How to Avoid a Toxic Transformation

Agile transformations are similar to road trips: without a map to get you to your destination, you will most likely end up lost. Avoid kicking off a toxic transformation by starting your journey out on the right foot.

In this workshop, learn the important steps an organization should take to provide a strong foundation for successfully implementing Agile. Attendees leave with a transformation framework they can customize for their organization to place them on the road to becoming more Agile.

The session takes attendees from the Org Level to the System Level to the Team Level. At the Org Level, take important first steps: create clear vision, develop clear business objectives, organize leaders, construct a transformation backlog, and create a roadmap. At the System Level, align around the transformation: identify value streams, align teams to the value streams, and develop mechanisms for cross-team coordination. At the Team Level, begin to transform the team: discuss goals, vision, and mission, determine success criteria, define roles and develop team agreements like Definition of Done and Definition of Ready.
