Introducing agile methods into teams is a relatively well known process. If you give people a lot of freedom, support them with trainings including material teams can book, and allow communities of practice to grow and flow and exchange experiences, then Scrum and Kanban teams will spring up everywhere and will try to get better continuously by improving and cross-learning. Getting the managers into the same boat is much more challenging: in their daily work, they do not constantly experience the difference between the current state and previous state, so they are prone to fall back into old behavior patterns. Last year we organized an event for about 200 managers of our product development organization, intended as a wakeup call for the development organization. The event was planned and facilitated with the massive help of the in-house agile community, and was rated “the best event ever” by some of the participants. By doing this, we helped managers to start moving into an agile direction and prepare themselves for the changes to come. This is a mix of a short talk about our event, its goals, methods and outcomes, and a workshop on exchanging what others did in this respect, what worked elsewhere, and how you would go on with this target group. Target group are people who have at least started to facilitate agile transitions, working with managers and teams.
