Limited Capacity seats available

Over the past 8 years, I have been working to transform my company of ~100K people to an Agile development culture. At many times this has been a daunting and complex task. One key lesson that I have learned is that a “go it alone” strategy puts your adoption and transformation at greater risk of moving too slow or even failing completely. In this talk we will explore when is the right time to use consultants and freelance coaches to accelerate your work. We will also explore the key transformation strategies to get the highest value from this investment, ways to grow your own internal capability, how to transfer know-how across your organization, and key considerations and learnings to help you successfully apply external experience.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Adoption scenarios and reasons to use/not use coaches and consultants

  • Know-how management and distribution

  • Identifying the Snake Oil Salesperson
