Lost in Transformation? Using the Integral Agile Model to Find Your Way out of the Maze

You think you have your transformation figured out, but then your efforts to address one issue, you create unintended consequences that become the next hurdle. The only way to find your way out of the transformation maze is to understand your complex ecosystem and plan for change. In this workshop, we will explore how leveraging both the Integral Agile Model and a framework, such as SAFe can lead to executing successful transformation strategies. Join us as we discuss how to pair the Integral Agile Model with your framework to create a holistic view of your entire eco-system of leaders, vendors, compliance needs, and policy. We will also explore how to bring organizational goals to life by creating a priorities-based roadmap. If you're feeling lost in transformation, this workshop is for you!

    Claire Atwell - Agile Coaching and Organizational Change Management - The Power Couple to Improve Agile Outcomes

    45 Mins

    Agile coaching is essential as keeper of the agile flame in an agile organization or transformation, but we can’t do it alone and have a lot to learn from Organizational Change Management. The traditional Organizational Change Management practice emphasizes the human aspect that should be primary focus if we want to influence the “culture” of an organization, beyond basic agile practices. In this session, we will look at the ADKAR model for change, and how to combine that with agile frameworks to make a lasting cultural foundation in your organization, to create true business agility beyond the IT department.

    Claire Atwell - 6 Boundary Spanning Practices to Boost your Organizational Agility

    45 Mins

    Getting to Business Agility requires expanding beyond agile practices strung together, it requires the entire organization working in concert to decrease time to market with a forward looking approach to their industry. We need to focus on organizational agility, as well as strategic agility. Ernst and Chrobot-Mason introduced these practices in their 2011 book “Boundary Spanning Leadership”. Join me in sharing my experience using Boundary Spanning Practices at a large financial institution to enable an enterprise agile transformation that sticks, while introducing the practices to you and giving you hands on practice. We will speed-date through each practice to give you an idea of how it works, with resources to dig deeper if this appeals to you.
