Certain Uncertainty with Evan Leybourn – Dec 7, 2022

Join us for a meetup with Evan Leybourn for a launch of the new Domains of Business Agility.

Speaker: Evan Leybourn – https://www.linkedin.com/in/evanleybourn/?originalSubdomain=au

Where: Komerční banka, Náměstí Junkových 2772/1, Praha
Date: Dec 7, 2022, 4pm – 6:00pm
Registration: bit.ly/kb_certain_uncertainty

Topic:  Certain Uncertainty
No matter what the future brings.
These 6 words are the heart of business agility – but they are also an invitation. Does your organization have the freedom, flexibility, and resilience to achieve its purpose – no matter what the future brings?And to complicate matters; it is a continuum, where the question is not whether you have it, but rather how much you have and is it enough?

There aren’t many of them, but those organizations who can answer yes to these questions can instinctively seize emerging and unforeseen opportunities for their customers’ benefit. But copying their processes isn’t going to help you. There is no single framework, method, or system that can create business agility — and, by definition, because an organization is a complex adaptive system, there can never be one. In many cases, even different business units within the same organization need different approaches.

Yet, while no two organizations follow the same journey, common patterns of behavior emerge.

In this briefing, we will explore these patterns and introduce the latest version of the Domains of Business Agility. A cultural operating model for your organization consisting of 5 primary domains spanning 18 emergent business capabilities.

Agile Open Cafe – Jun 9 – Virtual

Next Agile Open cafe will be on Jun 9, 2020.

Topic: UX & Agile

The importance of great user experience in the consumer world is unquestionable. Now, thanks to consumerization, we can’t neglect it even in b2b. So UX is unavoidable 🙂  Jirka and Jakub will give you a short introduction into ROI of UX and into best practices of integration of UX into Agile.

Jirka and Jakub spent the last 4 years at GoodData Corporation. Jirka is currently a VP of Product Engineering and Jakub is a sr. director, responsible for UX and new product development. Before GoodData, they worked together for AVG Technologies and Sun Microsystems. They are both pioneers of UX in the Czech Republic, with over 15 years of experience in this field.
