To be a nimble, adaptable, and “agile” organization facing new challenges and complexities, traditionally accepted leadership practices from the past must be radically changed.
This will require more than just obtaining leadership “buy-in” to start using Agile practices. Leaders will need to evolve along with the people participating on the front lines of change. They will need to model the same value-based behavior and activities we will be asking of our Agile teams.
During this session, we will walk through the journey leaders take during an Agile transformation and also introduce an Agile Leadership Engagement Model. This model will provide a high-level view of possible behaviors, work products and relationships between senior leadership, mid-level leaders and your Agile teams.
What the model represents is a simplistic starting point. A starting point for you or your guiding change coalition to begin including your leadership team into the transformation journey and to start having the challenging conversations your organization has previously avoided.
