As Agile methods become more universal, executives and managers must learn how to
steer and support Agile adoption. This two-day workshop will prepare leaders within
your organization to drive Agile programs and guide their enterprises in rapidly changing
business environments. They will learn how to transform teams and organizations, making
them more efficient, innovative, and nimble. Many Agile transformations improve team
dynamics and collaboration but fall short of their goals to impact the larger organization.
A full transformation depends not only on buy-in from teams, but strong leadership
from executives and middle management. This leadership requires a unique set of skills
Enterprise Agile adoption requires a multitier approach: Agile can be scaled to larger teams and complex projects by linking project teams and coordinating their activities. Program and portfolio management are important for large-scale Agile initiatives to communicate a strategic product vision, deliver value across organizational silos, and manage dependencies between departments and teams.
Underpinning all of this is a shift in mindset for individuals and teams. The Agile mindset must be supported by an organizational culture that values transparency, collaboration, flexibility, ownership, and self-organization.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Executives, directors or senior managers motivated to lead an Agile adoption, or looking to understand and drive Agile adoption at the program and portfolio level.
