TOPIC: AGILE ADOPTION AT MANAGEMENT LEVEL
Have you ever experienced lack of management support in Agile transformation? Do you see any cultural resistance that caused by management or executive level?
Paul Ellarby will share deep insights and practical tips that can help Agile transformation in your organization.
For the ones who asks for more information about Paul, here are the details.
Paul Ellarby is currently working Chief Agile Pragmatist at Tortillis Group. He is also an ex-Thoughtworker who worked as Senior Principal Consultant. He is the writer of "The Agile Executive Primer" book. He is a well-known speaker and an expert on several important topics. A few of them can be listed as follows.
• View from the executive suite - what executives need to know
• Agile Adoption for Executives
• Leadership in the Agile Enterprise
• The Agile Business Analyst
• The Agile Project Manager
• Multi-level program and project planing
• How do we focus on value?
• Role of the Business Analyst
While Paul is an expert in agile and lean development methods and their effects on organizational structures, his true focus is delivering high-value software to solve pressing business issues, or to take advantage of the current market. This has enabled him to lead organizations in adopting new approaches to software development, without losing sight of the real reason and need for such an adoption – that the methods currently being used are no longer working, and a more effective set of principles and practices are vital to the long-term viability of the business.
He leads engagements in forming and training software development teams, working with executives to make them understand their move to a more adaptive leadership model, and enabling geographically-distributed organizations to strengthen their collaboration and delivery capabilities.
