Agile development methods and practices are radically different from ‘waterfall’ or sequential, phased approaches. Agile development has become mainstream in software development over the last decade and has recently spread beyond software to other domains. It is important for leaders and manager to understand how to build, develop, and lead Agile teams -- not just for your company, but also for your own career.

This workshop introduces leaders and managers to a cohesive set of methods, practices, and principles to maximize business results from Agile and Lean development, while also cultivating a workplace where people thrive. The workshop defines and clarifies the roles of leaders, first-line managers, middle managers, and executives using materials drawn from over a decade of Agile and Lean adoption experience covering tens of thousands of people within Fortune 100 companies. It also addresses what does and doesn't work well in Agile and Lean adoptions across a diverse set of global cultures.

The workshop topics are highly dynamic and customizable. ~80% will be based on participant interests. These are a few of the topics participants can choose from: -Agile mindset -Shared leadership -Great teams -Work environment -Resources -Experiments -Vision -Common goals -Shared learning -Welcome change -Iteration -Mastery -Diversity -Reflection -Sensemaking -Visualization -Deliver Value

This class is designed for leaders and managers of Agile and Lean teams. This includes executive and organizational level management at all levels. Leaders and managers in non-Agile and Lean environments will also find the workshop refreshing and helpful as the concepts are broadly applicable.
