Catapult Your Leadership Capabilities Using Agile Principles with Steven Martin - CANCELLED


Topics: Leadership Development | Agile | Leadership | Leading Project Teams

With self-organization and self-management as core concepts for agile-run projects, it’s no wonder there is confusion with the role of a project manager, portfolio manager, or PMO. Agile frameworks typically provide no guidance to people who usually have had leadership responsibilities, even though leaders have a critical role for project success. Understanding how to operate effectively as a leader in agile not only helps teams better deliver, but also enables the organization to adopt and apply agile concepts more smoothly. This drives longer lasting benefits and greater project successes.

Through hands-on exercises, group learning sessions, and a case study from an actual large-scale software project, attendees will understand how they and their teams could be working better by applying agile principles. Learn how to adjust your actions as a leader to help create the right conditions for higher impact projects with less churn and stress. Furthermore, concepts learned will also enable agility to take greater hold both within your teams and across the organization.
