These days, almost every organization is showing interest in Agile. We seem to have all the ingredients for effective transformations: well-known practices, detailed processes, ever-improving tools, extensive literature, myriad certifications, and many consultants. How is it, then, that so few organizations are truly agile? Gil Broza, author of “The Agile Mindset” and “The Human Side of Agile”, thinks that one particular ingredient has been overlooked in the mad rush to adopt Agile. In this session, he leads us on an exploration of that ingredient and its place in an Agile transformation. About Gil Broza

My mission is to make software development more effective, humane, and responsible. I help people and organizations pick up where Scrum left off, especially on the technical and the human sides of Agile. I’ve recently published The Agile Mind-Set: Making Agile Processes Work. In 2012, I published The Human Side of Agile: How to Help Your Team Deliver, the definitive practical book on leading Agile teams to greatness. Any given day, you can find me coaching, consulting, training, speaking, facilitating, and writing. More than 1,000 people have already signed up for my free 20-session mini-program, Something Happened on the Way to Agile.

You get depth. I have programmed professionally for 18 years. I was a development manager for three of those. Since 2004, I’ve introduced and facilitated change from the technical and management perspectives. Lastly, I’m pragmatic; I’m not focused on just one part of the solution (such as process) and you won’t hear me parroting dogma.
