"Working in an Agile Culture", Speaker: David Mantica; North (Cabarrus & Huntersville) Virtual Meeting
Agile is becoming the dominant practice for Software development management and is being used to in all facets of an organization to increase productivity and time to value.
To remain valuable and keep your skills development at the pace of organizational change, this is a must have learning session.
There are very specific skills a professional requires to be successful working in the Agile way. The problem is too many times, we think agile is a set of practices and nothing else. Know the practices and you know Agile. But knowing something doesn’t mean you can get things done. To be successful in Agile you must learn and develop very practical professional skills that form the foundation of Agile Values and Principals. Learn this and the practices come alive and have meaning.
- Understanding Agile as a way of working
- Value analysis
- Working iteratively
- What really is self-organization
- Team and self-leadership mindset
- Growth mindset and psychological safety
