Presented by Ian Maple & Alan Eustace

At Workday, teams and leaders come to us all the time and ask us - ‘Can you please make my team agile?’ Our response is almost always some form of ‘We’d love to…but can you start by rephrasing that request without using the word agile?’

By asking this question, we can uncover what they really want. Once we understand their team’s goals and objectives, we can discuss how to implement specific agile, design, or innovation practices that deliver the outcomes they want.

The problem we face is that Agile covers a vast array of team and leader challenges, as well as potentially all areas of an enterprise. The Workday Agility program applies a structured evolutionary approach to ensure that we stay focused on delivering the results our internal customers want in a focused and data-informed way.

So come and join us to learn more about the Workday Agility approach in a fun, interactive session!
