2019 Webinars

Designing flexibility and speed into your operating model; You don’t have to be Agile to be agile.

Agile approach is not the only way to design flexibility and speed into your operating model, particularly given the challenges and pitfalls associated with trying to implement Agile. Agile started as a way of working in the software development industry based on rapid development cycles, its good enough, and fix it in the next cycle mentality.

Now Agile is the newest buzz word, end-all, be-all management solutions. Agile zealots profess an all-in approach to it. We have seen this 10’s of times before… recall the onset of Quality in the 80’s, or maybe the mystery of finding the “core competence” of a business in the 90’s, or perhaps Lean in the 2000’s… Agile was never intended to be the basis of an entire operating model. But like the management interventions of Quality, Six-Sigma, and Lean, embedding agile into the work environment requires pragmatic systemic changes as it has significant impacts on management roles, power and decision making, governance and entire structures.

Putting agile into traditional waterfall work environments is a collision waiting to happen fraught with challenges, risks, and trade-offs. And, the motivation to work in an agile environment is compounded by the fact that the younger workforce is enamored with it because it brings less bureaucracy, greater empowerment and focuses on getting things done – all honorable reasons. But there is more than one “road to Rome” as the saying goes – or, you can design flexibility and speed into your operating model without being Agile.

DATE & TIME: Thursday, 30th April at 10 am PST and PHX time/6pm UK time/7pm CET/10pm Dubai time/5am Melbourne time

DURATION: 75 minutes

The Road to Sustainable Modernization Runs Through Collaborative Redesign: How One Business Modernized its Operating Model and Improved Performance Overcoming a Cluster of Internal/External Challenges


Most businesses today must respond to pressures brought about by new ways of working, data and digital transformation, growth, changing customer expectations, regulatory demands and evolving delivery channels.  For the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), these pressures and more such as access, admissions, changing law education programs compounded by running an outdated operating model, created road blocks to performance.

For former Law School Dean and LSAC CEO, Kellye Testy, modernizing its operating model quickly while genuinely engaging its staff from the start was a fundamental requirement. Leveraging ON THE MARK’S collaborative approach engaging key stakeholders, customers, its board and the entire employee population, the redesign took less than one year to complete.

CEO Kellye Testy, and Mark LaScola, Managing Principal of ON THE MARK, will take you through an interactive journey of LSAC’s operating model modernization, its challenges, wisdoms and impacts on the LSAC and the broader law education ecosystem.
