18th June to 10th of July, 2020

It's time to create The Days After!

The purpose of this RA Discovery Event is for all of us to rally together to envisage the future of organisations and leadership, together. Rather than find ways to avoid or deny turbulence and chaos, RA taps the energy in change and puts it to use in the required or necessary transformation. It is not agility for the sake of agility or being a slave to a particular guru, theory, model, cure for all. It is all of us using the time we have now to create the new future on the day after and beyond!

The online Journey begins with 2 days of Discovery, followed by 12 days of Exploration integrating the insights emerging from the community of participation, and finished with 3 days of Activation led by PMI’s Scott Ambler. The goal of the 3 panel discussions is to create a bridge, that moves the two weeks of sharing discoveries and explorations into real life activation.

The importance of Requisite Agility

Requisite Agility is:
Requisite: "Made necessary by particular circumstances"
Agility: “the ability to successfully adapt to, cope with, or leverage changing situations”

Requisite Agility enables individuals, teams and organisations to grow through turbulence and chaos, in today’s complex, uncertain, rapidly changing world.

Current multi-disciplinary organization theory takes a "many-hats" approach to views of org structure and operations making integration hard. RA takes a trans-disciplinary approach to reconciling frameworks and enabling the best discipline-specific constructs to interact and scaffold each other holistically into a new coherent whole. RA will always be at the beginning, always curious, always searching, learning, engaging, co-creating, evolving, because we fundamentally believe this is the way of nature and the way we should be.

The need for Discovery

This RA Discovery Event is a call to action to use the time we have now to be ready to create the new future on the day after and beyond!

The goal is to take the time we have now to design the way organizations and leadership will be renewed in this new decade we are in. Some of these changes will be changes that will emerge from this current global crisis, but it will also include changes that needed to take place in any case.

“Creativity comes from anguish
as the day comes from the dark night”

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Preparing for #TheDaysAfter will move our energy into a productive and positive space. And the best way to do this is together while we have the time.

Without the dark, we'd never see the stars

While it remains crucially important being busy with our new routines of social distancing, cleaning hands and sanitization, we also need a break from the continuous news-cycle of negativity, to avoid burnout.

#TheDayAfter is a positive discovery event. It has been designed to be high participation. It will allow you to channel fears, doubt, anxieties and boredom into a productive end.

We are going to get through to the other side of the curve. This RA Discovery Event moves us into the future. We will rally with each other to create hope, by being positive as we envisage and prepare for the new world, together.


Each presentation will conclude with a brief Q&A so people can raise questions. We will not be attempting to answer all questions for all participants at the session. This is why we are calling this a discovery session. This is because it is not about a bunch of expert spouting wisdom at the ignorant. The presenter is going to be offering invitations for new ways of thinking and working. We want to engage the participants (they are not an audience, they are participating in a change event) to think for themselves, what does RA mean and over the 3 weeks’ period that follow this event, we will continue the conversation through blogs, webinars and other online events.The first two parts of the New Realities Journey begin with Discovery Sessions, followed by Explorations. Following these events, there will be retrospectives held by the 12 Explorers and the RA Core Team, to pull together all that was learned through the RA New Realities Journey.
The final part of the program will be THE ACTIVATION of New Realities. This will move us from co-discovery and imagining the future to co-creating the future.
The Activation of the New Realities will consist of 3 sets of panel discussions.
The panels will be composed of four of the Explorers from the New Realities Journey.

All three panels will be hosted by Scott Ambler, Vice President – Chief Scientist of Disciplined Agile at Project Management Institute.


The focus is not going to be on consulting jargon, matrix diagrams or products to be sold. Instead, we will share Stories of rolling up our sleeves and envisaging a new future using plain, simple English.

Companies work hard to adapt to meet almost imperceptible fast-changing realities, but the chaos in the transformation can knock many back to BAU (business as usual), frustrating efforts. Getting past learned limitations and tapping into deep levels of human ingenuity makes navigating complexity much easier.

Here is how the RA Discovery Event will be different from typical, traditional conferences.

Exploring Realities

The Flow

The Discovery sessions each last 3.5 hours. Our speakers will present six 30-minute sessions. Each session will begin with a 10-15-minute invitation to new ways of thinking about leadership, in the form of a story. These segments will be prerecorded to free the session leader to facilitate the online conversation tracking questions and ideas raised by participants. For the remainder of the session participants will dig into the story and together develop intuition about the principles presented. This input will form the basis of the Exploration webinars making up the full long-form Journey.

The Explorations each last about 1 hour every weekday in a rhythmic meditative cadence. Speakers will follow the threads and energies of the participants in the forums and on the original Discovery calls.

The sessions will draw from multiple disciplines such as agile, scrum, lean, viable systems, complexity sciences, stratified systems, systems thinking, design thinking, chaos theory while challenging participants to transcend disciplines. One of the cornerstones of Requisite Agility is to apply agility based on what is required, not a predefined solution.
