Agile Lighthouse: MVV as a Beacon for your Agile Transformation

Agile Lighthouse: MVV as a Beacon for your Agile Transformation by Melissa Boggs | agile42

Business Agility Conference 2018 Logo Horizontal There is frequent discussion about how a healthy agile culture is imperative to the agile transformation, but how do we develop or grow that culture with intention? This talk discusses how the development of a Mission, Vision, and Values statement can become the foundation for a healthy agile culture, and a lifesaver when the going gets tough. Using real world examples from software and the classroom, I will discuss how Mission, Vision, and Values are the first step toward creating organizational alignment that is necessary to enable agility and the self-organization of teams. I will also talk about how we can lean into that culture (instead of our old habits!) when teams are struggling, deadlines are looming, or we feel like we are sinking in the face of criticism or doubt.
