About the Presentation

Dr. David F. Rico will give a presentation on "Business Value of Agile Organizations: Strategies, Models, & Principles for Enterprise-Level Agility," which are emerging models for successfully managing 21st century human-capital, knowledge, and Internet technology-intensive global businesses. Dr. Rico will establish the context, provide a definition, and describe the value-system for lean and agile organizational strategies. He'll provide an overview and comparative analysis of major lean and agile frameworks, models, principles, and practices. He’ll then introduce a meta-model for achieving business-level agility based upon best-of-breed values, principles, and practices discussed herein. He'll also provide a brief survey of the costs, benefits, and performance results achieved by lean and agile organizations. Finally, he'll close with a summary of tips, tricks, technique, and common pitfalls of the lean and agile business paradigm. This briefing has been warmly received by multiple government agencies, businesses, and Fortune 500 firms throughout the U.S.
