Many approaches to scaling Agile focus primarily on the adoption of common Agile practices at the team level. While this important, it's important to remember that Agile is a set of values and principles (defined in the Agile Manifesto). Effectively scaling Agile in organizations means that Agile principles and values need to be adopted throughout the organization and this often means that a cultural transformation needs to take place. To faciliate culture change, we must understand culture, its levels and how it can be influenced and changed. Agile transformations often stall because those leading the transformation fail to view it through the lens of culture. This session provides Agile change management techniques for Agile change leaders, change agents and anyone interested in leading or participating in Agile adoption in an organization.
Learning Outcomes:
  • The attendee should understand Agile at scale as the adoption of Agile values and principles throughout the the organization
  • The attendee should be able to observe Agile culture through the lens of the Schein model.
  • The attendee should have tools for identifying artifacts, values and tacit assumptions in their organizations.
  • The attendee should be able to recognize the different subcultures in their organization.
  • The attendee should be able to create a plan for leading Agile culture change in their organization.
  • The attendee should be able to assess and evaluate the degree of Agile culture adoption in their organization.
