*This webinar will be worth 1 Leadership PDU until 9/12/2021!*

Many leaders want to transform their organization to become more agile, adaptive, and responsive to the market. However, most do not deeply understand how to lead their organization through such a massive change. They install prescriptive scaling frameworks and send employees to training, but discard the elements of true transformation that are difficult. When the inevitable failure ensues, they switch frameworks, fire people, and revert back to what worked for them in the past. What these leaders fail to recognize is that the mindset they used to build their organization conflicts with the mindset required to transform their organization. In short, they fail to shift from a hierarchical, command-and-control style to a holistic, systems-thinking approach. In this workshop, Steven Granese presents his Transformation Leadership Systems Model, which is based on his background in organizational psychology and experience in consulting companies of all sizes. This model is designed with systems thinking and teaches leaders why they must optimize their entire complex system, and not just the individual parts. Attendees will leave with a deep understanding that agile leaders must create a system which generates feedback at multiple levels. Attendees will also participate in a simulation to reinforce the model and deepen their understanding of leading real transformation.

Learning Objectives:
• When does it make sense to Scale Agile
• What are the leading scaling approaches
• An introduction to SAFe's Big Picture and implementation configurations
• How to implement SAFe - The Implementation Roadmap
• Typical Results of implementing SAFe
• Key risks/red flags to be aware of when implementing SAFe

Session Abstract:
The agile community has made great strides in improving the quality and speed of product delivery, evolving toward continuous delivery. What about product discovery? Can we align continuous product delivery with continuous product delivery? It is possible to overcome the immutable fact that product requirements are the source of so much uncertainty and waste? Can we balance satisfying customers with improving product viability through continuous product discovery? 

In my work with many product and engineering organizations, I have learned some key principles and practices that enlighten and energize product discovery. These include setting product context, clarifying outcomes and validation tests, amplifying collaboration, using Structured Conversations with Discovery Boards, and injecting visual models—with and beyond stories and story maps—to build shared understanding of the product. Indeed, agile discovery can accelerate delivery and help build better high-value products.

Implementing Agile So It Sticks - Using brain science and active engagement to embed change
Picture the last time you led a project that involved change. Did the plan you created and executed to perfection lead to changes that are still in place in the organization? If not, don't worry. Managing change is a skill that requires practice, but there are a few tips and tricks that can help ensure your changes stick…and many of them are already hidden in an agile approach to managing projects.

Join expert agile change management facilitator Barbee Davis to learn why you should consider every project a change project. In this 90 minute hands-on tutorial, Barbee shares the latest research on how our brains function and demonstrates how to use this knowledge to transform your work, introduce new ideas, embed them within your organization, motivate people to change—and maintain those changes long after the project has wrapped up. These lessons are key for competing in a fast-paced marketplace, and creating happy customer employees who understand and support the organization.

What you’ll learn—and how you can apply it
By the end of this live online course, you’ll understand:
● The latest research on how brains function and the specific ways people are engaged, learn, and motivated to adopt new behaviors.
● Why this research is at odds with the ways we currently introduce and implement change in our organizations.
And you’ll be able to:
● Apply the latest research on brain function to construct ways to ensure people internalize and act on new ideas in order to maximize success in change projects,
● Understand why agile is so successful and how to use it and its hidden hooks,
● Move from PowerPoint to people-pointed presentations,
● Assist your organization in achieving its strategic objectives through more-skilled change practices,
● Be creative in building internal meeting processes, resulting in happy employees who understand and support the organizational goals.

This course is for you because…

● You're an Agile team member, Agile Lead, or Scrum Master who wants to change the behavior of others.
● You're a Project Manager with a traditional team who wants to change the behavior of your team, your managers, or your customers.
● You are working to create a hybrid Agile/Waterfall team.
● You lead a team involved with a change-centric project.
● You're a business analyst, manager, product owner, or customer working with project teams, and you need to change the behavior of your employees or customers.

Prerequisites:

● Experience implementing change in your organization (successfully or not).
● A need to lead change projects in the future – and remember, all projects are change projects.

Speaker Bio:
Barbee Davis is an author and international speaker in the fields of Agile and Project Management. Barbee's calling is to use her own knowledge and experience to help others successfully transition from the clean-cut theory learned in training, to the often shocking reality of putting those methods into messy, frustrating practice in real life. Her latest book is Adding Agile to Waterfall Projects: Shifting Processes for Competitive Advantage. She also formulates tough, real-life type questions you may encounter in the workplace and allows you to check your own knowledge via four possible answers. Once you have chosen, Barbee then shares her idea of the best approach and further advice on agile and project management-related topics in her twice-a-month feature, Topic Teasers, for Projectmanagement.com, read by almost 400,000 people worldwide. Barbee is a certified Project Manager, Agile project manager, and Business Analyst through the Project Management Institute; she holds the PMP®, PMI-ACP®, and PMI-PBA® certifications.

Practical and Passionate Product Ownership
Agile product ownership is arguably the most important work leading to successful product outcomes. Product Owners need to be inventive yet intensely focused; collaborative but decisive; far-sighted but detail oriented.

Session Overview
Understand what it means to be agile. Some teams think they can be agile by using a defined process or set of practices as defined by one of the agile approaches. This is just “doing Agile.” Other teams are agile in name only – the team says it’s “doing Agile” but ends up using the same old practices and achieving the same results.
Teams adopt agile for a variety of reasons, but it’s not the process or set of practices they select that produces the results they seek. Teams are most successful when they adopt a particular mindset in order to “be agile”. Join us as we describe what it means to be agile through 7 key ideas based on how people and organizations work best. We’ll discuss some specific techniques you can use to adopt the mindset on your project, how the business analyst role changes along with the mindset, and how to help your team move from “doing Agile” to actually “being agile”.

Session Roadmap
• Understand the key ideas that form the agile mindset
• How to help your team adopt the agile mindset
• Understand how adopting the agile mindset impacts business analysts

Misconceptions abound about the way requirements and business analysis fits—or doesn’t—into agile projects. Is “agile requirements” an oxymoron—that is, contradictory terms joined together? How is it possible for requirements to be agile? Do agile projects need requirements? Does business analysis even happen on agile projects? In practice, requirements are the basis of discovery and delivery on agile projects. Join us, as requirements expert and agile coach Ellen Gottesdiener exposes the realities and debunk the myths that surround the use of agile requirements and business analysis.

Today’s software teams aspire to continuously deliver business value to customers. For this to work, we have to build quality into the product from the start. The “old school” approach of testing after coding is “finished” doesn’t help with successful product delivery. We need new testing strategies: guiding development with business-facing examples and tests, helping stakeholders identify and define valuable features, preventing defects rather than finding them later.

In an agile organization testing is not a job or a phase or a department. Testing and coding are integral parts of software development, done together. Every member of the software delivery team, including the business stakeholders, must take responsibility for planning and executing necessary testing activities. Join Lisa to learn strategies to build quality into software products and optimize testing practices.

About the Speaker:

Lisa Crispin is the co-author, with Janet Gregory, of More Agile Testing: Learning Journeys for the Whole Team (2014), Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams (2009), co-author with Tip House of Extreme Testing (2002). Lisa was voted by her peers as the Most Influential Agile Testing Professional Person in 2012. Lisa enjoys working as a tester and sharing her experiences in the agile and testing communities.
