More and more housing organisations are moving to agile ways of working seeking to realise business benefits. In a world where work is changing, don’t get left behind.
“Agile is a way of working in which an organisation empowers its people to work where, when and how they choose – with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints – to optimise their performance and deliver 'best in class' value and customer service. It uses communications and information technology to enable people to work in ways which best suit their needs without the traditional limitations of where and when tasks must be performed.” The Agile Organisation, 2013
It’s not just housing where agile is becoming popular either; it’s also increasingly popular with a variety of organisations and for different work functions.
For some businesses, moving to agile can mean a review of their time served Flexible Working policies, but for others it means introducing agile principles and terminology into projects and for implementing new ideas.
But how simple is “agile” to implement in any of these disciplines? What are the challenges, pitfalls and solutions? What can we learn from experiences so far?
At this conference you’ll hear from experts thinkers and progressive practitioners from inside and out of the sector.
Wherever you and your organisation are at on your journey to agile, you’ll learn more about key principles and methodologies for getting better business results, supporting and managing a more agile workforce and you’ll pick up and takeaway some practical ideas and tips about how to embed agile into your workforce.
