Selling agile for management has become a favorite calling and pastime. And resistance to agile by management continues to be a common response. Most of us know of stories where management in large corporations actually say “don’t talk to us about ‘agile’”.

So what’s the agile evangelist to do?

When faced with this challenge I decided to search for other approaches to managing that “felt” agile but (a) did not use the same name and (b) originated in management (as opposed to development). That means I was looking for proven approaches that are holistic, empirical, and rooted in systems thinking.

And I found some. This session will share what I found and make two promises:

For agilists challenged with selling agile to management, it will provide agile-like alternatives that executives may be more receptive to hearing, and thus to trying.

For executives attracted to agile challenged with understanding how agile could work in management, operations, strategy, sales, etc., this session will provide alternatives that have been developed and proven in those management arenas.
