Multidimensional Collaboration and Multiple Waves of Agility

Three Waves of Agile - From SolutionsIQ


Charlie Rudd, CEO of SolutionsIQ, a Conteneo customer and partner, just published The Third Wave of Agile, a very insightful post that compactly describes how Agile has progressed from single teams, to multiple teams (Agile at Scale), to the entire enterprise (Business Agility). As a leader in the Agile movement since 2003, I find myself agreeing with his insights. More importantly, I also believe that his graph on industry maturity applies to the changes a single organization realizes as they pursue business agility: they start with teams, move to scale and then focus on the enterprise.

The Collaborationist is In. 5-Cent Advice.

Posted by Luke Hohmann on Aug 20, 2015 6:50:46 PM

It's safe to say that there isn't much I haven't seen in the conference/tradeshow world, having worked for more than a decade on all sides of industry, from show management to vendor to exhibitor. From speaker recruitment to booth design, I thought I'd seen and done it all. That is, until August 3, when I found myself and our VP of Business Development Laura Richardson at the Gaylord Convention Center at National Harbor, Maryland, building a booth for the Every Voice Engaged Foundation from PVC pipe, a couple hundred yards of brown butcher paper and tempura paint.
