We are a group of Agile Coaches dedicated to invitational agile and Open Space Agility. Fantastic things happen when an organization loosens the bonds of process and opens the door to what can happen. Sound like magic? It is.
Monarch Agile understands the focus of an Agile transformation should not be the transformation itself. The focus should be on the journey towards becoming Agile.
Is the organization mandating Agile processes? Is the Agile implementation struggling…even failing? Are the teams pushing against the grain of adoption? We invite you to consider this: The journey to becoming an Agile organization is a game. Was an invitation to play extended to the teams? Do the teams know the rules of the game? Do you?
Through Open Space Technologies, Monarch Agile can guide your organization by inviting your teams to begin, or restart, the journey to that which makes sense for them. It’s simple really. When the journey belongs to the people, then the adoption that is right for them is the one that is right for the organization; and when allowed to play the game, adoption comes naturally.
You are invited to play.
Speaking of invitations to play, I'd like to invite you to check out some agile events.
Agile Metrics - Aligning with Principles and the Pitfalls of Misunderstanding
May 4, 2021 @5:30pm PST
Registration Link: https://www.meetup.com/SF-Bay-Area-Agile-Coaching-Circles/events/277018039/
Metrics, metrics, everyone outside of the team wants them. Metrics to track team progress on a project/product, project/product success, portfolio success, and the list goes on. There are lots of metrics used before Agile, like the beloved red/yellow/green lights. Because that progress indicator worked so well in other methodologies it should work for Agile, right?!?!? NO!
Come join Karen as she takes your mind (and your metrics) on a journey of truth and discovery.
And just like the end of commercial warnings about things happening to your body for taking the advertised medication, this workshop too comes with warnings… “Warning, attending this session may result in disillusionment of your ideas and thoughts about metrics, having your mind expanded, understanding what the founding fathers of the Agile Manifesto might really have meant by measures of progress, a desire to return to your job and do this exercise with your leadership, having your concept of metrics shattered and yah even the ones we call Agile metrics, getting to understand how metrics can be gamed yep all of them, sleepless night afterwards because your brain is afire with ideas for how to make this work in your organization, happy teams who no longer feel they have to meet a metric instead of build software, happy Scrum Masters who don’t have to create and present meaningless metrics any longer, and happy leaders who finally understand there are better ways to measure success”
Have a manager that needs to hear this, bring them! Have two? Bring them both!
Speaking date in August COMING SOON with The Job Hackers!
