Practical Agile Leadership

Are you a manager/director, 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 unique training with Gil Broza. Regardless of your starting point, it will take your performance as an Agile leader or a supporter of leaders to the next level.

 

Almost every knowledge-work organization is now starting to use Agile, 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 — in plain language — the elements, structure, and significance of an Agile mindset
  • Contextualize your leadership role in an Agile environment
  • Launch work initiatives the Agile way
  • Ensure higher Agility across the value stream
  • Minimize the cost of change and maximize safety with Technical Agility
  • Express the necessary conditions for empowerment and engagement, and customize your role in fulfilling those conditions
  • Use situational awareness and empowering techniques to help people grow and improve their results
  • 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
  • Realize which 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 training involves a mix of interactive teaching, group discussions, activities, and reflection. We go light on theory and heavy on practical application. Expect conversations at multiple levels, frequent introspection, instructor advice, and insights from your peers.
