A Presentation to Myself on Organisational Agile Transformations
Dear Self, in your career you’re going to lead large scale transformation projects all aimed at developing companies into killer Agile delivery environments. Now I have access to a time machine I’m able to teleport myself back to a time just before I embark on those journeys and I can give myself the value of hindsight! If I let myself go ahead without advising me, then I’ll think an Agile transformation is about the adoption of a process and over time I’ll learn it’s not! I’ll think that architecture and architects are irrelevant and they aren’t! For too long I’ll ignore the significance of diverse teams and culture! I’ll start the transformation process in the technical teams and build out to the wider organisation which is just flawed! I’ll try to eradicate project management, plans, managers, architects, and standards….. Oh, there is just so much to tell me!
This presentation talks about approaches for building new delivery teams, advice on how to make existing teams more effective and insights on approaches which have been used to transform organisations.
Technical leaders, agile coaches, scrum masters, architects and anyone interested in organisational transformation and leadership.
