Session: Managing Your Teams’ Agile Competency
Wednesday 10.00 - 10.50
Room: Ken Lee
Going “Agile” can confer a number of benefits to an organization, but all too often those promised benefits aren’t fully delivered. Do you have the visibility you need to understand progress and make timely market-focused decisions? Do your teams ship on a frequency your customers can, and want, to accept? Does innovation flourish in and across teams? How about reduced cycle time? A model of the predictable stages of agile team competency helps managers and leaders define the benefits they’re getting, determine the benefits they really want, and plan next steps. Join Diana Larsen in an exploration of ways leaders can use the model to analyze and monitor progress of Agile competence in teams.
Drawing on 20+ years of experience working with technical professionals, Diana Larsen advises leaders, consults with managers, and coaches teams on adopting Agile work systems. She helps to create workplaces where dev teams focus on frequent delivery of high value software products and services that customers want and use. A member of the Agile Alliance BoD, Diana co-authored two books; Liftoff: Launching Agile Teams & Project toward Success; and Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great.
