AGILE Dunedin is a one day event focused on building capability within the business sector for those exploring AGILE practice, and for those already utilising AGILE in their organisation.
Business Agility is about putting the customer at the centre of the organization’s focus, changing from measuring activities to outcomes and creating an ecosystem which unleashes the productivity and innovation already present in the people in the organisation.
Hear from four expert speakers from the AGILE Alliance NZ, and take part in the afternoon unconference, where discussions centre around topics as chosen by attendees.
Morning tea, lunch and post-event networking and drinks are included in the event fee.
Student discounts apply, details through the link.
