Next Event

Tues 13th Feb: Andrew Meyer and Gary Green - Attempting to Create a Dynamic, lean and Innovative Organisation plus Billy Meredith from Provident

The software industry has transformed it's self over the past two decades by finding new ways to work that properly recognised the unpredictable, problem solving nature of much of it's work and at the same time reduce risk and significantly increased the rate of value production. The mantra has been to question the cost of every activity in light of the risks it mitigates or the value it realises. This has led to much innovation within the typical product development pipeline and many smaller businesses have capitalised on this as a significant commercial advantage.
Achieving these changes within a small team can transform performance with little disruption however as the size of an organisation increases so does the resistance to change. There are a lot of hearts and minds to realign, right from the coal face to senior leadership teams and resistance normally exists in one form or another at every level. For any large organisation to truly transform it's self and realise the commercial benefits is a long slow process requiring a lot of leadership and good dose of personal risk taking. This month we're going to hear a couple of experience reports that are definitely worth listening too.
