Date & Time

Lessons on change from coaching a beer company across multiple operating companies, and how HR teams can make a difference. 


Driving lasting change in organisations is hard, and even harder when you don’t have the formal authority to mandate it.  In this case study, Agile adoption was led by the Human Resources teams across Europe, supported by an external coach.

Come and hear about the different approaches we used to facilitate Agile adoption across Europe – the successes, the mis-steps and most importantly, the learnings. 

Elements we’ll cover include getting started with projects, the role of training and community building, and how to maintain momentum once the ball is rolling. 

Drawing on my expertise in consumer marketing and learning, I’ll share specific influence and change models that work.   Informed by behaviourial psychology and real-life practice, they can help you increase Agile adoption in your team or organisation.
