How to create an environment for your teams to truly thrive by Brian Wills
As a leader, have you wondered how to create an environment for your Agile teams to truly thrive? If you answered yes, you’ll want to come to this workshop to learn how leaders can "FORM" an Agile Ecosystem including: Fun work environment, Obstacle removal, Rewarding teams, and Mentoring and coaching teams. Brian and other members of the Agile Mentoring Program (AMP) “Movement” are providing this model for free because they're tired of most Agile transformations failing due to 11 "giants" who are out to mess with your Agility! It is this Movement's mission to "Uncover better ways of producing valuable, working Agile Transformations by doing it and helping others do it through the Agile Mentoring Program (AMP), a self-organizing cell-division framework." Oh, and did we mention that it's all free?!? :) AMP has been used successfully at Western Digital, Symantec, HP, Disney, EXL, Nova/ProMatch, and various consulting companies so come join the fun and learn how to make your Agile Transformation rock, too!
