Event Details

Welcome to our December Meetup!

Watch this 15 minute video before the event: https://www.biointeractive.org/classroom-resources/origin-species-beak-finch The Origin of Species: The Beak of the Finch; This film explores four decades of research on the evolution of Galápagos finches, which has illuminated how species form and diversify.

Presentation details:
Charles Darwin introduced concepts such as natural selection, fit for purpose and evolution – which later become the expression “survival of the fittest.” Though these concepts are often misunderstood or misrepresented, it seems to me that there are parallels when comparing how nature adapts to changing environments and how Agile coaching teams adapt over time to changing ecosystems and needs.

Join us to see how one company iterated on their coaching model and approaches to become more effective and relevant to the business side of Agility. See how three different ecosystems played into how our focus and approach evolved to fit prevailing context (era) at that period (goals, pros/cons of each.)

Key Takeaway: The approach to successful Agile coaching will evolve over time – be adaptive!
