Value Glide 2021 (11/11/2021) – Adapting to Turbulent Times

Especially during the past couple of years, it has been made clear that companies need to adapt their way of working and especially their leadership in order to weather storms that occur during their projects and be successful after all.

But how can businesses adapt to these turbulent times? The Value Glide virtual conference on November 11th focuses on this question specifically - of course with a lot of expertise about SAFe® too.

But why do we need agile leadership? When using agile methods, it is possible that teams start to interact with each other in non-optimal ways - the more teams an organization has, the more complex the collaboration will be. Agile leaders can help with this exact challenge - with their help, teams can organize themselves in a way that benefits everyone. After all, the agile leader has to keep an overview and assist the teams by giving them a clear framework they can act within ,and create an infrastructure that enables everyone to develop themselves.

As this journey can be challenging for sure, it is a great opportunity to learn from an exceptional group of thought leaders how possible threats in a SAFe® implementation can be solved or even prevented. Seize the opportunity to exchange ideas and expand your network with change agents during this one-day interactive online conference.

See how different organizations manage to solve the challenges in fast-paced environments, which difficulties can occur within traditional management and how we can learn to think differently.
