Today we find ourselves in the midst of VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty Complexity and Ambiguity). The term that was originally coined to describe changing conditions on the battlefield is now widely used as the acronym for the reality of everyday work and life.
How do companies, established and start-ups, manage today’s ever changing and challenging environment?
In this introductory one hour workshop you will receive an overview of what an agile enterprise looks like across every function of a business.
Agile promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continuous improvement, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change.
Agile reduces complexity and improves efficiency.
How? By focusing on outputs, not inputs.
Traditionally we have a plan and we execute it to perfection but in a fast paced and increasingly uncertain business and technological landscape we no longer have this freedom.
Agile is about being responsive. Being agile is about measuring the right things and learning and adapting continuously.
This helps organisations and individuals get the most return on investment for their time - be it R&D, product development, marketing, sales, HR, support or operations, the agile methodology can be applied to make any function or role better - improving cost efficiencies and increasing revenues.
This workshop is developed for any organisation or individual who has an interest in Agile and understanding how aspects of it can be applied to all departments across their organization.
Steve Glaveski spent time working at both Macquarie Bank and Ernst & Young, where he consulted for numerous ASX50 and NASDAQ listed clients, before embarking upon his own entrepreneurial journey. He used lean startup principles to validate assumptions underlying his first startup, Hotdesk, which lead to a successful fundraising round, before growing the office sharing platform to almost 1,000 locations across AsiaPac.
He has since gone on to advise other early stage tech-startups and is a co-founder of Collective Campus, sighting an archaic mentality of "the way things have always been done around here" as a key motivator for wanting to get into the space. Steve is also a regular innovation blogger, having written for Venture Beat, Startup Daily and Shareable in addition to independent publishing on LinkedIn.
When not immersing himself in all things business and innovation, Steve can be found hitting weights in the gym, cycling down Beach Road, catching a live band on AC/DC Lane or enjoying some smashed avocado on toast at one of Melbourne's many famous inner city cafes.
