Thought Leaders 2019

Agile organisations for real
– fit for humans, fit for the future

Get in touch

At Thought Leaders 2019, Eric Ries led us in a live exploration of the mindsets that need changing and the actions that need taking in order to create agile organisations for real.

The international best-selling author and leader of the global Lean Startup movement also challenged our reservations about organisational agility head-on, provoking us towards breaking new ground.
