WEBINAR: Agile Managers (2 Parts)
Date: Thursday, October 8 starting at 2 p.m.
Duration: 1 hour
This is another in our monthly webinar series. The overall topic is Building Agile Managers. For this session, I propose two sub-topics to give us some focus within this huge topic.
1. How do we want the manager interacting with the team?
And I mean this from all perspectives. Let me suggest three: what the manager thinks is best, what the agile coach likes, and what the Team wants. As examples.
So, we are limiting it this time to one manager and one team, and the two are interacting. What do you want those interactions to be?
I have ideas and I am sure you do. Let’s try to articulate them, discuss them, share them and debate them some. And of course, we can allow differences of opinion. We will discuss this for 3o minutes.
2. How do we build better (Agile) managers?
For the following 30 minutes, I propose a broader discussion. How do we build Agile managers? I certainly hope some Agile managers are part of our group because the “education” of a good manager must of course be done in a realistic way that fits (probably) with the current situation. We need to be realistic. (Note: “Education” does not imply that all the learning must happen via a course. In this context, education means anything we might do to help the manager become a better Agile manager.)
I also want to propose a new idea for managers and get your feedback all in 30 minutes. So, a total of 60 minutes for the session overall.
Throughout the webinar, I will talk through a bit of a slide deck (on each sub-topic) and offer some ideas. But these slides are mainly food for thought. I hope we have a lively discussion. It is a hard and important topic, and deserves a lively discussion. I do not believe anyone has a lock on the right solution here. And making this better will help a lot.
Also: I expect to have more sessions on this basic topic. Please share your ideas about sub-topics.
