Jean Coetzee: Reimagining Leadership, A Crucial Element in Agile Transformations

In this episode, Jean delves into the critical role of change in Agile adoption and practice. He emphasizes that “change” better encapsulates Agile’s essence, as opposed to its sometimes negative connotations. He explores the challenges faced by Scrum Masters when guiding teams through the change process. Jean advises embracing the discomfort of uncertainty and highlights the importance of finding a change role model within the organization. He stresses that the true challenge lies in the “being” part of change, not just the “doing,” and advocates for a reimagined approach to leadership in order to navigate future transformations effectively.
