You’ve adopted the Agile, Lean, or DevOps methods just like you’re supposed to, but it isn’t working. Your sprints are more like marathons, you aren’t getting the flexible, rapid delivery you were promised, and you’re wondering if maybe the team is just going through the motions.

The solution is not “agile harder”. Another ceremonial meeting or by-the-book ritual isn’t going to change the dynamics. Instead, start by building trust, creating a culture of commitment and accountability, and watch the transformational results flow.

How do you change your culture? You do it by changing your conversations.

In our book Agile Conversations, we describe numerous techniques for improving your conversations and getting dramatic agile results quickly. In this talk, we will show you how to take your first steps toward a human-centred transformation, using nothing more than a piece of paper, a pen, and a willingness to learn.
