Practical Agile Leadership

Are you a manager, project/delivery lead, RTE, or ScrumMaster? If you’re thinking:

 

“I want/need to improve our Agile delivery,”

 

“Our next Agile initiative will be challenging,” or

 

“I want to grow as an Agile leader”

Register for “Practical Agile Leadership,” a two-day training with Gil Broza. Regardless of your starting point, it will take your performance as an Agile leader to the next level.

 

Note: 4 spots are left in the December 4-5 session in Toronto, so we added another Toronto session on January 16-17.

 

Almost every organization is interested in Agile now: starting to use it, expanding its use, or strengthening its implementation. People like you, who lead teams and projects, are key to successful delivery. Having supported hundreds of Agile leaders at companies large and small since 2004, I am familiar with their questions, concerns, and problems. My real-world experience and many mentors have taught me what works, what matters, what to watch out for, what to ignore, and what to do differently. Let me share all that with you.

 

This training will increase your ability to:

 

  • Explain the elements, structure, and significance of an Agile mindset (all in plain language)
  • Contextualize your role in the Agile setting
  • Launch work initiatives the Agile way
  • Control the cost of change for sustained Agility
  • Ensure higher Agility across the value stream
  • Use situational awareness and empowering techniques to help people grow and improve their results
  • Express the necessary conditions for team empowerment and engagement, and customize your role in fulfilling those conditions
  • Help your team achieve high performance with only a few techniques (and know which trouble signals to pick up on)
  • Increase team member collaboration and contribution by making a few simple changes to your meetings
  • Notice the pre-Agile attitudes and techniques you and the team have in your blind spot and replace them with Agile-minded ones
  • Move away from “implementing Agile practices” to working in an Agile manner and truly making the Agile promise happen
  • Have a reliable process for continually evolving your identity and role as an Agile leader

 

Each segment in this two-day training involves a mix of interactive teaching, individual and group activities, and discussions. We go light on theory and heavy on practical application. Expect conversations at multiple levels, frequent introspection, instructor advice, insights from your peers.

Logistics

Location: The December session will take place at the Holiday Inn Yorkdale at Dufferin and Highway 401. The location of the January session is TBD, but likely to be the same. (To be clear, this is a two-day course, not a four-day one. Sign up to whichever is more convenient for you.)
