Agile New Zealand 2017- A Leadership Survival Guide to Transformation
Presenter: Aldo Rall CDAP
Leadership Survival Guide to Transformation
Agile has become a source of disruption to organizations and leadership. Prevailing trends shows that organizations are de-layering and some are even decimating their hierarchies. This disruption driven by Agile and, more recently, DevOps and Agile Scaling, challenges tradition; there is a call for wider skill sets and controlled, sustainable transformations, pushing leadership and organizations into wider and often conflicting and ambiguous contexts.
As a stop gap, some organizations attempt survival by shoehorning 'Agile' terms into traditional thinking and practices, only delaying the inevitable disaster. Leaders and organizations needs new thinking to re-invent, drive and sustain transformation. These leaders consistently develop unique solutions and skills by moving traditional leadership out of the Scientific Management era into the 21st century and embed it throughout their organizations and eco-systems.
This talk explored how leadership and organizations perform this feat by introducing Agility thinking tools to build sustainable transformations in leadership and organizations.
