Anthony Coppedge leads the vision, strategy, and execution for how business agility is infused in Global Digital Sales at IBM. Most of his focus is on strategy, iterative work prioritization, and coaching leaders, managers, and teams on delivering outcomes over outputs. He’s a pioneer in leading the transformative work of Agile Selling to create value for prospects and clients instead of traditional sales methods of extracting value from clients.
