Creating An Agile Mindset and Innovation
September 16, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+5.5
Traditional approaches and processes for innovation and change management need to be questioned in this era of the pandemic. There is an urgent need to generate effective solutions rapidly and at lower costs. In other words, there is an urgent need for agility and for out of the box solutions to solve problems organizations are facing today. In this session we describe the agile mindset and contrast with the traditional mindset when it comes to solving a problem. You will see case scenarios of how an organization willing to embrace an agile mindset can deliver results in “half the time” and at “half the cost”.
