  3. 3. Gartner “Quite simply, waterfall methods, when used in the traditional, project-based manner, are inconsistent and risky. Since there are other choices available that have the potential to be more consistent and less risky, it's time to begin the transition to these methods.” The End of Waterfall as We Know It, 2012 “The breadth of penetration into our client base (of Agile) is fairly high, but the depth is fairly low. Upwards of 50% of Gartner’s client base is using Agile, but less than 10% of work being done is actually being done in an Agile way.” Matthew Hotle, vice president Gartner Research.

  6. 6. Theory X vs Theory Y Leadership Copyright Renee Troughton 2013 6 Employees enjoy their mental and physical work duties. They will learn to seek out and accept responsibility and to exercise self-control and self-direction in accomplishing objectives to which they are committed. Workers need to be closely supervised and comprehensive systems of controls developed. Employees will show little ambition without an enticing incentive program and will avoid responsibility whenever they can. Douglas McGregor, The Human Side of Enterprise, 1960 .
  7. 7. Servant Leadership Copyright Renee Troughton 2013 7 “The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions…The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature.” Robert Greenleaf, The Servant as Leader, 1970 .
