As the agile movement closes in on two decades, we have much to celebrate: team based agile is the software development norm across the world, adoption of scaled agile methods is growing as well, and business agility is now a thing. In this Age of Agile where we seek to apply agile principles and practices to entire enterprises, can our past be prologue for an amazing future Agile Management revolution?
If so, how can we extend agile from IT teams across business units end-to-end? How can these end-to-end teams operate as platforms for creativity and innovation? How can we unfreeze the middle management layer in our bureaucracies to unleash a post-bureaucratic management revolution? How can executives set organizational clarity and build professional capability to lead us with confidence into an uncertain future? How can these innovations help us raise employee engagement from abysmal depths to soaring heights not just on agile IT teams but across the board? Come join this conversation based session on Agile Management to explore answers to these questions and more. I’m excited to share my thoughts and learn from others as well in our shared agile journey.
