Agile adoption, and the values that underlie Agile, are often at odds with the prevailing culture within organisations. As such, the culture of the organisation where Agile is adopted, shapes the Agile adoption and its success.
Last month I attended the Wellington Certified Agile Leadership (CAL1) course delivered by Toronto-based Certified Enterprise Coach Michael Sahota and hosted by Equinox IT.
It was a two day journey into the leadership difference between 'doing Agile' and 'being Agile', and a discussion about the conditions needed to ‘be Agile’. Michael took us through his high performance playbook, with a focus on the importance of leadership, culture and change in success – and an exploration of why telling teams to "go do Agile" doesn’t result in the high performance teams we need in our organisations.
Many thanks to Michael Sahota who yesterday ran an interactive webinar talking about the 'Certified Agile Leadership' course and answering questions that people had about Agile Leadership and about the course.
Movies normally start off nicely...
Things are going marvellously. Your people have been on the training. They're using Agile practices. They've got the Agile lingo down pat…
YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY TO ORGANISATIONAL AGILITY!
We're thrilled to have Michael Sahota, a Canadian-based Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coach visiting with us in April this year.
