Celebrate The Agile Leader with The Agile Advantage conference
Dr Simon Hayward has become recognised as a global thought leader in agile leadership and become an honorary professor at Alliance Manchester Business School, and has built a network of fascinating people with expertise to share and stories to tell. As the second edition of The Agile Leader is published, we have gathered together a group of agility experts, academics and business leaders from around the world to share their insights into how agile leaders can build more agile organisations.
You can learn from this fascinating group of people at The Agile Advantage, a virtual conference happening this June. We look forward to sharing more details with you over the weeks ahead.
You can’t have an agile company without agile leadership. Most ‘traditional’ leaders, however, struggle to make the transition. It’s not that they lack the desire. Rather, agile practices upend so many of the hard-won instincts, honed by leaders, over years of experience. Simon’s book offers a well-researched, thoughtful guide, for those wanting to make the leap. Like any good leadership coach, he reminds us we must first look to ourselves, before asking others to follow.”Bill Winters, CEO, Standard Chartered Bank
