Many of the new to Agile don’t realize how initially unfamiliar, sometimes even uncomfortable Agile methods are to practise. And so, during the Agile adoption journey they hold on to familiar attitudes that have made sense before. Some of these attitudes are fine in an Agile context, but others – often going unstated – lead to mediocre performance or disaster.
Gil Broza, known for his people-centric, pragmatic approach to Agile transformations, shares in this talk the top 10 attitudes to shake loose – and what to replace them with. These attitudes include managerial ones, such as “assign work to task experts” and team ones, such as “The work is done when everyone has completed their own piece.” Other examples are unhelpful resignation to reality (“Things take long, and that’s just the way it is”) and narrow perspectives (“If it runs, it’s ready”).
In this session you’ll discover:
- Which hold-over attitudes you have (some of which you probably never noticed or questioned)
- Their impact on performance
- Powerful techniques and mindset you can embrace instead (they might not seem easy, but they are within your reach)
