Since the Department of Defense issued “How to Detect Agile BS,” there have been many so-called experts suggesting that developers are to blame for the challenges organizations face when scaling agile.
In “Agile BS and the Leadership Impediment: The Truth about Great Big Agile,” Jeff Dalton shows why that assumption is 100% wrong. Drawing upon concepts from his latest book, “Great Big Agile: An OS for Agile Leaders,” Jeff shows that 45% of agile teams say they lack management support, and 51% of managers report that they do not have leadership skills needed for large-scale agility*. Clearly developers are not the problem.
Attendees of “Agile BS and the Leadership Impediment: The Truth about Great Big Agile” will gain an understanding of how to take the concepts from agile that have become so popular with development teams around the world, and apply them to senior management in a way that’s never been done before, to make agile successful in their organizations.
No one changes anything serious about themselves or their organization without good reason. It is tough work to break a pattern of behavior. One of the worst organizationally is the dreaded competitive VISION, it crystallizes almost everything human beings dread about coming to work.
But I am a leader and leaders lead by missionizing people – So if this is true how do I get my people, teams and organization to galvanize and reach their potential?
In transformational period leaders often fail to connect to anything but an individual’s sense of survival, and so they get survivalist responses. When people’s world shifts, so does their sense of what’s valuable in their work and themselves. Asking for transformational change is asking people to embrace a new vision of themselves and their worth, that’s world altering — It needs to be generative when instead it is often mechanical and dead.
Together we are going to change that.
