Join us in welcoming the awesome Jean Tabaka whose talk "Tell Me Why" will cover "agile adoptions and the Golden Circle".

In her words:

In September of 2009, Simon Sinek delivered a Ted Talk on “How Great Leaders Inspire Action.” Sinek’s talk and subsequent book,“Start with Why,” have resonated deeply for me with regard to our Agile adoptions. What’s going on here? Often, we start with What: “What practices shall we adopt in order to make us Agile,” as the core for our plans. If we are really daring and step back a little, we may think about How: “How can we make this adoption really work? What will tell us what practices to adopt?”  The WHY for all of this can be conspicuous by its absence: “Why are we even thinking of doing this?” In this talk, I’d like us to take on the challenge of Sinek’s Golden circle. I’d like us to test our own WHY HOW WHAT of our Agile adoptions. I’d like us to consider creating and continually challenging our own Agile "Golden Circles" of "Why How What" for successful transformations.
