Since Agile events was established, the ways in which firms have adopted and utilised agile concepts have multiplied and shifted from the edges to the very centre of professional firm strategy and operations.

Agile resourcing

With some of the largest professional firms committing themselves to having a much higher percentage of their people on variable terms, while alternative service providers are offering clients a range of flexible resourcing options, resourcing times are changing fast.

Agile workspaces

As the efficient, green and open ‘activity based working’ environment shifts from cutting edge to industry standard, where next for professional offices?

Agile thinking

Well-established IT concepts of agile development, sprints and iteration are moving into the professional service mainstream, with design thinking, lean and agile project management changing the way professionals develop and deliver their services.

Agile tech

Cloud, SaaS and low-code technologies dominate and a rapidly rising percentage of applications are being purchased, managed and consumed outside of the IT function.

Agile information & document management

Firms are taking bolder steps and making bigger investments in the comprehensive digitisation of their client services, back and middle offices.

Agile business models

Once-concrete sector boundaries and traditional partnership models are being replaced by new funding, corporate entity, joint-venture, incubator and collaborative alternatives.

Agile organisation

Hierarchical, performance review-based models are transforming towards empowered, autonomous, continuous, collaborative systems, increasingly reflecting the expectations and preferences of millenials and Gen Z-ers.

Agile learning

Modern ways of working and living demand new ways of developing knowledge and skills in a faster, more collaborative and iterative way.
