16 / Developing Organizational Agility

Description

Imagine a world in which we drop the labels that segregate us as Lean. As Agile. As Waterfall. As Design Thinkers. Instead, imagine a world where we build the kinds of organizations and cultures that encourage and reward learning and customer centricity, that incentivize teams to deeply understand their customers, and that ensure that we’re always delivering value on their behalf. Let that sink in.

In this episode, hosts Sean and Joe chat with Jeff Gothelf – author, coach, consultant, and a featured keynote speaker at ITX’s 2nd annual ITXUX2019: Beyond the Pixels design conference. The world Jeff hopes for may not be the one he predicts will come to pass. But it is a world that allows us to freely pick and choose the components and methodologies that work best within our respective organization.
