Quarterly Masterclass - Achieving strategic agility in the short-term and long-term: A case method workshop

We are excited to have the Agile Research Network (ARN) join us for this workshop. The focus of this workshop is on exploring a real-life case study and engaging collaboratively within two breakout groups to solve an agility challenge.

The workshop will be facilitated and guided by the principles of the case method pioneered at the Harvard Business School.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Enhance your problem-solving skills 
  • Thought-provoking discussion with peers
  • Gain insights into a real-life scenario

Overall, this workshop promises to be a valuable learning experience for participants looking to enhance their problem-solving and collaboration skills.

Please note: This event will not be recorded and will be run in accordance with the Chatham House Rule 


In Partnership and collaboration with the Agile Research Network

Masterclasses are 2-hour workshops, designed for Professional Level members to hear from experts in business agility, share their own experiences and network in breakout groups. We source experts to discuss topics that Professional Level members are interested in, so please email [email protected] if you’d like to make a request. We also choose speakers based on our Competency Framework, to provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) that helps you take your practice to the next level. 

Learning objectives 

Masterclasses are designed to provide CPD that you can apply to your practice. Instead of passive learning, attendees are encouraged to get involved with discussion, share ideas and collect suggestions on handling the challenges of agile practices. Small breakout groups provide a space to problem-solve issues less publicly, with a group of people who understand agility.
