Agile transformation is primarily a change in culture and mindset, but as such cannot be done without changes in the company’s management system, team settings, processes and technologies and IT architecture. The high complexity of interconnected changes is a great challenge on its own, yet if it is combined with a long period of needed time and the need to constantly respond to changing conditions, because customers and competitors do not wait for us to transform. How to keep direction and energy despite the difficulty or agile transformation?
Lenka Pincot will share her practical experience on how to manage large-scale organizational changes using proven methods such as Objectives and Key Results (OKR), but she will also present lesser-known approaches, such as the Value-Based roadmap or Destination Postcard. She will show us an internally created program for Agile Leadership development and will demonstrate how to use such program to identify and remove systemic barriers to transformation. At the end, Lenka will moderate an interactive mini-workshop, where you will have the opportunity to try out how to deal with a demanding change using the SWITCH change management method.
