A few years ago everyone wanted to know how to convince their executives to go agile. Today's executives are asking their teams how they'll get them there. While we have made significant progress changing the hearts and minds of senior leadership, executives have a fiduciary responsibility to the performance of their organizations. They demand a greater level of assurance that what you plan to do is actually going to work. Executives are sick and tired of being told to trust the team and that everything will be okay. Better than anyone, executives see the dysfunction in their organizations. They want line of sight to how agile is going to help them make things better.
This talk is going to explore a safe, pragmatic, and repeatable formula for leading change in large organizations. The holy grail for an executive, is to tie dollars spent and activities performed, to internal improvement metrics and ultimately improved business performance. We'll start by discussing the elements of an agile transformation business case and how to identify a meaningful value proposition for change. Next we'll consider how to assess the organization and build an agile transformation strategy and roadmap that encourages an iterative and incremental approach to change. Finally we'll explore the metrics and controls that help you know if you're on the right track.
Throughout the presentation, we'll explore the change management and engagement techniques necessary to make sure you are building meaningful organizational support as you engage the enterprise. We'll discuss how to build and execute a change management strategy to keep everyone safe and informed throughout the transformation. We'll show how to sustain and improve the changes over time, ultimately creating an organizational ecosystem where business agility is part of the fundamental DNA of the company. The goal of this talk is to take the magic out of agile transformation and show you how to systematically and planfully introduce agile into your organization.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will leave the session with an understanding of how to build an organizational business case for agile, how to craft a transformation strategy and roadmap, how to build consensus internally for the transformation, and how to support the transformation with meaningful metrics that reinforce and support the changes.
  • Furthermore, we will go through how to structure the transformation, how to create an effective communication plan, and how to do all the necessary change management to make sure that everyone stays safe and supported through the transformation.
