Many software development managers find the transition to Agile very difficult. The Manifesto for Agile Software Development hardly speaks to the role leaders have to play in a team's success. Our industry has plenty of material on how to practice Scrum, but less so on how to be a leader in an Agile organization. This interactive presentation will provide concrete recommendations for the actions leaders need to take as their role evolves from that of being a manager to being a leader. It also contains material and a few exercises (games/survey) to illustrate how leaders can support their Agile teams. If you are one of these leaders, or someone who is coaching them, this session is for you.
