Leading in an agile organization - A leadership program

R&D organizations integrate and implement advanced development approaches and methodologies, most of which are presented under the Devops and Agile umbrella (SCRUM, Extreme Programming, Lean Software Development, Kanban and others). 
Each of the methodologies present different professional and conceptual emphases, but when reviewed from a management and leadership standpoint, they demonstrate a common denominator that defines the role perception and management and leadership skills required of managers in R&D organizations:
  1. Employee development and empowerment, enabling them to function as Self-managed Employees and Self-managed Teams.
  2. The manager as a process facilitator (process matter expert) and not the problem solver (subject matter expert).
  3. Managing various professional disciplines in which the manager is not the content expert.
  4. Management derived of understanding the market, the product and the clients, and not just the technological perspective.
  5. Striking a balance between Zoom In (delivery) and Zoom Out.
  6. Integrating a culture of learning and drawing conclusions.
 
The importance of these perceptions and skills entails a change in manager’s performance and determines their ability to achieve increasingly challenging and complex objectives. 
This leadership development workshop focuses on R&D organizations leaders.  It was developed through experience, understanding and a deep acquaintance with the processes prevalent in R&D organization recent years.
