Agility: An Outside-In Perspective

September 30, 2021

For many of us, 2020 and 2021 have highlighted why being agile is so important. The impact of a global pandemic on our work and lives made the reality of frequent change, uncertain outcomes, and unknown constraints evident every day. Agility and Scrum evolved out of the need to deliver value in the face of uncertainty and complexity. But what does agility really mean to an organization, a team, or an individual?

In this talk, Dave West, CEO of Scrum.org discusses the reality of agility and how it is the tip of a fundamentally different way of working required for the post-industrial age. He describes the elements of agility and how they weave together to provide the foundation for managing uncertainty, risk, and complexity.
