Choosing Change- How to Enable a Shift to Agile

Is your Agile implementation going slow, failing, or not sustaining? April Mills, author of Everyone is a Change Agent, will describe several common mistakes made in implementations and outline techniques you can use right away to get your implementation back on track.

Examples of the common mistakes include: trying to force people to be Agile, keeping the goal of becoming Agile vague, and not protecting the Agile people and behaviors from the status quo. Improving your Agile implementation is more within your control than you think.

April is an expert change agent and author of “Everyone is a Change Agent”. She blogs at and tweets as @engineforchange.

April will have copies of her book available for $10. Feel free to stick around after her presentation and get your book signed.

Change Management in the Startup Ecosystem

Change Management in the Startup Ecosystem is a workshop designed to help managers, teams, and leaders understand and manage change in their startups. This will be an interactive, practical session with overviews of established models, enlightening conversations, and activities for applying the models that hold strong in startups.

Let's be real, in a startup there is always a change happening! It's constant. And if employees can be more aware of the emotional and organizational implications of change, and have strategies and tools to help with these transitions, work will be smoother, and goals will be achieved quicker.

This workshop is designed for people managers of all levels, but can be beneficial for individual contributors and HR employees as well. Before the session, we'll ask you to think about a change you (and/or your team members) are actively experiencing, and come ready to discuss and work through this real-world scenario.
