The global leader for creating 
AGILE organizations!




Nick Horney, PhD, Agility Consulting Principal


Dr. Horney will present a case study on November 18, with client Gary McKinney, at the Project Management Institute's Annual PMO Symposium in Miami Beach, FL.  The session will focus on the assessment and development of high potential talent at an oil & gas industry client to help accelerate the transformation to an agile organization.  During the past three years Valerus has embraced The AGILE Model an organizational development and talent management framework, to help define and drive transformation. Through the Accelerated Leadership Development Program, HR built agility into its talent management process.  The Valerus business results of 46% revenue growth, year over year, for the past three years, combined with a similar EBITDA growth over the past 3 years of 21%, lends credibility to the business impact of this strategic talent management initiative.

The Past & Future of Global Organizations

Whether or not your organization considers itself a "global" organization in the traditional sense of that word, the lessons and operating principles of global 

organizations apply universally.  The old adage of "think globally and act locally" continues to take on new meaning as all of our stakeholders reflect the global nature of our world today.  This global paradigm spans our supply chains, workforces, customers, consumers, investors and extended communities.  As we all strive to create more agile leaders and organizations, adopting the mental model mindset needed in the mainstay global organizations will benefit all organizations.
