How can a crisis ignite innovation?

Thrusting nations across the globe into danger and uncertainty, COVID-19 has been a true test of collective resilience. In response to the pandemic, world leaders have been forced to think quick and act fast. And society has had to follow suit.

As a result, the world has witnessed a widespread surge of new technologies and practices – the hallmark of agile nations.

In this Tech Talks event hosted by Mimi Kwa, Associate Professor Rashina Hoda will expand on her thought-provoking 2019 TEDx Talk on Agile Nations. With added commentary from topic experts Shane Hastie and Evan Leybourne, you’ll discover:

  • what an ‘agile nation’ is and its importance
  • how agility can drive innovations to solve national and global challenges, especially in a post-pandemic world
  • how agile methodologies and principles can be applied at a societal level
  • best practice examples from agile countries such as New Zealand.
