When adopting new frameworks and practices that challenge old habits or beliefs, individuals often get stuck. And when individuals are stuck, it can lead to entire teams or organizations getting stuck. How do you move beyond what’s worked in the past? Can you reinvigorate people to combat complacency and apathy? What does it mean to change the mindset of an entire organization?
In this session, we’ll talk about what we’ve done as Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches to change hearts and minds to embrace change and continuous improvement. Find out how we’ve helped people get un-stuck and fostered an agile organizational mindset at the individual, team, and organization levels through training, mentoring, and coaching.
