BEING NIMBLE – IGNITING THE ADAPTABLE ORGANIZATION

WORKSHOP: dive into the the IIBA Global Research for Business Leadership “BEING NIMBLE” to learn how business analysis can make organizations nimble.

About this workshop

Something must be wrong! Lots of organizations have invested in Agile frameworks, training, and practices (sprints, scrums, retros!) and are still unable to deliver the speed and flexibility they desire. When they talk about Agile they usually struggle to differentiate DOING agile (by using methods and frameworks) from BEING agile (acting according to the agile mindset and achieving measurable results).

To avoid this ambiguity we prefer to use the term “NIMBLE”.

Nimble was defined by IIBA in a Global Research for Business Leadership as “the scalable capability for organizations to sense and respond to change”.

This study presents that the key to being nimble is not specific methods or frameworks, but the organization’s business analysis capability. Yes, you can play a key role in your organization’s nimbleness.

This tutorial was presented at the BBC 2024 (Building Business Capability Conference) by Fabrício Laguna and Filip Hendrickx and ended with a fun and engaging BA roller coaster.
