Abstract:
After almost 10 years as an agile coach and enterprise consultant, going back into industry as the Head of Development Management at Riot Games was a tremendous learning experience, especially as I realized that not everything I aspired to introduce as an Agile consultant was possible, or even desirable, now that I was in charge. Humbling, indeed, but this has given me many fantastic opportunities to innovate, and evolve my understanding of agility.
In this Stalwarts session, I would love to discuss with the audience topics like: What does it mean to truly be customer-centric versus product-centric? How do you build a culture of learning using the agile mindset as an essential building block? What does it mean to be a servant leader without losing the “leader” aspect? What does it mean to have a culture of accountability in an agile environment?
Also as President of the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile), other topics within my purview include agile training and education, organizational or individual learning paths, and how to advance the state of agile learning globally. As an advocate of the “agility of Agile,” I refuse to subscribe to a specific agile methodology, preferring instead to take the mindset, values, and principles of agile, and innovate practices helpful to a specific context. I believe in being Agile verses doing Agile.

Learning Outcomes:
