2020 has been a year marked by uncertainty. After spending weeks in quarantine due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are re-entering a world marked by dramatic change. The pandemic has highlighted long-standing issues within our societies, healthcare systems, economies, and more. If thinking of the future sends your mind reeling, you aren't alone.
You are not alone. That's a powerful sentence, isn't it? We founded the Business Agility Institute with a mission to empower people within organizations towards resilience and growth as the world continues to become more and more complex. Our goal is to walk alongside you and your organization--even as the future is murky--to move past the status quo into greater innovation. To us, "you are not alone" isn't just an idea--it drives everything we do.
That's why we're hosting our first-ever virtual learning summit this June, called "Emerging from Crisis." We know this is an unprecedented and disorienting time for many people within organizations around the world. So, we've invited leaders to join us from varied backgrounds and business sectors who have walked through crises and come out the other side with hard-won lessons to share. They'll be telling their stories through 20-minute talks spread out over three days. At the end of each day, we're partnering with world-class facilitators to create virtual space for dialogue around unpacking what we've heard, discussing what will work for us, and how we can implement meaningful change in our organizations.
To be clear, we're not here to give you "Five Steps to Survival" or tips to manage a remote team. We’re aiming higher. We want to learn what we need to do today in order to thrive tomorrow. We’re calling it Emerging from Crisis, and you're invited.
