CTO School Brisbane - Jumping in the deep end - My journey as an Agile Leader

246 views

Published on

Have you ever jumped into the deep end to only realise what you’ve done after the fact? This is what happened to me. I’d jumped from team based roles, to an executive role. And it felt like it happened overnight. The fortunate thing was that I’d been working with Agile teams for years where the values and principles of Agile have prepared me to be able to adapt to this new role.

During this talk, I will share with you my journey, both the good and bad parts, and how Agile has helped me as a first time leader. We will look at some of the values and principles, tools and techniques that I’ve adapted to help me as a leader, and my hope is to help you as an Agile leader too.
