Presented by

About this talk

Are you frustrated with leadership wanting to delegate the Agile transformation and not getting involved? Come to this talk and learn about new ways to facilitate leadership engagement, not just buy-in. Learn how to form an Agile Leadership Scrum or Kanban team, where leadership will understand that they are responsible for the success or failure of the Agile transformation. As Edwards Deming once said, “It is not enough that top management commit themselves for life to quality and productivity. They must know what it is that they are committed to that is, what they must do. These obligations cannot be delegated.” Thus, leaders must understand what it is they must do and what they are committing to for an Agile transformation to be successful. There is something for every Agilist in this talk. Leaders will learn a new paradigm for Lean and Agile thinking and understand how they can actively lead an Agile transformation. Agile coaches will gain new tools and techniques for engaging leaders to build a significantly powerful guiding coalition for the transformation. Agile team members will learn how to leverage leadership support to quickly resolve impediments, as well as increase transparency, and coordination. Attendees will learn: - Creating leadership participation in a Scrum or Kanban team to lead the Agile transformation - Overcoming impediments to change management (e.g. leaders don't have time to participate) - How to coach leaders to think in terms of Lean and Agile leadership - Measuring Agile transformation success at the leadership level and understanding the return on investment - Sustaining the change culture so leaders will continue to participate
