Leadership Styles for a Successful Scrum Adoption with Chris Sims
In this session you will learn about six different leadership styles and explore how and when they should be employed to guide your organization through a successful scrum adoption. This session builds on the research of Daniel Goleman and Virginia Satir to create a model that you will use during the session to map the styles of leadership needed at various points during your company’s adoption of scrum.
This session introduces you to the six leadership styles that Daniel Goleman described in his Harvard Business Review Study: "Leadership That Gets Results” as well as the Satir Change Model, created by Virginia Satir. Participants will work in small groups to synthesize these two models creating a map for applying differing leadership styles at various point along the change curve of a scrum adoption. There is no one correct answer. Each group will create a map based on their experience and their organizations. During the last part of the session, each team will share and explain their map.
