Post Meeting Notes - The Agile Dashboard

On 24th July CRF and PARC members gathered for The Agile Dashboard: Designing Agility Into Your Company. “If the keyword for the 20th century was ‘speed’, the keyword for the 21st century is ‘agility’.” So said Professor Joe Perfetti, our speaker for this session. That was before the coronavirus outbreak re-wrote the rules and re-ordered the business world. His statement is now more apposite than ever. Entire sectors have been devastated. Business leaders are now surveying the world after the lockdown with no idea of what business-as-usual will look like or even whether the very idea has now become outdated. Of one thing we can be sure, though, businesses will have to adapt and change fast.
