Don’t Demonize your Managers
As organizations start their Agile journey, very soon the question of “What’s to become of the Managers?” comes up.
Yesterday’s heroes and firefighters find themselves without a clear space or role.
But surely there is a better way of handling these managers and the expertise and experience that they bring with them.
Our managers can be re-imagined and flourish as mentors, as experts, as change agents.
We would like to share the new avatar that our erstwhile managers can adopt in the new world while continuing with some of their existing responsibilities.
Also a few tips and tricks to make managers our allies in the quest for Agility.
Bad Things Hide in the Dark!
For large enterprises starting their Agile journey, the first step towards Agility is Transparency - the foundation for building a high-trust environment.
Yet, in a lot of large, traditional organizations, the public display of information, uniformly accessible to all, is unsettling.
Through a “scary” analysis of the impact of the lack of transparency, we aim to build a really strong case for why Transparency is the new Green!
To make the leap into Transparency easy, we will also share some tools which have come in handy and worked beautifully for us.
Our pursuit of transparency is dotted with failed attempts – we would love to share those so that others can make fresh mistakes and not repeat our mistakes.

What collaboration tools do you currently use with your teams?
Chances are you probably answered this question with the brand name of an agile project management software program. Is this really what drives collaboration in our teams? Is it as simple as a piece of software?
The research is clear: high performing team require great collaboration. While project management software is helpful, real collaboration can only occur when it is actively built within teams. We need tools and skills beyond software in order to increase collaboration in our teams.
Attend this session to explore how collaboration impacts performance, understand what ingredients promote collaboration, and gain hands on practice using new tools to supercharge collaboration and team performance.
