Agile for managers – Challenges, operation, and impact on leaders
After giving this introduction training to over a hundred people managers, I have decided to make the presentation material available to the general public in an attempt to help organizations successfully transition to Agile.
This presentation is introductory level as it introduces some of the most common reasons why organizations choose to adopt Agile approaches. It presents some high level statistics on software development project success (and failure) to demonstrate why the traditional project management approach may not always be the best approach to successfully deliver projects.
The presentation introduces what Agile is (and isn’t) and the reasons justifying its adoption. Once the Agile concepts have been presented, the material introduces the Scrum approach by giving a walk through of a typical process.
The presentation ends with the main impacts on people managers within organizations who are adopting Agile.
I hope you will find the presentation useful to help you move your transition in the right direction. Feel free to circulate the material.
