Behind the Agile Curtain: Why Leaders Choose Agility

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How do you convince your boss and peers that Agile is the answer to your organization's issues?

As a former "unconvinced" turned "convinced" leader, the question of "How do I win over my boss?" really hits home. How was I convinced? How was I changed? When did I start to see the results I needed?

In order to convince someone else of the value you see, it's ideal to start by understanding their needs, constraints, and challenges. Once you see things through their eyes, then you begin to understand the precise ways Agile can facilitate the outcomes they're looking for. What better way to understand leaders than to ask leaders questions directly?

Join Erik Cottrell along with panelists, Nicole Tanzillo (CO-Founder & COO, Ceresa), Ron Dovich (Assistant VP of Technology, AT&T), and Amy Green-Hinojosa (VP, Project Management Office, Texas Mutual Insurance) to get an inside look into what it takes to convince leaders of Agile, the challenges and rewards of leading change, and the benefits they realized once they began to embrace agility.
