There is a disturbing trend that is emerging over the past 12-18 months. More and more companies are abandoning Agile and Scrum in favor of more traditional project management approaches.

If you are a Scrum Master, Product Owner or an Agile principled leader, how do you react to this trend?    How do you manage it?    How do you survive?

“The Scrum Master is accountable for establishing Scrum by helping everyone understand Scrum theory and practice, both within the Scrum Team and the organization” (Scrum Guide). And the purpose of Scrum is ultimately to exercise Empiricism and Lean Thinking throughout the organization.

“The Product Owner is accountable for maximizing the value of the product resulting from the work of the Scrum Team” (Scrum Guide).

But as an Agile Leader how do you do it?     Who are the key people in your organization that you have to teach and even convince?       How do you approach them?    How do you Engage them?

In this presentation, Andrea and Alex will bring a taster of their new Engaging Leadership program. You will experience a concrete practice – inviting stakeholders – that helps everyone to contribute at their best.

What you will learn in this presentation is how to:

  • playfully create Do’s and Don’ts of engaging your stakeholders
  • create an invitation to practice this engaging style
  • get empirical evidence on your initiatives via frequent, small invitations
  • leave the meetup with increased confidence and clarity on how you can become a more engaging leader
