Two of the industry's Coaching thought leaders will be presenting at a Special Agile Event. The Silicon Valley Agile Leadership Network is proud to announce Lyssa Adkins and Michael Spayd who will speak on growing a more Agile Enterprise.
The Windows on Transformation: Four Pathways to Grow a more Agile Enterprise
It is easy to envision a more Agile enterprise, yet we have found as a community it is quite difficult to accomplish. The transformation process goes on in many dimensions and unless we have a framework that helps us see from each of those perspectives, our efforts are much more likely to fall short.
Based on Michael Spayd's upcoming book, Coaching the Agile Enterprise, this session will (literally) walk you through each of the four fundamental perspectives and the power and limitation of each. We will explore together approaches that are suitable to each perspective and how to activate them in your team, division or organization.
Who is this event for? Anyone currently in an enterprise that is going through an Agile Transformation. It's for Scrum Masters, Coaches, Program Managers, Executives, Team Members, Executives...
This event is FREE! Please RSVP... all we ask is that you bring an open mind and a great attitude.

About the Speakers:
Lyssa Adkins - Since 2004, I have taught Scrum and Agile Coaching to well over a thousand students, coached many agile teams, and served as master coach to scores of apprentice coaches. In both one-on-one settings and small groups, I enjoy a front-row seat as remarkable agile coaches emerge and go on to entice the very best from the teams and organizations they coach. Prior to agile, I had more than fifteen years of expertise leading project teams and groups of project managers (I was even a PMO Director — twice!), yet nothing prepared me for the power of agile done simply and well.
I believe that agile is more than an alternate project management methodology and I am passionate about deepening the roles in agile – specifically agile coach and agile manager – to help agile move into its fullest expression.
I hold an alphabet soup of certifications: Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), Project Management Professional (PMP), Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB) and Organization and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSCC). I am also a trained Co-Active Coach and Leader.
In 2010, I authored Coaching Agile Teams: A Companion for ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers in Transition.
Michael K. Spayd
In a word, my professional work is about transformation. I seem to be wired to help people–and systems–change. I am drawn to cutting edge ‘technologies’ for coaching and developing organizations, leaders and teams. I have worked as an organizational change coach and consultant for more than 20 years, working with Fortune 500, small businesses and non-profits. For 11 years I have specialized in large-scale Agile transformation efforts, working with numerous organizations, leaders, and over 75 teams in that time.
I was trained as a Team and Organizational Coach and hold a Masters degree in psychology, and I am trained in Co-Active leadership, executive coaching, and organizational behavior. I am a Certified Organization and Relationship Systems Coach (ORSCC), a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF), and a Certified Scrum Master (CSM). I am currently writing a book in the Mike Cohn series called Coaching in the Agile Enterprise.
