  7. 7. Mission Command is the conduct of military operations through decentralized execution, using mission orders to enable disciplined initiative within the commander's intent. Done well, it empowers agile and adaptive leaders to successfully operate under conditions of uncertainty, exploit fleeting opportunities, and most importantly achieve unity of effort. Importantly, it helps establish mutual trust and shared understanding throughout the force.

  26. 26. To confidently walk away from an organization, knowing that they will continue to discover new and better ways of developing software my success criteria: @SeanDunn10
  27. 27. SOME PATTERNS • Bring leadership into the conversation • Focus on behaviours – let delivery be a consequence • Accept short-term risk • Develop leaders – at all levels – to be Agile coaches • Create training and development plan, courses & materials • Developing others is a value – rewards and promotion are based on • Be deliberate about your hiring strategy @SeanDunn10
  28. 28. IN CONCLUSION • Building a self-sustaining organization requires deliberate thought, effort, and investment • Sustain the values and the principles – not the practices • Agile values are organizational values • Culture is leadership driven • Lead by example – model the desired behaviour
