Let's face it. Not every company makes the switch to Agile on the first try. A lot of times, it seems like you make the right moves but little or nothing actually changes. It's another non-transformational agile transformation. If you're the leader of this organization, how do you fix it? Well, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that it's probably not a technical problem. The bad news is that it's probably a corporate culture / people problem. This session will discuss those common people and corporate culture problems that slow or stop your agile transformation. For each of these problems, we'll discuss why they're slowing you down, what to do about them, and how to monitor them as your lead your org to Agility.

You will learn:

  • What are linguistic frames and how do you use them?
  • How do leaders get in their own way and what do you do about it?
  • How do you talk about scaling your teams? Is scaling up a bad idea?
