Essential Patterns of Successful Agile TransformationsNew
The very title of this workshop is meant to challenge you. Many don’t like to use the term transformation, instead, preferring adoption, migration, transition, business agility shift or some other phrase. However, successful implementations of agile require a transformation to occur at multiple levels (teams, leaders, managers, culture, and organization), and goes beyond mere implementation of time-boxed sprints, daily standups, and the use of a product backlog. This workshop was created because so many organizations struggle with how to move towards more agile approaches to product development. Join Shaun Bradshaw as he explores critical patterns for transformations including finding the right agile champion, setting up an Agile Transformation Team, why it’s critical for leadership to be agile first, and how to find and communicate the WHY behind your transformation. We’ll also explore some of the organizational (structure, roles, alignment) challenges that you’ll have to break down to then build back up. Finally, we’ll review the role that leadership plays in safety, culture, modeling, and generally guiding the transformation change journey. You’ll leave this workshop with an abundance of ideas around how to create an effective and balanced transformation backlog that you can immediately start executing for your own agile transformations.
