Entrepreneurs and Intrapreneurs

Why Invest in Business Agility?

Over the past few years, we have seen an enormous amount of change and disruption.

After years of uncertainty following Brexit, a global pandemic has devastated businesses and shattered a wide variety of traditional markets in its wake.

The US Army refer to this as VUCA:

  • Volatility
  • Uncertainty
  • Complexity
  • Ambiguity

If your business follows a traditional waterfall-style style of project management and product development, the past 5 years will have been an emotional rollercoaster set to the soundtrack of ‘boulevard of broken dreams’.

By contrast, VUCA is the territory in which Business Agility thrives.

 

"An online Entrepreneurship Academy that enables you to cultivate high-performing, Agile organisations and departments that unleash people’s creativity and passion." - John McFadyen

The Agile Entrepreneurs Academy is aimed at Entrepreneurs and Intrapreneurs that want to adopt a more adaptive and responsive style of product/service development that enables them to rapidly create and iterate through small, collaborative, and creative teams.

Many entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs lack a high-performance coach and mentor that can help them find compelling solutions in the crucible of creative challenges and high-octane disruption.

The Agile Entrepreneurship Academy is an online Academy that works in small cohorts of 10 to 12 individuals and provides coaching and mentoring that helps you unlock compelling and divergent solutions to the creative challenges presented to you.

The group dynamic is just as important as the personalised coaching and mentorship. You will be connected to individuals who are as dynamic, driven and creative as you are within a coaching and mentorship relationship that is designed to bring the absolute best out of you.

The personalised, engaging and interactive sessions are designed to challenge your thinking, to help you grow into solutions and craft compelling products and services through a framework of tried and tested tools.

Tools that have been critical to our coaches and mentors through some of the UK and Europe’s largest and most challenging Business Agility transformations. Tools that will be shared with you to help you build a culture and mindset that embraces Business Agility as a framework for innovation
