Business leaders realize that the pace of competition has increased, and scale and cost advantages can be overcome by fast, ferocious startups with speed and agility. To keep pace with this changing environment, leaders aspire to create nimble, flexible enterprises. Yet many recognize that their day-to-day reality is silos, sluggish processes, and stalled innovation.

Agile has the power to change this dynamic—but needs to go beyond an assortment of agile teams. To become a truly agile enterprise, the C-suite must become agile and the company’s executive team must embrace agile principles.

On July 20, 2020, in a live, interactive HBR webinar, Bain & Company’s Darrell Rigby will share insights from his May/June HBR cover article, “The Agile C-Suite.” Rigby will discuss how truly agile leaders strike the right balance between standardizing operations and pursuing innovation. Rigby will present:

  • How agile really works across an organization.
  • How agile can enable vigorous innovation without sacrificing the efficiency and reliability essential to traditional operations.
  • How to implement and scale agile to reap its full benefits—and what not to do. 

If you know your organization needs to become more agile in order to thrive in this fast-changing landscape but aren’t sure how to get started—join Darrell Rigby and HBR on July 20, 2020.
