Transitioning to Agile Leadership

Add to calendar

The key to helping your teams transform and be successful in an agile world is to know what skills you need to be effective—and in turn, help your team navigate change. Jennifer Bonine focuses on providing a toolkit for agile leadership. Explore your level of acceptance of change, how adaptive you are, and strategies to help others adapt to change. Jennifer provides exercises that enable you to discover your leadership style and understand your blind spots as a leader. What metrics should you be measuring against as you adopt agile development methodologies and move away from a traditional SDLC? During hands-on activities explore with other participants how to influence and promote ideas and change, as well as how to inspire others to follow and invest in your ideas. Learn how to partner across cross-functional teams and geographies. Leave with ideas of what will work for you and your organization, and with tools to ensure that you are an agile leader that your teams want to follow.
