Purposeful Agility

Brisbane Chapter Event, 21 February 2017

This event provides insight into how Project Managers can support their organisations implement Agile delivery approaches alongside traditional methodologies.

Having purposeful agility can shape decisions and problem solving in organisations today and how awareness of this enables PMs to be effective in diverse environments.

Good leadership requires situational awareness and openness to change. These are also values of Agile. Based on David Snowden’s cynefin framework, awareness of dynamics and levels of complexities of a situation can allow us to be purposeful in our approach to decisions and problem solving. The concept of purposeful agility uses this framework to illustrate that there is not just one way to ‘do’ Agile. Agile, as a way of ‘being’ and continuous learning, has by nature, an inspect and adapt mentality. When the cynefin framework is considered in an agile delivery context, it’s a powerful tool to determine the type of delivery style suited to a situation.
