Topic:

The old models are broken. We see it everywhere - in three decades of declining employee engagement, in organizations that are struggling to adapt, and in a broader sense that businesses and governments alike could be doing better. That’s why cutting-edge organizations throughout the world are tossing off the outdated, mechanistic 21st century approach and embracing something new. Built upon five decades of social science, this new approach uses autonomy, mastery, and purpose as the pathway to high performance. As you will discover, challenging the existing orthodoxies isn’t just exhilarating. Today it’s the only way to survive. Dan Pink’s book DRIVE is nearly ubiquitous in the agile community, yet until recently there were no concrete HOW-TO’s available for teams and organizations. That has changed with the http://www.ipeguam.com/order-viagra-in-canada introduction of the DRIVE Workshop, a 1 day immersive experience for teams and executives. In these short 75 minutes, I’ll present an overview of online amoxil the basic principles of motivation, backed by science, and illustrated through real life examples; the 3 keys to http://nvrun.com/cialis-with-overnight-shipping motivation and engagement; and we’ll work through some real-life HOW-TO scenarios for making this happen in the real world. Everybody will leave with a play-book of ideas to take back to their organizations.

Topic: Importance of Agile Readiness - Success Factors for a Transformation to www.artisticzoom.pl Agile

 

The Agile movement may have reached a tipping point. Many are finding that deploying Agile has not gained them the cheap tramadol with free overnight shpping business benefits they are looking for. Looking deeper into what has occurred in many of the "Agile deployments", there seems to be a focus on "doing Agile" and very little on "being Agile". "Doing Agile" focuses on skills and process change. What is needed to gain the business benefits from Agile is a strong focus on the cultural and behavioral changes for "Being Agile" which focuses on a willingness to continuously adapt toward customer value.

In this interactive session, we will walk-through the Ready, Implement, Coach, and Hone (RICH) Deployment Framework that is discussed in the new Agile book entitled, "Being Agile". The primary focus will be on the Agile Readiness activities that can help you lay the ground work for achieving an Agile transformation and the business benefits it can bring.
