What Will We Be Covering At Agile Business Day 2018?

Posted by Stephen Parry on Aug 8, 2018 11:35:06 AM

The Chameleon Effect: Bold visions and harsh realities require new forms of Agility and Adaptability is the title of Stephen’s presentation at this year’s conference.

This requires structures, practices and people that can continually sense and respond to the most appropriate emerging customer needs before their competitors do.
