In fast changing world business expects projects producing faster results and at the same time, operational requirements keep changing frequently. This environment has created demand for flexible project management approaches. As a result, we see a rise in the adoption of Agile-based methods.
Many recognize Agile as a means of doing software development where Agile is more a mindset, a mindset which is open for growth, exploration and changes. The role of project leader also has to adapt to new way of doing things since agile is not just a process but way of achieving business results faster.
In this talk, I am addressing how the role of leader (many time called Project Manager) changes while working with agile. The management style which was working in traditional life cycle may not work in current agile based project life cycles. If we mix the predictive life cycle planning and monitoring approach to adaptive life cycle execution, we usually end up creating a deadly cocktail.
Delegates will take away the following:
• Awareness of anti-Pattern where only doing is agile, planning and monitoring are still traditional
• Awareness of consequences of agile – traditional cocktail
• Practical insights into agile leadership
• Practical ideas for the development of Agile leadership style
