Summary

Agile is here to stay. The performance gains are undeniable. Yet this brings a significant shift in the expectations of how work gets done. Agile initiates a culture change in the engineering part of the organization, but the lack of integration of the rest of the company leads to new problems

We all know critical alignment is, now learn what agile is, and what this shift in values, priorities and processes means to you. Leave this seminar able to:

• Contrast traditional management with Agile approaches
• Write new job descriptions for the changed roles in an Agile organization
• Take a fresh look at how performance is managed and evaluated
• Change attitudes about transparency, information sharing, decision-making
• Prepare your organization for continuous improvement (change!)
• Recognize what training your people need to succeed
