The “NoW OS” (operating system)
Companies, teams and individuals must learn to deliver innovative products and services at speeds never seen before.
Being innovative however, must not come at the expense of your important daily tasks, and your organization’s scorecard outcomes (revenues, profit, NPS, community impact, employee experience etc.). Balancing all the possible work people work on, while remaining necessarily nimble, has become more and more complex as our world moves at its rapid pace.
In this 2-day bootcamp, we’ll guide you through the history of Agile and the terms and acronyms you should be familiar with before taking a highly interactive journey on how to utilize the principles of Agile in non-tech environments. You’ll leave with a framework that will enable: cross-functional teamwork; transparency in team objectives; on-going progress; constant improvement; continuous feedback; and of course, a mindset of innovation and agility.
We call this framework the, “NoW-OS” (operating system) and it takes the best of OKRs, Scrum, Lean, Radical Candor, Design-Sprints and Deep Work. If you are looking for the modern way to run your business, look no further than the “NoW-OS”!
