Engaging Leadership Throughout the Agile Transformation Journey

Engaging Leadership Throughout the Agile Transformation Journey

Wednesday, December 8, 2021, 10AM PST, 1PM EST

What You'll Learn...

Agile transformation requires an entire company to become laser-focused on delivering customer value and satisfaction, which means there are multiple places an agile transformation can stall. The 15th State of Agile Report specifies more than a dozen reasons for failed transformations, but two stand out: 41% of survey respondents identified absence of leadership participation as one of the most significant barriers to agile adoption, while 42% of respondents identified inadequate management support and sponsorship as a similar barrier. These numbers underscore just how critical C-suite participation is to the success of agile transformation.


Because agile often starts in IT and product development, and spreads organically, it’s common for agile implementation across an organization to be inconsistent, so the company isn’t seeing the results it needs. Or perhaps your C-suite has committed resources, but hasn’t formalized around a strategy, values, and plan. Even if you've got the budget for agile, that's just the tip of the iceberg. The reality is this: to be successful, agile transformation must be embraced, championed, and modeled by the leadership team in order to successfully cascade throughout the entire organization. So how do you make that happen?


Join our expert panel on Wednesday, December 8th at 10:00 AM PDT/1:00 PM EDT to hear from agile practitioners and leaders on how to get leadership buy-in for your agile initiatives. They'll discuss:

  • Partnering with leaders on the agile journey
  • Setting the right expectations and delivering on them while building a culture of transparency and learning
  • Real-world examples of agile leadership from Fox and other large organizations
  • How the right tooling, like Atlassian's Jira Align, can save you hours of time and give leaders the metrics they need


Tune in to our webinar on December 8th for all the details!
