We hope you're enjoying the summer holidays, whether in the scorching heat or in the downpours or something in between. Our July news is a recap of what we've been up to. It includes information about our new CAFÉ Change Planner Workshop; top posts for the month, including our blogs and other interesting articles; a new section called Stephen Parry speaks about ... ; and upcoming events. As always, if you'd like to have an informal chat about your business needs or about Business Adaptability or Agility in general, please get in touch.
The CAFÉ Change Planner Workshop is a one-day introductory session for 5-10 people, is aimed at C-Suite, middle managers, and change leaders and is a great starting point for your journey to Adaptability and Agility.

It offers some practical ways to understand your current organisation’s “change” personality and examines new forms and methods of change that are crucial for Business Adaptability and Agility.

If you laid all the concrete-reinforcing steel bars used in the construction of the Burj Khalifa end-to-end, they would stretch from Rome to Los Angeles. The world's tallest building and pride of Dubai is a spectacular architectural feat, comprising 160 stories of retail stores, hotels and private residences rising half a mile into the sky. It has more floors than any other building; the longest travelling elevator; the highest outdoor observation deck and is the tallest, freestanding structure in the world.
We are delighted to announce that our CEO Stephen Parry has been appointed as a judge for the CXA’19 - the UK Customer Experience Awards.

The Agile Prague Conference, the 16th and 17th of September, will feature over 30 international speakers. The event fosters a collaborative environment between speakers and attendees and ultimately this
knowledge-sharing leads to a better understanding of agile and how to put it into practice. My keynote presentation is The Organisational Journey to Business Agility. I will be discussing how it is easy to point out that changing technologies, revised business models and increased competition demand an agile and adaptive response for businesses to survive. However, it is quite another thing to recognise what an agile and adaptive organisation looks like in reality.
