Leadership & Culture Transformation
“When you succeed as a leader… the team says WE did it!”
Leadership and Cultural Transformation reflects the need to integrate Agile principles at the leadership level to allow for the full realization of a highly collaborative and high performing culture. Leadership shifts from a top-down, directive style to creating an environment to support empowered teams and allowing the people closest to the work to make decisions in alignment with the leadership direction. Leaders focus their efforts on vision, strategy, growing people and removing organizational impediments.
This pillar includes Servant Leadership, Leading Agile Teams, Tactical to Strategic Leadership and Adaptive Leadership.

Culture of Agility
In an Agile organization, leaders focus on strategy over tactical concerns. Many leaders and managers are focused on day to day task management and fire fighting. Future Agile leaders are focused on growing people, removing obstacles, leading strategic initiatives and guiding communities of practices. Learn More
