case studies, a short speaker Q/A followed by 45 minutes of facilitated hands-on engagement. We've designed the conference so participants spend 50% of their time networking and learning from each other through these hands-on, "deep dive" sessions.

  Why business agility

Traditional models of management and corporate governance are failing to keep up with the needs of the modern economy. Change, both technological and cultural, is occurring at faster rates than ever before. In this climate, modern enterprises will live or die on their ability to adapt. As a result, companies are turning to agile for ideas to innovate, reduce the cost of business and remain relevant in a changing market.

This is where business agility comes in. Business agility embraces change; changing how you think, changing how you work and changing the way you interact. The ability to change is important whether you are a software developer or a CEO.
