Bent was working in a company that was facing serious economic challenges. This was not a case of Agile adoption, this was a case of changing to survive! Because of the economic challenges, the CEO decided to layoff some staff, and ask for Agile adoption immediately in all the teams. Bent helped the new teams start to work in a hardware business, with an Agile mindset and approach. This led to amazing improvements, and the company survived. Listen in to learn what was the approach, and steps the company took to the adoption of Agile in this crisis.
About Bent Myllerup
Bent Myllerup is a management consultant, organisational change agent and agile transformation coach with 20 years of personal experience in management and leadership. He holds a Master in Management Development (MMD) from Copenhagen Business School and a Bachelor in Science of Electronic Engineering. He was the first European Certified Scrum Coach and he is also a Certified Scrum Trainer.
When Artur started working with payroll, he did what most Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters would do. He suggested that the team stop to learn about Agile. However, this team’s work was continuous and if not completed people would not get paid their salary! This called for a different approach, and we discuss how Artur had to reinvent his role as a coach to help this non-software team.
