THE AGILE LEADER 2nd EDITION.

How to create an agile business in the digital age

The newly revised edition of The Agile Leader will teach you how you can not only survive in the context of digital transformation, but also thrive and grow, by adopting a powerful agile leadership model.

Cirrus CEO Dr Simon Hayward lays out clearly in eight steps how agile leaders empower their team to make decision quickly, evaluate correctly where the biggest opportunities are and mould their strategies around market dynamics.

If there’s one leadership skill that successful businesses have in spades, it’s the ability to enable teams to adapt and grow within complex eco-systems of clients, partners and suppliers. By focusing on teamwork and collaboration, as well as promoting shared decision making and ruthless prioritising, leaders can transform the way they work and how their teams function.

Simon Hayward is an agile leadership expert and in this new edition he distills years of leadership and agile research into an actionable eight step plan brought to life with examples of agile digital businesses.

Learn how to become agile and make digital transformation and delivery part of your business as usual.
