Agile approaches have downplayed the role of management. Too many people say, โ€œWe donโ€™t need no stinkinโ€™ managers.โ€ On the contrary. We need managers to create and refine the agile culture and create leadership capability across the organization. Without modern management, any agile transformation dies a quick and ugly death. Instead, itโ€™s time to invite managers to change their behaviors to transform to an agile culture. Learn to see and create management excellence for your agile culture.

In this session, Johanna Rothman talked about the myths, traps, and illusions that prevent management from achieving leadership excellence and agility. She showed us actions to bypass several of these myths, traps, and illusions; How to learn which management behaviors to change, to serve the agile team or organization; and learn ways to invite your or your manager’s thinking patterns to change.

Do you want people to feel part of a group/team or part of an activity? Then ensure that they are included and engaged.
Do you find facilitating a large group of people unmanageable, people disengaged? Try Liberating Structures with your teams and organization.

Liberating Structures, created by Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz, covers a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team. It makes it possible to build the kind of meeting that everybody looks forward to attending and participating.

Participants learn how to use these micro-structures to simplify meeting outcomes, help group collaborate and become more productive.

“How well is your delivery team doing?” That seems like a straightforward question, but it is more complicated that it might sound at first. Do we know what it means to “do well” or is it one of those things that is different to everyone?

In this session we will discuss how we can meaningfully measure outcomes and what we can learn from the measurements. We will also touch on common pitfalls and provide insight in how to avoid them.

You will walk away with information on how to design metrics for your own purposes, and get started with some concrete examples to measure productivity of a delivery team. In short, you will have all the information to answer “how well your team is doing” meaningfully.
