WHY AGILE TRANSFORMATIONS GET STUCK
Please join DFW Scrum at Sabre HDQ as David Hawks, CEO of Agile Velocity discusses WHY AGILE TRANSFORMATIONS GET STUCK. Description: In this world of exponentially increasing market disruption, it is more imperative than ever for organizations to not only achieve operational agility (efficiency, speed, etc.), but also organizational agility (speed to respond to market change). Many companies are embarking on an Agile Transformation, but getting “lost in the desert” and not realizing the full agile benefits promised and needed. Traditional Leadership Paradigms, Org. Structures, and Culture all get in the way, as too many companies focus on team level change and framework implementation (Scrum and SAFe). In this session, we will explore how leaders can guide their organizations past these barriers and accelerate the momentum towards true organizational agility. Bio: As CEO of Agile Velocity, David Hawks guides leaders through their agile transformation with a focus on achieving business results. David is a Certified Enterprise Coach and Certified Scrum Trainer who is passionate about helping organizations achieve true agility, not just implementing Agile practices. He helps create transformation strategies and manages organizational change through leadership coaching.

    What we're about

    Welcome to DFW Scrum!

    Scrum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrum_(development)) is a process framework that focuses on delivering the highest business value to the customer as early as possible through short iterative development cycles that allow rapid and repeated inspection of the project. Scrum can of course be used on just about any project (if it involves people and it has to get done, you can use Scrum).

    Our goal is to help you do better today than you were doing yesterday. The best way to do that is through the collective wisdom and experience of the crowd (sprinkled with some industry experts).

    Scrum is very simple to understand, but very hard to implement as it takes your problems and throws them in your face each and every day. We consider ourselves an organic group that is designed to tackle the challenges and issues you face regardless of your role in Scrum.

    We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month reserving the quarters for industry thought leaders / mentors who can provide direction and insight to questions we might have raised in past meetings. We have hosted some of the industry leading experts such as Ken Schwaber, Martin Fowler, Kent Beck, Ward Cunningham, Jez Humble, Lisa Crispin, Jim Highsmith, Dave Thomas, Ron Jeffries & Chet Hendrickson, Alistair Cockburn, Jeff Patton, Mary Poppendieck, Esther Derby and Mike Cohn since our inception January 13, 2009.
