Summit Keynote: The Agile Hero’s Journey: Discovering the Treasure of Agile Transformation
Joseph Campbell, in his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, explains that myths from across the globe follow a similar pattern. He theorized that these myths were (and are) so powerful because every person sees in themselves the opportunity to improve and transform. Similarly, organizations seeking the treasure of agile transformation: increased productivity, better value for their customers, improved working relationships across the organization, etc. can relate to, at least some aspects of the Hero’s Journey.
Join Shaun Bradshaw, as he explains how organizational agile transformation aligns with the common “stages” of the Hero’s Journey, and the various roles leaders play along the way. For each of the major stages, Shaun will describe hallmark examples to help you recognize where your organization lands along the path, and provide insights on how to move to the next level. Attendees will leave this presentation with an understanding of where their organization is on its agile journey, recognition of the role you play in your organization's transformation, and what steps can be taken to get to the next stage in the process. Regardless of whether your organization just made the decision to go agile or it’s been doing agile for years, you will gain valuable insights from this presentation as organizational transformation is a never-ending effort.
