Are you planning to adopt agile at your company? Is your current adoption running into problems? Considering your company's culture when introducing Agile into your organization allows you to tailor your approach. Going even further, it's important to understand the people in your organization, how they react to change and what role they take in creating and changing your organization's culture. This experiential and discussion based session gives participants the opportunity to learn how to recognize their organization's culture, and perhaps more importantly, recognize how to manage objections based on personality types of the people who may appear to be resisting the change.
Don Gray’s goal to answer “What is the earliest indicator for a project’s status?” has led him to focus on such diverse topics as communication, personality types, team styles, systems thinking and human systems dynamics. Since 1984 his client base has ranged from small startups to Fortune 50 in size. Don’s varied interests and client experience provides a platform for helping clients introduce and work through change as they transition to agile development practices. Working primarily as an Agile Coach he also conducts workshops on accelerating agile practices, personality type, and retrospectives. Don occasionally writes articles that can be found in STQE, Better Software and on StickyMinds. His blog can be found at www.donaldegray.com Don helped create and co-Hosts the AYE Conference. He will present a related session with Jason Little ([masked]) at Agile2012.
