Live Stream Recording “The Biggest Missed Opportunity: Focusing On Agile Things Instead Of Business Outcomes”

By: Agile Velocity | Oct 18, 2019 |  Agile Transformation,  Webinar

Did you know Amazon doesn’t even use standard Agile practices and vocabulary? Yet, they are arguably the most agile and successful organizations in the world. 

It’s not about doing Agile. It’s about gaining capabilities that drive results from Agile like happy customers, market responsiveness, engaged employees, etc. 

On November 7th, we hosted an event all about achieving these results from Agile. If you didn’t make the event, we recorded David’s talk so you wouldn’t miss a thing.

Key Takeaways:

– In a survey performed in David’s conference presentations on organizations’ current state of agility, over 50% reported that they were still improving their agility while 29% reported they still only had “Superficial Agility” in their organizations. Why does this happen? David explains. 

– There are 9 different Business Outcomes we’ve identified as important goals for a transformation: 

  1. Speed
  2. Predictability
  3. Market Responsiveness
  4. Customer Satisfaction
  5. Innovation
  6. Employee Engagement
  7. Quality 
  8. Productivity
  9. Continuous Improvement

– Once you determine what Business Outcomes your organization is after, then you can determine which Agile Outcomes and Practices you need to achieve those outcomes. For example, there are a total of 8 Agile Outcomes that go into improving an organization’s Speed, including the Ability to Focus and Decision Agility. 


We hope you found this live stream beneficial. If you have questions or if you’d like to learn more about how we successfully guide organizations as they work to become more agile through coaching, training, or a simple tune-up, you can reach out here.
