Agile Montreal Keynote – Rethinking Agile Transformation

Event Details

I am excited to be delivering a keynote at Agile Tour Montreal!
Title: Rethinking Agile Transformation
We have 10 years of data that describes why organizations struggle with Agile. Centralizing project management didn’t help us understand what’s going on with our projects. Centralizing HR didn’t engage our employees. Centralizing our process improvement group didn’t improve anything.

So why is it we think hiring a VP of Agile, and creating a centralized Agile transformation team will be any different? The problem might be that we use our existing organizational values, operating models, and cultures to bring about transformational change. We’ll explore how to think of transformational change as a series of small movements that rely on feedback-driven planning, and incorporating ideas about how social change actually happens.
