Every organization is able to achieve major improvements. Overcome fear-driven management by proving results of guerrilla scrum. Do some marketing and present your real improvements and results. Persuade as many people as you can, so that being agile becomes common sense.
The most important agile principle of “Inspect and Adapt” will help your organization to embrace change.
Change requires people with the ability to drive that change. Many people have to play Scrum Master, Product Owner, and other agile roles. They do their very best and yet keep standing. They inspect but do not adapt. These people do not have the required driving skill as they miss one major inner force: drive-driven personality.
Drive-Driven Personality is needed to push changing the world!
Agile development requires trust, but will also create trust. Agile is a positive trust spiral. Non-agile development is based on distrust, and will create distrust. Agile development cannot happen until all stakeholders have turned the trust spiral around. In this workshop we will explore techniques to initiate trust in a not yet agile organisation. Using ideas from appreciative inquiry, we identify situations that initiated trust in us. We discuss the prerequisites, properties and results of the techniques used. Then we explore other situations where the techniques also could be applied.
