The Professional Agile Leader
The leader’s Journey toward growing mature Agile Teams and Organizations.
We’ve written “The Professional Agile Leader” to help leaders build mature agile organizations. In the book we share the most common situations that leaders will encounter when building an organization that is responsive to the challenges of this complex and challenging world.
With a fictionalized story we will lead you through a number of real-life situations that we witnessed personally and that helped us become the agile leaders we are today. We hope that the learnings we share will help you avoid many of the pitfalls and frustrations in becoming a better leader to your agile teams.
