Leading for Self-organization: Dos and Don’ts of Agile Management
Agile is something for teams, right? True, but teams don’t function in a vacuum. As a manager, you can set the stage and support teams who want to increase their agility. This presentation explores three topics that managers can work on to make teams succeed and increase the company’s agility: Leadership, Collaboration, and Culture.

With agile, teams are supposed to make their own decisions on what to do and how to do. Managers should be delegating decisions to the team and trusting them to do the right thing. But letting go of control can be a scary thing.

In this talk, I will explore leadership approaches suitable for teams and managers that want to become agile. I’ll show how teams can use the approaches to become empowered, and how managers use them to guide teams towards producing valuable results.

To make agile work, people should feel psychologically safe to make decisions and try out things. It can be challenging to establish a culture that enables agile. Let’s explore what managers can do to create and nurture a culture that fosters experimentation, and what they can do to enable learning from failures and from things that go well.

To sum it up, I’ll provide a list of these things that managers should consider doing if they want their teams to be successful, and things that may be harmful to teams that they could stop doing.

Agile Business Day
The Agile Business Day is the only Italian conference of international scope that covers the themes of agility at a business level, organizational, technical and humanistic.

With speakers and thought leaders of international level, over 30 sessions in a day, video streaming, pre-conference workshops and extensive networking opportunities, Agile Business Day represents a unique opportunity for growth for companies and organizations both public and private for managers, professionals and anyone who wants to invest in individual and company growth.
