The Role of Middle Management in an Agile World

The Role of Middle Management in an Agile World | Agile (project) management | Scoop.it

When discussion Agile roles, there is much written about the Scrum Master, Product Owner, Development Team, and Customer.  But there is little written about what the Middle Manager should do in an Agile World.

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Quote: "Ultimately, it is important to understand that middle management are critical to the success of an effective Agile deployment.  They are the lynchpin between the executive’s vision for Agile and middle management's willingness to allow Agile to thrive on a team."

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, May 19, 3:49 PM

Leading through complexity is an essential element of change management.  This post  is a good reminder of the layers of difference in change adoption - useful for Jungians - and the MBTI familiar  (Myers Briggs, Keirsey) as well as those using similar personality tools.  


It's also a good reminder for leaders, who know the nuances of any personality assessment.  It highlights that your perspective is quite limited.  Different perspectives of those on your leadership team, if they are diverse and helpful in their differences, and speak up, is of great value in true leadership teamwork.  ~  D

Curiosity as a Leading Indicator of Agile Adoption Success | Agile (project) management | Scoop.it

As I reflect on how engagements go, I’ve come to ask myself, “Why do some teams and organizations take to agile adoption better than others?”  It’s a tough question.  But one that is important to me as an agile coach and how effective I am.

Scrum Framework

Scrum Framework | Agile (project) management | Scoop.it

Last post I wrote, "Scrum is a simple, team-based framework for solving complex problems." How does the Scrum framework actually work?

Scrum is modelled on successful patterns for product development. The classic phase-driven approach, or "relay-race model" was found to be less effective than the team-oriented, "rugby model", in which an interdisciplinary team solves the whole problem together, without explicit phases or formal leadership roles. (See "The New, New Product Development Game" at HBR for the research which inspired Scrum).
