After the overview of the 6 dimensions from Steve Denning’s “Why Only The Agile Will Survive”, this webcast describes the Mechanics Of Adapting, namely regarding virtual work, health, and safety. Firms that are well along in digitizing both internal workflows and external interactions like Riot Games are able to operate virtually by working from home and are exploring the pluses (less travel) and minuses (interruptions from other family members). Firms are also exploring innovative ways of doing Agile practices such as virtual standups, team planning, and retrospectives.
In the absence of treatment or vaccine or favorable mutation, the virus will pose continuing risks to human health and safety for years to come. Maintaining the primacy of delivering value to customers from safe workspaces must remain the overriding goal. Firms should enable people to safely leave their homes, resume some version of their former lives, and help restart the economy, all the while preserving privacy and civil liberties. Given the risk that public policies and practices will be less than ideal or reliable in many jurisdictions, firms will need to be ready where appropriate to make their own assessments of the risks and innovate rapidly to develop new solutions to specific health and safety challenges.
