Follow the Money: How to Talk to Executives About Agile (Steven Granese)

When agile initiatives fail, too many agilists are quick to blame leaders by saying “they just don’t get it.” Unfortunately, not enough IT workers appreciate that executives speak a fundamentally different language and typically care about very different outcomes. In this session, I will share what I have learned from interacting with executives, including what has worked and what has failed. Additionally, I will explain my belief that agilists need to establish trust by empathizing with the concerns of executives and by learning to speak the language of business (aka money).

This session will be delivered by Steven Granese, the Vice President of Transformational Consulting at AgileThought. He leads a practice of Agile, DevOps, and Product consultants who focus on transforming the way that their clients deliver work.
