How LV= learnt to love Agile

Richard Warner is the COO of LV=. On March 11th, he will freely share his company’s remarkable Agile journey with ten senior executives at a private Breakfast Briefing. We would like you to join us at this select table… 

Richard’s journey began with a bombshell. In his 2014 Budget, the Chancellor of The Exchequer suddenly announced that people would be free to withdraw their entire pension savings. 

Dubbed the ‘Lamborghini Budget’, the news shocked and rocked the pensions industry. Many feared that millions of pension payments could be compromised by a sudden withdrawal of funds. In one devastating stroke, a new pensions landscape had been created and it forced Richard down a radical path of Agile change…

“Agile is more than mere technology – it’s a total business mindset” 

Richard will describe his first foray into the Agile world and his subsequent experiences. He will then openly explain why…

  • Agile is not just for IT; it’s a business-wide mindset. “There has to be a total enterprise commitment to finding new efficiencies; this is not a niche technology play”.
  • Senior teams must understand and champion this mindset. “Agile has a steep learning- curve that challenges established processes and personal comfort zones. You have to help people to speak the same language and to share the same expectations”.
  • Blockers need to be challenged. Learn how to win the respect of risk-averse governance and compliance gatekeepers.
  • Reporting lines cannot be allowed to limit team dynamics. “It’s not about who you work for – it’s all about the work you deliver”.
  • Agile and Waterfall methodologies are NOT mutually exclusive. Discover the many agile ways to use Waterfall processes in a productive partnership.

If business agility is your passion or professional concern, this will be a unique experience sharing event. Places at our Breakfast Briefing table are free but strictly limited to just ten senior executives. With such a fascinating guest speaker and such a remarkable culture-changing journey to share, we are certain to be over-subscribed. Please register now.
