Scott to run agile adoption mini-workshop at Agile Tour Toronto 2012
Scott will be facilitating a one-hour agile adoption workshop entitled “We Can’t Do That! Yes You Can!” at Agile Tour Toronto 2012 on November 26. The goal of the workshop is to work together to turn the “We can’t do that”s into “Yes we can”s. One of the submission reviewers observed that this is basically a minature consulting session.
Adopting agile strategies within a few teams is fairly straightforward, but when organizations adopt agile across the enterprise they often run into numerous roadblocks. Some of these roadblocks are real but most are perceived. During this interactive session participants will first identify the roadblocks that they believe they face within their organizations. As a group we will cluster similar issues together, identifying common categories of adoption challenges. As a group we will swarm around the roadblocks to suggest potential solutions to the roadblocks that we face. I finish the workshop with a summary of the result and his thoughts about how you can apply these lessons learned in your organizations.
Over the years I’ve spoked at several Agile Tour events, including the Toronto one, and I’ve always found them to be great value for attendees. If you’re in the Toronto area I hope you can attend.
