Your team is Agile. Management is used to Waterfall. Teams are upset and feel constrained; management is nervous and getting more in the way.

Is there a better approach?

You might have many years of experience leading a “traditional” organization that is focused on contracts, planning, monitoring, phases and gate reviews. If so, you might be experiencing Agile-shock when leading Agile teams.

Don't panic! With a few changes in your style and setting expectations, Agile teams can become happy with you, and vice versa.

The purpose of any life cycle or development process is to manage customer needs, time, money, team synergy, risk and quality. These are the variables that you want to define and manage while your Agile teams do their thing.

Knowing what an Agile team is trying to achieve, and how that fits into your expectations to run a business, will help you know what level of involvement is needed.

This presentation discusses 10 leadership practices you can perform to set the direction, understand what the Agile teams are doing, and get out of the way.
