Agile Transformations Beyond Teams (Bill DeVoe)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Agile transformations are usually focused on our IT organizations. As change agents, we've become adept at changing our software teams but we often experience resistance when talking with groups outside of IT - in particular HR and Finance. If your people systems use carrots and sticks and your company funds projects, not teams, your transformation won't see it's maximum benefit and may flounder. In this talk, I'll discuss how I've engaged HR and Finance teams to bring them along the agile path. We'll cover common challenges and missteps and how to address them. And I'll provide you with talking points and practical actions you can take immediately to start making changes to your whole company and effect transformations beyond your teams.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will understand the roots of resistance to agile from HR and Finance teams. They'll leave with talking points to bring to their departments and action plans on what they can do to start working with those departments to transform them to support an agile framework.
