Being an agile change agent

1,277

Published on

Being successful with agile requires tackling three parts: the process itself, building strong teams, and using better technical practices. Yet, most organisations focus a lot on the process and ignore teams and technical practices.

This leads to 1/3 agile. There are a number of reasons why the other two-thirds are difficult -- cultural challenges, and inability to drive change.

The presentation looks are three vital skills that agile scrummasters / coaches should focus on, which are they often ignore: leadership, relationship building and influencing.
