More people are becoming entrepreneurs. The cost (and risk) of creating a tech company has dropped due to cheap computing power and increasingly with innovations such as 3D printing. The number of start-ups being created is doubling every year. Anyone visiting Lisbon, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Stockholm, or Istanbul will be unable to avoid the buzz of entrepreneurial activity. A new generation of risk-takers is busy creating the value of tomorrow. Many will fail. Some will try again. More and more will succeed. From the three Laws of Agile to foster Enterprise Agility to Personal Agility, focusing on what matters will prevail in a digital world. If failure breeds success, then the future is bright.
This session is relevant for all the attendees including who are new to the field.
