Detailed Description

As Agile change agents, we guide people, teams and organizations in their agile journey. As a group of experienced coaches, we found out that every organization has a different starting point and context. After we guided various transitions over a few years, we began to see trends and similarities between organizations. When we started structuring our findings, we sketched a model that looked very similar to the work of professor in ‘Implementation and Change Management’: Thijs Homan.

With a group of five experienced agile consultants, we worked out this model and developed a framework for organizations who want to start and/or pursue their agile transitions. This framework acts as a reference guide for us and our clients when implementing an Agile transition. It focuses on guiding organizations from a plan-driven approach to a results-driven way of working.
We used the approach in the field, shared our findings and captured it by writing a book. This book helps us in making an entry in the boardroom. We like to present our findings, our framework and our real-life examples with two of our coaches in an interactive session.

We are also interested in other models & approaches of participants. If participants find this valuable, we will conclude the session with sharing this information between participants
