Ever wish you had an “Agile Sales” team, or an “Agile Marketing” team? Wish that non-software groups would use the same tried and true principles? Belinda Waldock talks about her new book, Being Agile in Business, and teaches us how we can use our Agile muscles on all areas of our business.
Hangout with Belinda and Marcus and explore how you can improve your business agility
Belinda Waldock is an Agile Business Coach, professionally qualified ILM Coach and Mentor in Business Management and a Computer Science graduate. Over the past 15 years Belinda has worked with small to medium sized businesses in the UK and over the past 5 years has specialised in Agile and Lean methods for business development and improvement. Belinda works with a broad range of high growth businesses from community social enterprises to specialist software providers to adopt agile practices as highly effective methods for managing projects, empowering teams and creating a positive culture of organisational agility.
Agile is a globally recognised methodology which has emerged from the vibrant tech sector and Belindas adaptation of the agile methodology enables all business professionals to take advantage of Agile to springboard their growth strategies and manage change.
Belinda is part of the organising committee for one of the World’s leading agile conferences, Agile on the Beach, held each September in Falmouth, Cornwall. Belinda has helped to develop and grow the conference over the past 4 years to be self-sustaining and is a regular speaker sharing her experiences of adopting and using agile beyond the software sector. She also manages Software Cornwall, a small high growth cluster network of software development companies and works as an independent Agile Business Coach.
Being Agile in Business is a result of Belinda’s work with businesses to adopt and use agile beyond its origins in Software development. She has worked with Breweries, Manufacturers, Toy Designers, Social Enterprises, Marketing Agencies, Geologists and many more to use agile to manage change and leverage their growth potential successfully. The book brings together the learning and approaches used into an easy to follow guide to developing an agile mindset and taking an agile approach.
