SHIFT events for Agile organizations: Why SHIFT events?

Do you sometimes wish there was a greater capacity for using Agile well in your organization? Do you look out across your agile coaches, product owners, or agile transformation leads and think, โ€œIf only we could shift up the skills or capabilities of that community, things would go so much better.โ€

Tapping into communities across the organization to activate them in new ways can create a powerful shift. Let Lyssa help.

SHIFT Events for Agile Organizations

What are the benefits of SHIFT events?

Community groups hear clear messages about Agile coaching from one of the most known leaders in the field. A community group can consist of Agile Coaches (Scrum Masters, Kanban Leads, Agile Coaches, Release Train Engineers, Delivery Leads, etc.), Product Owners, Transformation Leaders, or Organizational Leaders.

The community immediately engages with the material through thought-provoking exercises and new-perspective conversations.

Everyone shares the same peak experience, creating fertile ground for ongoing conversation and problem resolution.

Participants experience a new โ€œstate of beingโ€ in their Agile capability and new possibilities open up, even for the difficult on-going problems.

Agile communities get a strong start or a new revival.
