Enabling a collection of agile practitioners to achieve high levels of performance is a tough job. Most agile experts have strong opinions, lots of experience and BIG opinions on what exactly IS and IS NOT agile.
Of course not all agilists are overly opinionated but they are hired to be experts so it is not wonder that troubles arise when numbers of practitioners need to come together to achieve an organisational outcome.
Key to having the sum of each COE member’s experience equal a larger whole is alignment of objective, a sense of community and consistency of practice/language.
In this Meetup we will go into each of these areas on detail; Niall will share his experience in running multiple large COEs, chapters and practices groups in both consulting firms and as an internal employee.
The key take ways are:
1. what you can do as a COE member to enable high performance.
2.how to identify if your COE, chapter or group is not optimised for high-performance
3. signs and signals to look out for that indicate an unhealthy culture
4. the not-negotiable artefacts, practices and policies I’ve used in the past to enable high-performance
5. tips, tricks and tactics to engage, inspire and manage agile COE members (even if you’re not the lead or Head of)
6. when and how to un-invite a COE member (sometimes required)
