Live Webinar July 29, 2011 – 2:00 pm EDT
Presented by CollabNet
Duration: 1 Hour + 30 min Question Period 1 Category C PDU Free

NOTE : At this time – Collabnet has the WRONG Description of this seminar on the registration page the correct description is as follows.

We often speak about ‘self organizing teams’ in the Agile space without properly defining how such teams behave or the best ways to lead them.

Based on work with Agile teams as well as research on the topic of self organizing teams and leadership, we use an “Agile Team Maturity Scale.”In coaching and training at different organizations these concepts are used to work with Agile leaders and teams in recognizing characteristics of team behavior.

One key factor is when and how an Agile team leader needs to modify his or her behavior to support the team’s movement towards true self organization.

This workshop takes a dual-thread approach by examining both the behavior of Agile teams and the roles and behaviors of effective Agile leaders.

Slides from a previous presentation are available here.
