03/28/2016 AGILE-CT presents ***AGILE AFTER HOURS*** with guest speaker DANIEL MEZICK
MONDAY March 28th, 330PM to 600PM:
ENGAGING YOUR AGILE WORKFORCE
Attend this session if you are seeking ways to immediately get stronger results from your current Agile transformation program.
Successful Agile transformations run on ENGAGEMENT. Right? This is literally where all the gains come from. Employee engagement.
It is kind of hard to imagine a successful Agile adoption where the employee engagement levels are very low.
GALLUP says that employees are about 25% engaged at work. Question: How can we improve these numbers in our Agile adoptions?
Attend this session to learn 5 specific facilitation techniques and 3 specific meeting formats that do exactly that. Each of these specific methods will improve the levels of engagement in your Agile transformation program without adding any additional cost whatsoever.
This is a lively experiential session where you do a series of fast-paced activities with the others at your table, in a learn-by-doing format.
We'll work in small groups and engage in several experiential exercises.
You exit the session with some very specific techniques, some very useful takeaway materials, and the know-how to actually implement what you learned during this session, at work, the very next day.
