    & deliver… minimize distractions. Done Done Get to Done Done each sprint... don’t carry work over to the next sprint. Change Bring in change at start of a new sprint… not in the middle. Courage Be courageous when inspecting and adapting… hide nothing. Events Get good at the recurring events… don’t let them become meaningless rituals. FOR USING AGILE WELL TO METABOLIZE CHANGE Top 5 Tips
  19. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins “Implement Scrum and all of

    the reasons that an organization has trouble delivering quality [product] on schedule are thrown up in your face day after day, month after month.” Ken Schwaber Co-creator of Scrum “The only thing Agility is guaranteed to deliver 100% of the time is impediments.” Lyssa Adkins ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins Agility is a relentless impediment revealer
  20. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins Jonathan Smart Impediments are not

    IN the path; impediments ARE the path. @LyssaAdkins ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins
  21. GET AN IMPEDIMENT IN MIND RIGHT NOW (write it down)

    An impediment is anything that slows or stops your ability to deliver. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins

    for good We have an emerging superpower…
  23. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins What’s the current reality? (the

    primary) What’s trying to emerge? (the secondary) Change Edge LIFE PUTS US AT CHANGE EDGES Being a couple… …to being parents Having horrible stage fright… …to playing guitar in bars Enjoying unrestricted mobility… …to being in lockdown Sources: Edge Theory of Change by Arnold Mindell, Application to Coaching by CRR Global: Organization & Relationship Systems Coaching ™

    AT EDGES Being told what to do… …to volunteering for tasks Deciding for the team… …to letting the team decide Avoiding failure at all costs… …to embracing “fail fast” to learn Sources: Edge Theory of Change by Arnold Mindell, Application to Coaching by CRR Global: Organization & Relationship Systems Coaching ™

    FOR YOU Alleviating discomfort as fast as possible… …to experiencing discomfort as a positive indicator of growth Waiting for change to happen from above… …to being an agent of change from where I sit Doing what I'm told… Sources: Edge Theory of Change by Arnold Mindell, Application to Coaching by CRR Global: Organization & Relationship Systems Coaching ™ …to asking questions and voicing opinions so we can all discover what's better
  27. A main reason change edges are not crossed and impediments

    continue to exist is Remember that impediment you thought about a little while ago? To address it, what conversation do you need to have? @LyssaAdkins ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins CONVERSATIONS WE ARE NOT HAVING
  28. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins GET READY TO HAVE THAT

    CONVERSATION Inner work PAUSE. Get clarity, alignment and integrity within yourself. Get to the essence of what you need to assert or ask for. Outer work Practice key moments of the conversation then… Go Do It!
  29. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins GET CLARITY, ALIGNMENT, INTEGRITY WITHIN

    YOURSELF Inner work What is your intention in having this conversation? What is the positive difference that could happen if this conversation goes really well? How much better could it get if the change edge is crossed or the impediment is alleviated? What do you need to ask for? What do you need to assert?
  30. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins Practice key moments of the

    conversation with a friendly colleague. Pro tip: Start the conversation with the answers from your Step 1 questions before diving into “what’s wrong.” Just prior: Connect to your intention for having the conversation. Keep it in mind throughout. Let your intention guide you. GO DO IT! PRACTICE LEY MOMENTS, THEN GO DO IT! Outer work

  32. ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins @LyssaAdkins Instead of thinking of agility

    as something to “do” or even as something to “be”, think of it instead as a brilliant, emergent response that helps us thrive in constant change and disruption. @LyssaAdkins ©2023 Cricketwing Consulting @LyssaAdkins
