Agile Business Day 2020

September 11, 2020 - September 12, 2020

I will be speaking at Agile Business Day 2020 about leading agile teams. This year, Agile Business Day is an online event on September 11-12.

Leading for Self-organization: Dos and Don’ts of Agile Management

Agile is something for teams, right? True, but teams don’t function in a vacuum. As a manager, you can set the stage and support teams who want to increase their agility. This presentation explores three topics that managers can work on to make teams succeed and increase the company’s agility: Leadership, Collaboration, and Culture.

With agile, teams are supposed to make their own decisions on what to do and how to do. Managers should be delegating decisions to the team and trusting them to do the right thing. But letting go of control can be a scary thing.

In this talk, I will explore leadership approaches suitable for teams and managers that want to become agile. I’ll show how teams can use the approaches to become empowered, and how managers use them to guide teams towards producing valuable results.

To make agile work, people should feel psychologically safe to make decisions and try out things. It can be challenging to establish a culture that enables agile. Let’s explore what managers can do to create and nurture a culture that fosters experimentation, and what they can do to enable learning from failures and from things that go well.

To sum it up, I’ll provide a list of these things that managers should consider doing if they want their teams to be successful, and things that may be harmful to teams that they could stop doing.
