Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything - Bernard Shaw points out an important ingredient, the Agile mindset to welcome change for progress in an Agile Transformation.

But what to do what change is the only constant? Then it is important to connect emotionally and psychologically with the people during the Agile Transformation journey. But how?

This talk is my personal story about experiences with Agile Transformations for 8 years in three different companies. Often, I observed and wondered why it is difficult to communicate with people either co-located or remote and felt that it is the Psychological, not the Physical distance that makes communication effective?

Change is uncomfortable, fearful and requires work. I will share my tested tips on how to make it more welcoming by exploring three key areas.

  • Why it is important to understand the dynamics of a team's culture
  • Why Psychological safe culture is key to Agile Transformation
  • Use the power of facilitation and active listening
