Effective leadership in Agile & DevOps environments (Software QS Tag 2018)

The Agile and DevOps movements place a lot of emphasis on the autonomy, self -organization and responsibility of teams. A common misconception is that there is little or no role for leaders of such teams.

On the contrary! In this rapidly changing world, where competition is fierce and the pressure to deliver is high, effective leaders create environments that allow teams to thrive. They enable, coach and inspire.

But what makes a leader an effective leader? Attend this talk to learn more about various leadership theories, how they can be applied in practice, and my thoughts on leadership based on experience as a tech lead and scrum master and from military service.
