MECHANICS OF ADAPTING: VIRTUAL WORK, HEALTH AND SAFETY


Tuesday, June 16 at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM GMT+1

 

Description:

After the overview of the 6 dimensions from Steve Denning’s “Why Only The Agile Will Survive”, our following webcast will describe the “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 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.

In this webcast “Mechanics of Adapting: virtual work, health and safety”, our panel includes:

  • Michael Clarkin (Moderator) – Chief Marketing Director Scaled Agile
  • Ahmed Sidky – Head of Business Agility at Riot Games, President of ICAgile
  • Christopher Hymes – CISO and Head of Enterprise IT at Riot Games
  • Bret Borota – VP of Product Management at Cerner
  • Jason Ortmeier – VP of Talent Development at Mortenson
