DANIEL MEZICK on:

HOW TO IMMEDIATELY IMPROVE YOUR RESULTS WITH AGILE


Most Agile adoptions are implemented as "push". Teams typically "must do" Scrum and other specific practices as prescribed by well-meaning management.

Ken Blanchard, one of the most influential management consultants in the world today, has this to say about the purely "top-down" approach to change in organizatons:

   "...top-down change ("push") is bound to fail due to low involvement on the part of each individual involved."

   "...If you don't get buy-in, workers might comply at the beginning but will revert back to old behaviors at the end."

   "...To succeed with a change: increase the amount of influence of the people being asked to change."

During this session, you will learn:

   * How to DOUBLE the results you are getting with your Agile adoption

   * How others are improving their Agile results using a very simple process

   * How to use this process, by actually experiencing it in this session

   * How to implement this process immediately in your own organization to dramatically improve the results you are getting

People in the following roles will benefit most from participation in this event:

   * Company leaders
   * Managers
   * Software architects, UX designers, BA's, and documentation professionals
   * Software developers

In this session we will learn about Open Agile Adoption and exit the event with tools you can use TOMORROW to improve the results you are getting with your Agile adoption program

Open Agile Adoption (OAA) is a repeatable technique for getting a rapid and lasting Agile adoption. It works with what you are currently doing, and can be added at any time. Open Agile Adoption helps your Agile program succeed. A hypothesis of Open Agile Adoption is that increases in engagement drives increases in productivity, after a brief delay. The purpose of Open Agile Adoption is to increase levels of engagement on the part of everyone involved.
