Much has changed since the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001. Pioneers and practitioners of lean and agile methods have examined weaknesses and friction points, experimented with simpler approaches, and discovered safer, simpler and more capital-efficient processes.
We call such processes modern agile. They are driven by four principles: Make People Awesome, Make Safety A Prerequisite, Experiment & Learn Rapidly and Deliver Value Continuously. Modern agile amplifies the values and practices of organizations (like Amazon, AirBnB, Google & Etsy) that have discovered better ways of getting awesome results.
Modern agile is here to help you move beyond outdated agility. Are you managing a backlog without first validating user needs, cramming low-quality work in at the end of each sprint, spending time on low-value planning activities, struggling with growing technical debt, arguing about “definition of done” or frustrated that “management never gives us time to do it right”?
In this 3-day workshop, you’ll learn about the essential practice of psychological safety, what it means to have a just culture, how obsessing on making people awesome is far better than worrying about competitors, how to build a culture of experimentation and learning and the art of delivering value continuously. You’ll also get ideas for how to modernize your current processes.
