Coaching and Leading Agility: A Discussion of Agile Tuning
Are you an agile practitioner wanting to take your agility to the next level? Are you looking to gain real value from agile instead of simply more talk? Even though many are using agile methods, not all are seeing big returns from their investment. David Hussman shares his experiences and describes a short assessment that identifies both strengths and weaknesses in your use of agile methods. Creating an assessment helps you examine the processes you are using, why you are using them, and if they are providing real value. This assessment guides you through the remainder of the tutorial, helping you tune your current processes and embrace new tools—product thinking, product delivery, team building, technical excellence, program level agility, and more. Leave with an actionable coaching plan that is measurable and contextually significant to your organization. If you want to promote real agility—or lead others to do so—come ready to think, challenge, question, listen, and learn.
