Agile was a grassroots engineering movement that caught most software leaders unprepared. The Agile community was confident that management would recognize the benefits of Agile and adopt its servant-leadership style. Unfortunately, management in larger organizations maintained the directing and controlling management style that had been reinforced throughout their careers, violating the Agile tenet of trusted, self-motivated Agile teams.

Agile has been impeded by retention of Waterfall release planning practices and schedule pressure. Management was never taught how to establish the positive and supportive environment necessary to motivate self-directed teams, resulting in disappointing Agile transitions. Organizations can improve predictability by building Agile teams motivated to achieve results.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Motivation organizational behavior principles for engineering leaders
  • An alternative to pressure to achieve superior results
  • How to establish the supportive environment critical for motivation of self-directed teams
  • How to do Agile the way it was conceived!

Engineering leaders are provided with methods and practices supported by established organizational behavior principles they can apply. It’s presented by an experienced engineering leader for product development leaders.
