Crafting an Agile Transformation

Based on 12 years of experience in numerous transformations, some small, some mammoth, some successful and some not, this talk will outline how to craft a successful Agility transformation from scratch to finish. 

The talk will address the following million-dollar questions:

• Why would you even want to transform and why is Business Agility one of the most popular options today? 

• Once you’ve decided to transform, where do you start and how to plan and setup the transformation for success?

• What are the parts of a business or organization that need to be transformed? Think of the 3 ‘S’s – Structure, Systems and Style.

• What is the target transformation state?

• How do you manage the transformation and tackle the issue of scale?

• What to do when the organizational antibodies come for you?

• What does success look like and how do you measure it?

• When should you stop and get the hell out? 

A talk filled with real world stories and ‘too funny to be true’ incidents that will show you the way, or what to avoid?

Target audience:

• All Executives/managers/leaders who are a part of an Agility transformation or thinking about one

• All Agile coaches and transformation team members

• Project and change managers

• Agile practitioners
