Organisations are starting to wake up to the possibilities of being agile in non-product areas of the business. How can you - as an agile practitioner with skills, scars and experience - help them to understand what it means to 'become agile'? Where are the pain points that make the difference between success and failure? What are the new challenges likely to emerge in creating an agile organisation?
During the session, we will explore the following questions:
Cerys Hearsey, Managing Director, Postshift Consulting. Cerys is Postshift's lead consultant on technology-enabled organisation design. She currently teaches executives and change agents at large enterprises on the methods of enabling agile, distributed change.
In her 15 years working with enterprise clients, Cerys has supported organisations through the strategy, selection, implementation and embedding of social platforms, including IBM Connections, Jive, Yammer, SharePoint and Confluence. She has enabled organisations to grow mature social business platforms using adoption tactics and organisational health measure frameworks.
Before joining Postshift, Cerys was an independent consultant for 10 years, implementing knowledge and information systems. Cerys is happiest at work when armed with sticky notes and a kanban board. Outside of work, she enjoys diving in murky waters of the UK, searching for archaeological finds from an abundance of wrecks.
