DCSUG - The Art and Practice of the Agile Leader by Michael Hamman

Organizations around the globe are struggling to adapt to an increasingly turbulent economic, technological and business environment. Many companies are responding to the turbulence of today’s world by adopting agile development in their product and service delivery. But, as many organizational leaders are finding, getting the implementation of Agile delivery methods and business practices right presents significant organizational challenges. Which inevitably begs the question for the organizational leader who truly grasps the nature of the challenge: how can I, as a leader, as a manager, build long-term, institutional conditions that support sustainable delivery and business agility—in people, in systems and structures, in me? This talk presents some perspectives on the role and the path of the Transformational Agile Leader. First, we inquire into what we mean by “transformation” (it probably doesn’t mean what you think it means). Then, we delve into the nature of the mindset shift necessary of the Transformational Agile Leader. When effective in this leadership role, the Agile Leader operates across three horizons of leadership: Personal-Leadership, Relationship-Leadership and Organization-Leadership. A walk-through of each of these horizons will take us into a final discussion about what takes to fully occupy this role of the Agile Leader.
