Agile Lighthouse: Building the Right Culture Can Save Your Agile Transformation

Use Mission, Vision, and Values to build a healthy agile culture you can lean into when the tide rolls.

There is frequent discussion about how a healthy agile culture is imperative to the agile transformation, but how do we develop or grow that culture with intention? This talk discusses how the development of a Mission, Vision, and Values statement can become the foundation for a healthy agile culture, and a lifesaver when the going gets tough. Using real world examples from software and the classroom, I will discuss how Mission, Vision, and Values are the first step toward creating organizational alignment that is necessary to enable agility and the self-organization of teams. I will also talk about how we can lean into that culture (instead of our old habits!) when teams are struggling, deadlines are looming, or we feel like we are sinking in the face of criticism or doubt.

Helping the Helpers: The Care & Feeding of Your ScrumMasters

The servant leader ScrumMaster is a unique, often misunderstood, and sometimes lonely role. They are in a constant state of giving; relied upon as an energy source for their team. They ask powerful questions, give encouragement, and tackle tough problems on behalf of their team. This session is aimed at agile coaches and leaders who are in a position to help those helpers. What do they need to carry on serving?

Organizational Catalysts: The Ebb and Flow of a Coach

Is the transformation stalled? Play Choose Your Own Adventure to discover your options when your coaching effectiveness has been poisoned.

As agile coaches and ScrumMasters, our purpose is to help people, teams, and organizations transform the way they think about their work and how they function as an organization. Our role serves as a catalyst in these transformations, asking questions and inspiring clients to create their own new thinking.

When added to a new or already existing agile transformation, a coach’s mission is to increase the speed of a transformation and decrease the amount of overall energy required for the transformation. However, catalysts (whether chemicals or coaches) can occasionally be inhibited, deactivated, or destroyed by secondary reactions. It is important that coaches remain vigilant to recognize the risk of this, and prevent it.

Knowing when you, as a catalyst, have been inhibited is one of the many coaching skills necessary to ensure that your agile transformations continue to evolve.
