ABOUT THE EVENT

Originally created by software developers, agile methodology, which helps project teams achieve objectives through clear targets, sprints, and short time frames, is now being applied broadly throughout organizations. But wanting to be agile and achieving it are two very different things. In practice, organizations frequently struggle with rolling out organization-wide agile transformations.

On Monday, September 20, Babson College professor Rob Cross will lead a live HBR video webinar highlighting his research, which tracked how collaboration and decision making played out in the agile efforts of dozens of companies. He will discuss:

  • The unforeseen barriers that can undermine agile initiatives
  • Why traditional practices for framing, staffing, and executing agile projects can lead to staff burnout, the loss of key talent, and infighting among teams
  • Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) as a tool to help identify hidden stars in your company
  • How your company can adopt successful, proven approaches to agile projects

Today’s leaders must design agile systems to make the most of talent and outside teams, avoid overload and burnout, avert potential disruptions, and achieve objectives better and faster. Join Rob Cross and HBR on September 20 to learn how.
