Bridging the Chasm Between Enterprise Execution Techniques and Agile Thinking

There is a yawning chasm between the way executives at large enterprises are used to operating and the principles that the Agile development teams are trying to install.

To bridge this chasm, you need to answer a few questions. What are the underlying mechanisms of human behavior that enterprise execution techniques assume are critical to their effectiveness and how have these mechanisms been disrupted by your Agile transformation? Why have traditional uses of metrics suddenly stopped being effective and how can you alter your approach to using metrics, restoring their effectiveness in your newly Agile environment? Most critically, how can you leverage the language and mindsets of your executives to reinforce your Agile initiatives rather than resist them?

This talk gives you the answers to these questions and a framework of execution that will be familiar to your executives but reinterpreted in the context of your Agile transformation.
