Posted by Stephen Parry on Apr 26, 2019 3:36:10 PM

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.

The Future is Always Coming: Adaptability is Key to Keeping Up with Technology

Posted by Stephen Parry on Apr 18, 2019 3:42:43 PM

When I was writing this blog, one of my favourite songs from the 90s, and even still, came up on my playlist – The Future of the Future by Deep Dish, featuring Everything but the Girl. I am not sure if the lyrics
