Agile can transform software development teams – and other kinds of teas – in amazing ways. As Agile takes hold and proves its worth, people begin to see the need for a new kind of “leadership culture” at the senior and middle management levels. What is needed is not simply the application of Agile methods in management teams. We need leaders who have the capacity to think and act at higher levels of agility.
This presentation introduces three “levels” of leadership agility that emerged from extensive research on the leadership needed in today’s highly complex, rapidly changing business environment. Going beyond previous conceptions of agile leadership, he will introduce us to the rarely practiced “Catalyst” level of leadership agility and how it can be applied to the larger challenges posed by today’s Agile initiatives.
