    A successful agile transformation is a challenge - so how to ensure that these gains will be resilient and sustain over time? How can one be sure that the agile values and principles will be passed on to future generations? What charactaristics differentiate the agile organization that is successful today and the one that will continue to be successful well into the future? 

    This lecture leverages Sean's 13 years of military experience to explore how leaders deliberately build great self-sustaining organizations.  Leaning on first-hand case studies from coaching dozens of agile teams, learn about the leadership behaviours that build self-sustaining cultures, and those which fail to see beyond just the methologies.

    An all-encompassing effort such as a full-scale agile transformation goes to the very roots of an organization and tends to shake things up quite dramatically. Indeed, it’s very much like undergoing heart surgery AND brain surgery – simultaneously.

    Imagine the damage caused from a failed organization-wide change:

    • Loss of credibility
    • Loss of trust
    • Loss of face and reputation
    • Strong demotivation and loss of commitment and faith on the part of employees
    • Clinging even tighter to the old (safe!) ways of doing things
    • Diminished success of future attempts by leaving behind a wary and highly skeptical audience

    After the storm passes, where things have settled often determines how and where the organization goes from that point onwards. Ensure your transformation plan succeeds and the pieces fall into place according to the set goals and plans -- and not according to someone’s whims and fancies; politics; cultural and attitude issues; or naysayers.

    Organizations invest energy, effort and real dollars to stay in trend. Here's one of the trend: Agile is no longer a buzz word, Scaling Agile is. Terms like Enterprise Agile, Scaled Agile, SAFe, LESS, DAD, Agility Path are conveniently thrown around in meetings and speeches as organizations line up to get on the bandwagon of 'Scaling Agile'. Scaling Agile - from the team and product level to the organizational level has it's own benefits and challenges. Is scaling Agile right for you? Are you ready for it? If you've been thinking of scaling, you might be in luck. In this session, we will discuss grounds up approach of how to analyze and evaluate if an organization (or a business unit) is ready for scaling Agile. You'll create your own set of evaluation criteria specific to your organization's situation and learn steps your organization can take to be more prepared for scaling Agile and reap organization-wide benefits. The focus will remain on your context and not on promoting any particular scaling framework.

            "Scaling. Its about the context not the process." - Jeff Sutherland

    PS: This will be a no slides, hands-on workshop. Be prepared to actively participate throughout the session.
