How to Help Your Team Deliver
As an Agile team leader, your biggest challenge is also your biggest asset.
The human side of Agile is tricky. It's the least manageable, understood, and appreciated asset in an Agile environment. Even if your customers are reasonably happy and your developers seem to be doing okay, you know your team is capable of more: delivering great products and staying ahead of ever-changing demands.
You need a team that’s self-organized, energetic, and flexible, even in tough situations. But how do you build it and lead it?
Whether you're a ScrumMaster, project manager, functional manager, or team leader, you want to feel good about using Agile and to create the conditions for great results. But the project management skills you honed in traditional environments don't always apply to the role of Agile team leader. The Human Side of Agile fills this gap, guiding you to:
- Establish yourself as a confident and capable leader who adds value
- Build and lead an engaged team that can handle almost any challenge
- Cultivate collaboration and a continuous improvement mind-set
- Reap the full benefits of Agile in the real world with real people
