    How does an executive effectively sell the opportunity of agility internally?

    How does an executive effectively sell the opportunity of agility internally?

    Many organizations have become successful, over decades, by following tried and tested #management and #projectmanagement rules. Rules and regulations that are deeply embedded in the culture of the organization.

    As we encounter increasing degrees of complexity, the business case for #agile has been proven time and again, especially in the world of #productdevelopment and #agileleadership.

    So, how do you convince the board to run a trial? How do you persuade other senior executives and #leadership teams to explore the opportunity of #agile?

    About John Coleman

    John Coleman has deep experience and expertise working with executives, #leadership teams and product development teams to achieve increased #organizationalagility and create environments where creativity and collaboration produce high-performance teams.
