    Leadership Agility in the New World of Work | Business Agility Series

    Nick Horney is an organizational psychologist and founder of Agility Consulting. He spent 23 years in Special Operations in the U.S. Navy, before building a career in the agile space. Horney joins us to discuss his ideas and experience in leadership agility and anticipating change, focusing on 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic. He uses the concepts of “After Action Agility” and the “Leadership Agility Profile 360 Assessment” to gauge how well organizations anticipate and respond to change.
    “The whole purpose of doing assessments is not just self-discovery: it’s what do you do with that? How do you convert that into your own individual development plan?”

    Your Big Agile Adoption Probably Isn’t a Transformation

    Your Big Agile Adoption Probably Isn’t a Transformation

    Michael Spayd is the co-founder of The Collective Edge, which seeks to “transform the transformers.” In this episode, Spayd shares some of his thinking behind his new book “Agile Transformation” and reminds us of the difference between organizational transformation and what he calls “a big adoption.” Leaders are key to the chances of success: “If you’re going to transform [your organization], you’re almost certainly the first problem,” because “organizations are designed to get the results that they get.”
    Oh, and we take a tangent to consider the connection between quantum physics, integral theory and meditation.

    The Six Disciplines of Agile Marketing | Business Agility Series

    The Six Disciplines of Agile Marketing | Business Agility Series

    Jim Ewel is one of the earliest advocates for Agile Marketing and is one of the authors of the Agile Marketing Manifesto. His new book “The Six Disciplines of Agile Marketing” provides a framework for applying Agile principles and practices to marketing.
    Ewel encourages marketers to initially shift their focus away from a process like Scrum or Kanban, and instead begin their Agile journey by developing alignment with the rest of the organization. He walks us through the other five steps and discusses the importance of metrics that matter.

    Practical Techniques for Change with Esther Derby

    Practical Techniques for Change with Esther Derby

    Esther Derby has four decades of experience with organizational change and she’s a well-known author and thought leader in the agile space. Derby chats with us about her latest book: “7 Rules for Positive, Productive Change: Micro Shifts, Macro Results” While you’ll hear her 7-step guide to problem solving, we particularly dig into her guidance on attending to networks. Accumulating network drama due to widespread layoffs and stress that are affecting our peers is making people less resilient and less supportive of each other. Derby shares her tips for allowing for unstructured conversations and maintenance of our connections in our virtual work environments of today. Accenture | SolutionsIQ’s Alalia Lundy hosts.
