Topic: Facilitating the Shift to a Collaborative Culture for Agile Project Success
Speaker: Barry Mullan

Abstract

Facilitating the Shift to a Collaborative Culture for Agile Project Success

When organizations adopt Agile practices a fundamental shift in culture is required. Teams are suddenly required to participate in the decision-making process and to take ownership of commitments. Project leaders are expected to create and facilitate this shift to a collaborative culture.

While collaborative cultures ultimately create stronger, more productive teams with a vested interest in an organization's success, the move to collaboration can sometimes be challenging.

This talk will help you to rethink and realign the traditional command-and-control culture of most development groups. We'll discuss the paradigm shift most organizations moving to Agile face in the transition to a collaborative team environment and the importance of facilitating this shift to the success of agile projects.
