Talk: Learn, unlearn, relearn: the role of senior leadership in building an agile organisation

Senior leaders play a pivotal role in supporting and scaling agile across an organisation. Remember, their roles change too!
Top-down sponsorship is not enough: senior leaders must embrace and visibly role-model an agile mindset and leadership values. This requires an important, and sometimes uncomfortable journey of unlearning and relearning leadership.

Key contributions of senior agile leaders: Provide purpose, empower management & teams and design for aligned autonomy, give control through shared leadership at eye level, be present and available, but not directive, foster psychological safety and fast learning cycles.
