Agility for Leaders – Learning to Teach in a World that Is Rejecting Hierarchy

It is indisputable that Agile adoption has grown exponentially, but too much of this growth has been horizontal, not vertical, and this phenomenon has been an impediment to the expansion of Agile values and frameworks beyond the project team. Organizations are not learning to be Agile! In this presentation, “Agility for Leaders – Learning to Teach in a World that Is Rejecting Hierarchy,” Jeff Dalton shows why the lack of teaching skills leaves Agile Leaders open to the most insidious of all agile anti-patterns – an organizational type mismatch where teams are embracing agility but multiple levels of leadership are not.
