“Conscious Agility Applied” will be the topic of a full-day workshop at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee’s Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business on Friday, October 25.  The event, sponsored by the Center for Technology Innovation, takes place from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., in Lubar Hall N146, located at 3202 North Maryland Avenue in Milwaukee.

For decades, a myriad of organizational improvement, product and software development movements, methodologies, and techniques have offered limiting views of many problems confronted by business and technology professionals. The diversity of approaches has resulted in creating division between business and technology disciplines as well as intra-technology (requirements, development, testing, etc.) and intra-business (strategy, marketing/sales, product and project management, governance, etc.) disciplines.

While many such movements strictly adopt a single perspective–some focus on “softer” aspects (culture, leadership, etc.), while others focus on “harder” aspects (mechanics) of human dynamics–there is no approach that remains agnostic and embraces an all-inclusive viewpoint, integrating all perspectives while keeping the “human element” paramount.

While accomplishing just this, Conscious Agility helps people achieve a higher sense of awareness of their business and technology disciplines so that individuals, teams, and organizations can work with and even benefit from uncertainty in their environment.

The workshop will be led by Mark Ferraro and Brad Barton, co-creators of Conscious Agility.  Both have had decades of experience helping individuals, teams, and organizations learn effective and proven practices such as Lean and Agile.

The cost for the workshop is $145.  For a printable brochure and to register online, visit http://www.cti.sba.uwm.edu, or for additional information, call the UWM Lubar School of Business at 414-229-3992.
