You know that you want to become a more agile development organization, but you aren’t sure how to begin. You’ve heard of successful, non-agile transitions where a strong, visionary leader plants a stake in the ground and says, “Let's take our organization there.” You might have also been a part of change efforts that started with a lone team thinking, “Who cares what management thinks, let's do this.” But you’re beginning to understand neither tactic, by itself, will lead to long-term success with agile. What you need is a multi-dimensional approach designed to help you achieve the sustainable change you desire.
In these presentations, leading agile speaker and author Mike Cohn describes how you can iterate toward increased agility by combining a senior-level guiding coalition with multiple action teams. He introduces the five steps necessary for any successful agile transition, as expressed by the acronym ADAPT: Awareness, Desire, Ability, Promote, and Transfer. Join him in exploring the true role of leaders and managers in guiding self-organizing teams toward agility. Take away proven patterns for getting started—Start Small, Stealth Mode, Going All In, Public Displays of Agility, Impending Doom, and more. Leave knowing what you must—and must not—do to succeed with agile in your organization and team.
