Agile Leadership – A Matter of Providing Cover
In the early days of agile adoption, the role that leaders played was marginalized or fuzzy at best. Was it just a vision and budgetary focus or something more? A “day in the life” of the agile leader wasn’t very clear. Well, fast forward to today, and the role is clearer, but still confusing. But the good news is that Ralph Kasuba will be your guide to more effective agile leadership.
Ralph’s experience is that today’s agile leaders need to provide cover for their teams. Cover to do their best work. Cover so that they stay focused. Cover to effectively collaborate. Cover to ensure they’re working on the most important products and projects. Cover so they feel…trusted. Cover so they actually behave and deliver in an agile fashion, with creativity, quality, empowerment, accountability, and joy. And yes, all of this in the real world.
