We will investigate the challenging human impacts of a cultural change when transitioning to agile. Taking a commonly experienced scenario, based on a real life situation, we will explore how emotions, fears, collaboration and trust, are affected within a new self-organizing Agile team and how the interactions with management impact upon this.
Working through the experience in small groups we will acknowledge the emotions that come up and offer practical strategies for managing those situations more effectively.
The tools and approach used are also transferrable to other people, leadership and team situations.
