Description
  • Understand proven agile transformation leadership approaches
  • Secure ideas to address agile implementation challenges
  • Learn why agile transformations fail
  • Engage in shared learning and problem solving with other leaders
 
As businesses are confronted with delivering customer value more quickly at the right cost and quality, many are embracing agile and striving to transform their organizations to an agile culture. Moving to agile is not for the faint of heart. Leaders are confronted with many challenges in their agile transformation journey and like any organization wide change, it takes significant time and effort for agile to take hold and transform your software process.
 
This highly interactive and engaging workshop, designed for executives and organizational leaders, will help you tackle agile transformation challenges and teach what you need to know to successfully take agile to the next level in your organization. The workshop format is participant driven as the key agile leadership challenge topics to be discussed are solicited from participants. Learn how to apply critical agile values and principles along with experience-based best practices for implementation. Avoid the common mistakes of agile implementations and take home a leadership framework for success.
 
Key topics that are discussed during this workshop include:
  • The common challenges in agile transformations and why agile initiatives sometimes fail
  • Common misperceptions and myths about agile
  • The business benefits that agile can give an organization
  • What an overall agile transformation looks like and the typical hurdles you will have to overcome
  • Experience based guidance on how to tackle agile transformation challenges
 
Business and information technology (IT) executives and organizational leaders will leave this Agile Leaders Workshop with an understanding of the key agile transformation challenges and ideas on how to overcome them. Time is made available during the workshop for participants to interactively engage in identifying roadblocks to an agile culture and discover ideas to remove these obstacles.
 
Who Should Attend?
The audience often includes senior and mid-level management from both the business and IT organizations as well as corporate executives. In our experience, it is essential that senior executives participate in an Agile Leaders Workshop, as a transition to agile needs executive support and buy-in to be successful. The workshop gives management at all levels the necessary information to prepare for leading an agile transformation.
