Responsible Tech Summit

My good friend Phil Gadzinski and I were recently asked to speak at the Responsible Tech Summit 2020 recently. Phil and I are very passionate about agile governance, especially now that remote working has become a dominant way of working . This is our presentation:

Creating the next normal: remote agile governance

The spread of COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact on the world. Social distancing and lockdowns have forced an unexpected shift to remote working, and many businesses have been caught unprepared.

While some had no remote working capability at all, others were able to successfully enable their whole company to work from home. However, once the initial shift was made, few have clear processes or procedures in place for how to work together remotely over a sustained amount of time. With traditional Agile leadership and governance structures specifically designed to help teams excel when they are co-located, what can you do when that’s not possible?

As the ongoing impact of COVID-19 continues to emerge, organisations with Agile teams are among the best-positioned to succeed, given their ability to adapt to a rapidly changing business environment. With organisations focused on their ability to maintain profitability and survive, effectiveness and efficiency counts greatly. But to sustain the effectiveness of their Agile teams, leaders must now overcome a new challenge.
