True Agile Leaders™ recognize that they have the ability to be architects of culture. They take deliberate steps in order to model the values and principles of Agile, because they recognize that their teams are watching, and their actions shape the behavior of others. They focus on developing authentic, value-driven, cultures in order to maximize the full impact of Agile. They recognize culture is the difference between doing Agile and BEING Agile. This class will change the way you think about everything from your physical office space to the way you hire and fire team members. Based on actual experience, this class is designed to teach practical approaches to influencing culture in a way that promotes true success with Agile for years to come.

How would you describe your company culture?

If you asked your team members would they agree with you? Does your environment match the culture you are trying to achieve?

  •  Increased accountability amongst your team members; watching them taking it personally when they succeed or fail

  • Less turnover and higher retention of key team members

You’ll leave with a proven means to evaluate and assess your organization’s culture, to more precisely determine your current level of Agility and opportunities for growth. You’ll study the explicit elements of building an Agile culture, such as physical layout and design of workspace, personal accountability, and organizational trust… all explained in a way that is clear and allows for immediate implementation. And you’ll experience a deep dive into the skill of influence so that you can enlist others’ help in your mission to grow an Agile culture with your organization.
