In advance of delivering his keynote at the Global Scrum Gathering in Paris, Daniel Mezick will host a presentation & group discussion on Open Agile Adoption at Agile Culture New York!
Open Agile Adoption is a repeatable technique for getting rapid and lasting buy-in from stakeholders on your agile team. It is based on the hypothesis that human engagement is what actually powers genuine and lasting Agile adoptions.

What is Open Agile Adoption?
Open Agile Adoption is a repeatable technique for getting a rapid and lasting Agile adoption. It works with what you are currently doing, and can be added at any time. It incorporates the power of invitation, Open Space, passage rites, game mechanics, storytelling and more, so your Agile adoption can take root.
The hypothesis of Open Agile Adoption (OAA) assumes the following:
• Engagement is the fuel of a rapid and lasting Agile adoption.
• The use of Open Space Technology is effective in generating high levels of engagement.
• Creative and independent thinkers do their best work when actively engaged, and will actively disengage when explicit mandates reduce feelings of freedom and autonomy.
