Limited Capacity seats available

From my experience of leading Agile Transformations in three Fortune 100 companies (over 2000 people per transformation), the sustainability of agile at an enterprise level is deeply linked to how the organization “transforms” to agile. We know that transforming an organization to become more agile requires more than just process change. Rather, it requires a complete culture shift. Sustainable, effective agile transformations affect all the elements of culture such as, leadership style, leadership values, work structures, reward systems, processes, and of course the work habits of people. How to affect that culture shift is the key question we will discuss in the session. We will present two different common transformation approaches (organizational-led and process-led) and then describe a hybrid version called culture-led transformation that is designed to change critical organizational and personal keystone habits to improve and sustain organizational agility. Throughout the presentation there will be stories from real companies who have used this approach.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Explain what an organizational Ecosystem looks like and why it is needed to enable sustainable organizational agility
  • Describe the two most common Agile transformation models (Project/Pilot/Team-Led and Process-Led) and why both of them may not be sustainable in large organizations
  • Understand the important and impact of focusing on the Human Elements of an organization during a transformation and the impact that has on the sustainability of Agile in the organization
  • Describe a new (and tried) model of enterprise agile adoption that focuses on transforming culture so that agile can be sustainable in the organization
