Business Agility Conference with Evan Leybourn

Certain Uncertainty - The State of Business Agility

Exclusive: Attend Evan Leybourn’s first parisian talk on November 27th!

For the first time in France, Margo invites you to attend a talk from Evan Leybourn, founder of the Business Agility Institute. We propose you two formats of conference on the subject “Certain Uncertainty – The State of Business Agility” on November 27th, at 9am and at 12pm.

Online Registration Required – seats are limited

The world is changing more rapidly than ever before and organisations of all sizes are struggling to remain relevant to their customers. The simple fact that the average lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century demonstrates that organisations are not all prepared for this new reality. Only high-performing, adaptable and agile organisations will leverage, lead and thrive in this ambiguous and unpredictable market. It’s in this context that we can talk about Business Agility.

There is no common definition of what business agility means. And that’s actually a good thing. In a dynamic and changing market trying to lock it down will defeat the very advantage it brings. Instead, Evan Leybourn suggests to start thinking of business agility as the common thread. An adaptable and sustainable narrative that binds & guides, rather than directs, us into the uncertain future.

In this talk, Evan Leybourn will share the state of business agility around the world. We’ll look at the Domains of Business Agility, interspersed with findings from the recent Business Agility Report that studied 166 companies worldwide.

What is an agile company?

Agility has been the subject of numerous theories, publications and conferences for several years. The concept was historically created during a gathering of software development experts in 2001. They explain the ins and outs of what we know as « agile » through a founding document called the “agile manifesto“, which encompasses 4 values and 12 principles. At the time, it was mainly a solution proposed by developers to manufacture a software in the most efficient way while guaranteeing its adequacy with the needs of the customer. 17 years later, things have changed, and the agile manifesto provides only part of the answers to bring out a new product or service with what specialists call a good time-to-market and a good product market fit in the digital age.
