Business Agility - Aligning the Parts of the Organization


Companies often adopt an agile framework or train people on new methods in an attempt to deliver faster. With this pattern, delivery often slows down instead, much like diverging a 4 lane interstate traffic onto a single lane road. Oftentimes the faster delivery doesn’t align with the company’s purpose and vision.

The outcome is disengagement between the leadership and the management. One can not simply blame Agile for the misalignment, instead, the problem is a lack of systems thinking in the first place. This means applying solutions to a problem without considering the effect on the other part of the system. Authentic and sustainable business agility is achieved by thinking of the organization as a system and aligning its parts to move together, not in friction. Looking holistically, an organization is a combination of Leadership, Management, and Operations. This session is an approach to design an organization with its parts aligned and resonating together for a common purpose.

    About our Speaker:  

    Nash Tripathi

    Avinash Tripathi (Nash) is passionate about what he does and firmly believes, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go farther, go together.” Nash is a trainer by profession, a facilitator at heart and a coach by instinct. Nash has worked with several fortune 100 organizations to help them through the change curve and enhance their perspective on agility. He travels to consult, working with enterprise management groups, executive teams and individual project teams on large-scale agile transformations in addition to providing leadership coaching and other agile trainings. Avinash has trained and coached individuals at several organizations including FannieMae, Capital One and has mentored several enterprise management teams and individual project teams in these organizations on business efficiency, process improvements and organizational change. He is also a TBR Certified Trainer, featured on the website.

    With an extensive technical background and several industry certifications, he is on a journey to bridge the gap between traditional management strategies and the agile mindset while helping individuals and organizations experience the benefits of using Agile. He is in pursuit of creating a framework for Business Agility and refining the approach for faster delivery.

    As a lifelong learner, it gives him immense pleasure to share his experience with others and, at the same time, learn new perspectives through collaborative learning. He is a huge believer in “community before individual”. He believes that, “Nobody is perfect. In fact, perfection is the enemy of self-actualization. Perfection is a myth, improvement is real.”

    As someone smart once said, "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish."
