Powered by agile42 and Cognitive Edge, the ORGANIC agility Conference will be taking place in Vancouver on May 6th. This will be the very first conference featuring a keynote on ORGANIC agility®, which is an evolutionary approach to creating organizational resilience - the capability to innovate and quickly adapt to changing market conditions.

Why attend the ORGANIC agility conference?

Following the keynote on ORGANIC agility, the conference will be divided into two tracks that you can choose from - allowing you to experience the ORGANIC agility approach through real case studies and hands-on activities.

Track #1: Leadership Agility

This track is a great opportunity for attendees who want to learn directly from other organizations who have gone beyond the usual agile transformation experience by applying agility to their organization as a whole and are seeing rapid impact from shorter cycle times to successful product launches.
  • Get insights on how your company can become more resilient and adaptive to markets that are changing at an exponential rate
  • Learn about the Cynefin Framework and how to use it to help in decision making
  • Exchange knowledge with peers and speakers from HSBC, Best Buy Canada, Resort Municipality of Whistler and others

Track #2: Team Coaching Workshop

This full-day workshop is more applicable to attendees who are looking for techniques and approaches to improve team performance. Attendees will
  • Learn how to structure their coaching effort and measure the impact
  • Walk away with practices they can apply immediately on their team
  • Exchange knowledge with peers, speakers and agile42 coaches on-hand

What is ORGANIC agility?

In a nutshell, ORGANIC agility consists of three pillars.

1) Capability-based leadership model

The new ORGANIC leadership model supports leadership growth as a capability, rather than only seeing it as a personal development initiative for leaders based on role. This is an important distinction - growing the capability of leadership throughout an organization requires building it into the organizational structure and culture. To grow leadership capabilities, we need to start building the ability, in ourselves and others. This will allow us to see the connections between what we do and the effect it has on our organizational culture, our environment and us as a leader. >> Rethink leadership: Learn more

2) Organizational scaffolding through five principles

ORGANIC agility is centered around five key principles that act as scaffolding for organizations as they evolve into being more adaptable and resilient. These principles act as a reminder or guardrails to ensure that as an organization grows and evolves it continues on the correct path until a point where they are ingrained into the organizational culture and no longer need to be explicitly called upon. Organizational agility is not a destination but a journey of continuous improvement. As long as an organization can be kept to these five guiding principles, it can continue to evolve and grow in a positive direction.

3) Tools supporting ORGANIC agility

There are key tools developed to support ORGANIC agility that include the Organizational Scan™ (OrgScan) and the Agile Strategy Map™. The OrgScan was developed in partnership with Cognitive Edge that utilizes their patented SenseMaker® technology and allows businesses to get a thorough and unbiased view into their organizational culture through self-documentation and analysis of decision making. Complementary to the OrgScan, the Agile Strategy Map helps you take the principles of ORGANIC agility and apply them in practice. It is both a true map and a living, responsive tool that lets you share your strategy with your entire organization and seamlessly connect planning with execution.
