Want to deliver value and be meaningful? So does everybody. But how and where to begin?

Agility is no longer a buzzword. Reacting more quickly to volatile market conditions and customer or employee demands have become a necessity. Implementing agile models and methodologies is one thing, being truly agile from the heart of the organisation is another. Impossible? Definitely not. But how…?

In this book, fiction is intertwined with non-fiction, and will the elements of the People Journey Circle help you discover how and where to embark on your unique journey toward business agility in your organisation. These elements have been forged over years of intense experimenting, learning and improving during large and successful agile transformations. Together, they form a truly refreshing and unique approach where people are the heart of future organisations and agile networks.

The WHY, WHAT and HOW of creating business agility and sustainable growth, all combined into one book.
