Leading Business Agility

Is your organization is trying to be more agile? Maybe you’ve had some exciting success on small teams, and you’re trying to adopt agile more broadly. Or maybe you’ve done an “agile adoption” and you’re struggling to get the rest of the organization to get in sync.

And it’s tough, right?

Let’s start with a simple truth: transformation is hard. There’s no single method, no simple plan, no proven roadmap to transformation. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that there are time-honored tools and approaches that you can use to set and achieve your agile transformation goals. This workshop will teach them to you.


Barry O’Reilly, author of Lean Enterprise, along with Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden, authors of Lean UX and Sense & Respond, share strategies, tools, and tactics to transform your work, increase agility, and create the business outcomes that matter to your organization.

These workshops showcase the models, methods and tools that Barry, Jeff, and Josh use to help leaders increase the rate of innovation and responsiveness in their organizations, create more effective organizational capabilities, and achieve high performance at scale.

Want to learn from your peers? Our public workshops are attended by some of the smartest, most experienced transformation leaders around. Join them and learn collaboratively as we workshop real-life problems together. 

What They're Saying

The workshop helped me put past experiences in context and set me up to tackle future challenges. I especially liked that the frameworks, tools & advice are grounded in the business-world-reality and not a dreamy wonderland. I can highly recommend this workshop and (almost) guarantee that everyone will take something away from it!
