Constant fast change has become a reality of our time. Agile has become a popular leadership philosophy and a project management methodology for addressing this reality. While the theory is simple, it’s much more challenging to become Agile in practice.

-Apply Agile principles and philosophy within your team and organization
-Develop change resilience at a personal, team, and organization level
