Planning for Failure
Your agile transformation is doomed. You might be working on great things. You’ve got training, coaching, cross functional teams, continuous delivery, you’re scaling agile, etc.
You’re still doomed.
Why? Because agile is just one part of a much larger picture - which requires people not only to change their processes and software, but how they see themselves and their place in your organisation. This change requires more than transformational thinking. It requires revolutionary thinking. It can be done, but it won’t happen by accident. Come and find out what you need to have a successful revolution.
We will be looking at the common agile transformation strategies that are applied today (eg top down, bottom up, transforming to 'being' agile) and where each of those approaches is insufficient.
We'll look at what truly revolutionary organisations look like today and why you need to be like them. We'll look at the skills that are often neglected or missing in those leading the transformation and why ignoring them can lead to disaster.
And finally, we'll put it all together to show you the steps you'll need to take to successfully lead a revolution in your organisation.
