You are responsible for an Agile transformation, or will be in the (near) future. Your company is in the journey to become a fast responsive enterprise and you are one of the key persons leading that change. Introducing Agility and making an enterprise responsive, is not an overnight change and you have many questions and are looking for practical cases and examples. Luckily you are not the first to go through this process. Much experience is becoming available on how to do such transformations. In this 2½ day masterclass we address the most important questions that arise before or during such a transformation. Furthermore, we will give plenty of real life cases and examples to work as your templates.
This masterclass on Leading Agile Transformations is intended for executives and (program) managers that are leading agile transformations. The masterclass does not cover the (introductory) details of Agile and Scrum, but answers questions related to the change, the journey towards Agile, and all operational and execution aspects to make such a transformation successful.
This masterclass is given by Henk Jan Huizer and Rini van Solingen, and will also involve guest speakers (from industry). Henk Jan and Rini coached, consulted and lead more than 50 Agile transformations in for example: ING, T-Mobile, Tele2, ANWB, CSC, Delta Lloyd, ADP, and many more. Both trainers are on the leadership team of Prowareness; a company that employs over 30 full-time Agile implementation consultants and has more than 25 Agile software engineering teams. Both trainers have made all possible mistakes, fell down, crawled up, got smacked, celebrated victories, learned practices that work and that don’t, understood what works in certain settings and what doesn’t. Their experiences are shared throughout this whole masterclass.
