Agile Leadership – Being an Effective Leader in an Agile Environment 

Transitioning a team or organization to an Agile mindset requires knowledge, coordination, and proper execution. It also, however, requires an element that is often missed or misunderstood, which causes failure and/or frustration to the organization, and eventual loss of trust toward the methodology: proper leadership involvement. This presentation will cover some of the key areas for the leadership roles and responsibilities in an Agile transformation, to enable the change and maintain its success past the initial stage, as the leadership team is seen as an integral and critical part of the effort, rather than external stakeholders, looking in.

 Learning objectives:

  • Transitioning to an Agile mindset
  • Proper leadership involvement
  • Leadership roles and responsibilities in an Agile transformation
