A 45 minute Case Study by:

Andrea Provaglio

Agile Enterprise Coach

About this Case Study

Self-organisation and empowerment are just the counterparts of Agile leadership — the two simply cannot exist without the other.

But what is the nature of Agile leadership? How is it different from other approaches? Or, even better, is there only one way of leading in Agile (such as the oft-mentioned servant leadership) or things are more contextual and complex?

Complexity thinking is one of the approaches that we'll take to explore the meaning of leadership and of some of its facets. But we'll also touch on the ethics of leadership for teams, for leaders, for coaches and for change agents in general because, when it comes to influencing others, questioning the foundations of that relationship is critical.

By attending this session you'll get a multidimensional perspective on the art and practice of leading, that will help you create an healthy organisation where purpose, autonomy and clarity become part of the DNA of your Agile culture.

About the Speaker

I help knowledge-based organisations, including IT companies, to rethink their organisational dynamics, their organisational structures, their mental models, their practices and their processes, to let them operate better in the 21st century.

I work closely with executives, managers and teams and I do a number of things including one-on-one coaching, team coaching, consulting on specific practices and, occasionally, hands-on training.

I’m especially interested in distributed leadership and self-organisation for knowledge-based organisations, a topic that touches on a number on subjects, including non-conventional organisational structures and individual and collective communication and social skills. And, I’m a long-standing Agile practitioner.

In over 20 years of professional experience, I worked with organisations as big the United Nations’ FAO and as small as dynamic post-startup companies, in many different countries. I have a wide range of expertise, in both the public and private sector, with both large and small organisations and with different cultures.

Currently I work in Europe. I've also worked in the USA on a O-1 visa for "extraordinary abilities in Sciences”.
