Most of the Agile literature describes the self-organizing team regularly delivering value with the support of a servant leader. Unfortunately, this picture is far rosier than what many Agile practitioners experience. Teams take months to reach the desirable stage of high performance, and the way there is rocky; some never make it. In this hands-on workshop, team members and leaders will discover what it takes to grow a solid Agile team. The material is taken directly from Gil Broza’s new book, The Human Side of Agile: How to Help Your Team Deliver.
* Discover the Agile team lifecycle and its main pitfalls
* Learn how to move a team along the lifecycle and why some teams struggle to thrive
* Identify leadership actions you can take to help your team grow right now
