Enterprise Agile Transformation initiatives are BIG. Change at this scale of thousands is tough.
The Leaders and Executives involved in these initiatives are going through their own personal transformation. Change at this scale of one is equally tough.
Since our last session at Agile India 2016, (March 2016), we have worked with several hundred more leaders, put on two gatherings for leadership story telling, published two books etc.. You'll hear a lot of new stories direct from the field, with those experiencing the transformation firsthand.
Siraj Sirajuddin (SPCT4) has worked with hundreds of executives leading enterprise agile transformation initiatives. These are their stories of personal growth and individuation. We will hear how transformation at a personal level is the leverage for transformation at a collective level. We will also learn of unique methods that activate personal transformation for leaders who are ready to step into their leader persona but are unable to get that from traditional leadership training and coaching methods.

What do you enjoy most with your coffee talk friend, that friend with whom you can be yourself, seek help and express ideas? Does anyone even need an answer to understand the feeling?
That’s what team, in fact every Organizational role, expects from a ScrumMaster. ScrumMaster is a Servant Leader and not just another manager role from fancy Agile/Scrum jargon. Now a regular mindset is to operate out of authority associated with a certain role. ScrumMasters generally come across saying things like: My team doesn't turn up for ceremonies on time. My team doesn't listen to me, but argues on Scrum framework. It's difficult to make my team follow Scrum framework. How to motivate my team, they don't see value in me. On the surface of it, other Coaches and ScrumMasters will say you as ScrumMaster don't know how to do your job, OR explain your team about Scrum Framework, OR may be you don't know the framework yourself. NO!! That's not the point. All that is fine, you need to know that and I am sure you know 70% of that and you can always scale-up your knowledge on that. But what you don't know is that you still haven't become your team's Servant Leader. How do you become one?
In this talk I am not going to talk about what and why of role ‘ScrumMaster’, we already know that. But I want to shed some light on the most ignored part – How. What human aspect makes a ScrumMaster a friend, philosopher and guide? Can anyone who is a CSM, or SAFe SM or Scrum.org SM can be one such ScrumMaster? In short, I want to talk about qualities that make you a ScrumMaster material. For a ScrumMaster to be able to facilitate anything, be it process, cross-functional team, motivation or conflict resolution, it is really important to be able to connect with his team members and enroll them in his vision and mission of creating a dream team. He should be able to create a space of trust where individuals feel safe to share.

WIP - Would be finalised tomorrow
Coaching and mindset are the most used and abused words in agile context.
- We want coaching? But what exactly is coaching? How do we exactly coach?
- We want to empower? But how exactly do we empower? Just declaring empowerment doesn't work.
- We want to change mindset? But what is mindset?
- Can mindset be changed by anyone outside? What does neuroscience and adult learning theory says about it?
- What are some of the coaching models / frameworks available? Where and how can I start?
These are some of the questions we try answer and practice using role plays and exercises.
