Persevering through Agile Transformation
Persevering through a scaled agile transformation often requires more than strong character and a firm foundation in the fundamentals of Agile – it also requires a big toolbelt. This session will provide you with the fundamentals of organizational development and change management to add a few tools to your belt.
Keep your eye on the prize
We’ll start by grounding ourselves in Agile principles and set the stage with the unique benefits and rewards of multi-team agile transformation. And, knowing our prize must be hard-won; we’ll also tee up some of the unique challenges.
Manage through the ups and downs
Here, we’ll identify the Agile practices we are moving toward contrasted with those we are moving from. More than that, we’ll explore how to enable our Agile journey through the art and science of organizational development and change management.
Stay the course
Resistance is natural (and not always futile) and it comes in many shapes and sizes. We’ll dive into the sources, types, and examples of resistance including how to turn it around and get everyone back on course.
To close, we’ll explore the ceremonies of Agile and propose a ceremony of celebration your successes and failures. We’ll examine the impact of both on your organization, your culture, and the success of your Agile transformation.
