Get your mind set on Agile

 

Agile can help you achieve better business outcomes, and it’s not just for techies. Contrary to popular belief, however, you’re unlikely to create agility merely by implementing practices and tools. Instead, it’s the mindset – the subjective and abstract choices you and others make as you work – that will produce agility. Gil will make the mindset tangible and share practical strategies for adopting it.

 

The Director of Enterprise Agility at a financial institution had this to say:

 

“Gil was the keynote speaker for our internal Agile conference. He did a fantastic job helping attendees understand not only the importance of having an Agile mindset, but also why one is essential for any organization going through an Agile transformation. He presented the content in a relatable, interesting and thought-provoking way. He helped participants understand how having an Agile mindset is something we all can and should embrace. It is obvious Gil is an expert in this space, and I highly recommend him as a keynote speaker for any organization regardless of where they are on their Agile journey.”

 

Feedback from participants included the following remarks:

 

  • “Gil brought a perspective to Agile that I hadn’t thought of, and I see how I can apply what he shared to my everyday work.”
  • “The presentation was energizing and connected well with the way we work.”
  • “The presentation spoke to our organization and culture which really helped me see ways I can apply Agile.”
  • “I appreciate the message that Agile works outside of IT and outside of software development.”
  • “Wow! I learned so much.”

Individuals and Interactions: Ten Lessons from Putting People Before Process

 

For decades, most technology businesses have considered standardized processes to be a key ingredient to their success. Other enterprises made a different assumption: that cultivating their staff and growing teams, who would own their processes, was a better enabler of success. Agile, which has been in widespread use for the last 15 years, is an example of such a mind-set. Truly valuing individuals and interactions over processes and tools is challenging, yet many organizations have made it work. Along the way, they’ve discovered necessary conditions for sustaining people-first environments, as well as a host of surprising benefits that carry over to all forms of knowledge work. In this talk, Gil Broza will share the top 10 lessons of putting people before process, learned from real-world Agile implementations.
