Description

Mike Russell, "Agile Transformation: Change with a Positive ROI"


Change with a positive ROI is NOT an oxymoron! Learn how an Agility transformation program can more than pay for itself.

Achieving business agility requires a fundamental shift for most companies. Yet most executives equate agility with isolated process change and not fundamental change. Therefore, companies try to achieve that shift with events like training, however events don’t work because events don’t create lasting change. Lasting change requires a program that provides knowledge AND application, feedback, and adjustment within multiple rhythms of reinforcement. Change is accelerated by connecting those rhythms of reinforcement with those outside the program.

A key hurdle to getting transformation going is funding. Funding for “training” is often viewed as low priority because training typically has no measurable return. Therefore, a key success factor to the implementation of agility transformation is showing a positive return on investment. This can be done, and change with a positive ROI is NOT an oxymoron.

This workshop provides the blueprint introduction for attendees to self-design and implement positive ROI programs within their companies, resulting in successful transformation.
