A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers CEO survey emphasized that “during the past decade, we’ve seen economic volatility and disruption escalate to arguably unprecedented levels” and that “‘expect the unexpected’ has become the mantra”!
In a complex world where we can only “expect the unexpected,” tranquility is the root of fragility! Antifragility, coined by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder”, is fueling various technology and business movements, including DevOps, Continuous Delivery, and much more!
While Agility involves responding to change, Antifragility involves gaining from disorder; and while Agility emphasizes embracing change through inspecting and adapting, Antifragility emphasizes embracing chaos through adapting and evolving!
As a result of the proliferation of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, going beyond Agility is quintessential — individuals, teams & groups, and organizations & enterprises are embracing the quest for Antifragility to realize greater employee engagement and market innovation & disruption!
If you’ve embraced any degree of Agility, don’t miss this opportunity to go beyond Agility and explore Antifragility. We’ll introduce and demystify Antifragility, and explore how individuals, teams, and organizations can immediately put it into practice
