Presentation: Tim Lister on Agile Leadership

In this presentation, recorded at the the APLN summit last year, Leadership guru Tim Lister explains the principles of Agile Project Leadership in the framework of the Agile Declaration of Interdependence, which states that we are a community of project leaders that are highly successful at delivering results. To achieve these results:
  • We increase return on investment by making continuous flow of value our focus.
  • We deliver reliable results by engaging customers in frequent interactions and shared ownership.
  • We expect uncertainty and manage for it through iterations, anticipation, and adaptation.
  • We unleash creativity and innovation by recognizing that individuals are the ultimate source of value, and creating an environment where they can make a difference.
  • We boost performance through group accountability for results and shared responsibility for team effectiveness.
  • We improve effectiveness and reliability through situationally specific strategies, processes and practices.
