Modern business environment is pushing organizations towards increased agility to strengthen their ability to embrace competitive complexity. This is why Agile transformation has become a hot topic in organizations and consulting. Unfortunately, however, many of these so-called Agile transformations end up in a confusion and diminished flexibility. Even though the root causes for this are manifold, they however, arise especially when hierarchical organizations are faced with complexity. Typical symptoms include increased lead-time, reduced ability to solve complex tasks, and failed projects. The lecture will illustrate these dynamics through two recent project cases from the European banking industry. The lecture shows how to approach the most complex tasks to prevent complex transformational projects and programmes from failing.
