NOVEMBER MEETING OF AGILE CONNECTICUT
DANIEL MEZICK on: THE AGILE ADOPTION: Thriving or Diving?
Is your Agile adoption thrivingor diving?
This is an experiential session where you will learn a new way to sustain a lasting Agile adoption inside your business unit.
Are you asking these questions?
I am a business unit leader. Why isn't Agile creating more predictability about date & cost?
If I wait this out, will it just GO AWAY like those other process-change programs in the 90s?
I'm a Team Lead. Are Team Leads and Architects still leaders inside our Agile teams?
I'm a Business Analyst. What do Business Analysts actually do inside Agile teams? Outside of Agile teams?
I'm a Manager. Do managers still manage? I thought Agile teams were self-managed
I'm a Project Managerdoes that make me a Manager too? Or am I a Scrum Master now?
I used to understand my job. Now I definitely don't, and I also have a kid in college. Do I still have my job?
This stuff is hard. In the typical Agile adoption, people who have spent years doing very good work are suddenly expected to completely change how that work is performed.
And usually, someone else is making that decision. Sometimes, people are told to leave one team and join another.
All these changes to the way we work can create substantial worry
Meanwhile, as we figure all of this out, there is the very real pressure of very real work to do. And deliver.
And so: how do we learn a new way of working even as we are expected to consistently deliver big, on budget and on time?
In this session, Agile coach Daniel Mezick shows you how. He will lead you through a very simple process that can help your Agile adoption thrive. After a very brief introduction to the core concepts, we will immediately move into a group exercise that engages everyone. in a way that surfaces the best ideasand puts them to work. This is an experiential session where you will learn a new way to sustain a lasting Agile adoption inside your business unit.
When our group exercise is complete, we will debrief. You exit the session with direct experience, and with real tools you can use tomorrow to help your ongoing Agile adoption process thrive. You also exit this session with a printed handout of reference web links for diving deeper into the material.
