Empowering people and delivering value faster to customers is what is expected from agile. Business agility enables companies to respond faster to rapidly changing markets and compete with market disruptors. Despite the increasing need for business agility to compete these days, companies have still not been able to accomplish this, and there is a growing list of reasons for agile failures.
Join your colleagues as John Orvos, a Sr. Agile Solutions Strategist, enlightens us on how to avoid the Four Failure Modes of agile.
•Company idealism vs. Customer Realism
•Agile Expert vs. Vision Re-engineer
•Sideline Cheering vs. Relevant Action
•Appeasement vs. Accountability
Please bring your real world questions!
The world is changing more rapidly than ever before and organizations of every size are struggling to remain relevant in the eyes of their customers. The simple fact that the average lifespan of a company has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century demonstrates that not all organizations are prepared for this new reality. It is only high-performing, adaptable and agile organizations that will leverage, lead and thrive in this ambiguous and unpredictable market. We call this business agility.
The problem with a statement like that is that there is no common definition of what business agility means. And that’s actually a good thing. In a dynamic and changing market trying to lock it down will defeat the very advantage it brings. Instead, I want you to start thinking of business agility as the common thread. An adaptable and sustainable narrative that binds & guides, rather than directs, us into the uncertain future.
This session will cover the state of business agility around the world. We’ll look at the Domains of Business Agility, interspersed with case studies from 4 multinational organizations in both the banking and utilities sector.
In this session you will learn:
• Domains of business agility
• How to work with Finance and HR to increase agility in your current organization
• How Business Agility is being adopted by organizations around the world
Projects deliver outputs, but businesses need outcomes. Today’s PMO must enable that transformation, embracing business agility concepts to deliver consistent achievement of business goals and to drive top down innovation into every area of project delivery. Join Mark Price Perry, the man who literally wrote the book on the Business Driven PMO, and CA’s own Jim Tisch as they discuss:
•How to transform outputs to outcomes consistently
•The importance of innovation focused strategy and the role of the PMO in making it happen
•The modern, business driven PMO as the cornerstone of strategy execution
If your PMO is still driving people, process and tools, or if it still focuses on a single department, it is significantly hurting your chances of success. Sign up now and learn how to change your future.

Business agility is an increasingly common theme discussed in organizations, but what is it? Research has shown that there are three laws or principles found across all agile organizations:
• The law of the customer: An obsession with delighting customers by continuously adding value for customers and users, as well as a recognition of the current need to generate instant, intimate, frictionless value at scale.
• The law of the small team: Big difficult problems need to be disaggregated into small batches and performed by small cross-functional autonomous teams, working iteratively in short cycles in a state of flow, with fast feedback from customers and end-users.
• The law of the network: A recognition that, to achieve full business agility, the whole organization needs to embrace the entrepreneurial mindset.
Pursuit of all three laws is key to sustaining business agility. Individually, none of the observed management practices are new. What is new and different is the way that the management goals, practices and values constitute a coherent and integrated approach to continuous innovation, fueled by a pervasive entrepreneurial mindset.

Business agility is a means for organizations to respond and adapt to the new pace of change. Achieving it means transforming your organization for speed and opportunity capture. It involves changing your mindset, how you make trade-off decisions, and how you deliver products and IT services.
Forrester has surveyed hundreds of companies about the success factors and dimensions of business agility. Through expert coaching and by transferring critical knowledge to company leaders, CA has helped hundreds of customers increase their agility organization-wide.

Why is there a such gap between what senior-level executives believe about business agility, and what their companies actually embrace? Join us for a webinar to find out why and learn how to help close the gap.
A recent CA-sponsored study on Business Agility throughout the Enterprise revealed that only 12 percent of organizations can claim their whole organization is on the path to business agility --- though more than two-thirds of survey participants agreed that agile organizations are better able to quickly respond to dynamic business conditions.
The survey also finds that improved Business Agility is expected to deliver:
•Better competitive advantage
•Higher customer satisfaction and retention
•Increased employee productivity and retention
•Faster time to act on new opportunities
Yet only 1 in 10 executives said they are leveraging the benefits of agile across their whole organization to achieve speed and responsiveness.
In this webinar, Doug Barth, founder of Gatepoint Research, will walk us through survey to share the following. Where has agility taken hold across organizations and what results can be expected? What departments are on the horizon to adopt agility and why? What are the biggest deterrents to adoption?
To help demystify some of the findings and provide guidance over potential hurdles on the path to business agility, he’ll be joined by Deema Dajani, a Senior Transformation Consultant from CA Technologies. Deema thrives on taking Fortune 500 companies through successful, large-scale agile transformations, and is on the business agility front lines every day working to close the gap.

Good security operations have never been more critical for a business than today. More and more businesses are suffering damaging breaches. Outdated or overly complex security measures are a barrier to productivity, and to adopting new technologies.
Plus, manual processes and a lack of visibility into unusual network behaviour by a user, machine or network device, can slow a security team down.
How can advancements in security technology help to connect, unite and enable better processes to help drive greater business agility?
In this webinar we will address:
• SIEM’s role in enabling fast detection and response to modern-day threats
• Implementing a security strategy that protects company assets and aligns to business objectives
• How having faster access to the right data at the right time, enables better decision making and increased productivity
• How to modernise your operations with real-time visibility and actionable intelligence
