Managers are the problem. At least that is what the Agile literature often claims. Is there even room for management in Agile?
As agile methodologies developed further and expanded their remit, it very quickly became clear that not only IT is afflicted by the same kind of frustration that initially spawned its invention. In fact I am very certain that every organisation in the world could benefit from it.
In this talk I will present a bit of general theory behind the practice of management in today's society of information workers. I will follow up with a few proven hands-on practices that you can take away and immediately apply to your organisation. My aim is to help you make your organisation a bit more effective and much more human!
This talk targets everyone who itches for inspiring management; managers on every level, development managers, project managers, product owners, agile coaches, scrum masters, developers, testers, business analysts and general employees disillusioned with traditional management models.
