  • Mind the Gap: Business Agility Recorded: Oct 26 2017 34 mins
    Doug Barth, Gatepoint Research and Deema Dajani, CA Technologies
    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
    •Reduced costs
    •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.

    While project management, and project portfolio management (PPM) software solutions, have come a long way in recent years there is still one aspect of projects that lags far behind – reporting.

    •Detailed trending and predictive analytics
