Top 10 Secrets of Agile Transformation
With Michael Sahota, CEC


The sad reality is that almost all Agile transformations fall significantly short of their goals. Don’t be another casualty!

It has been four years since Michael Sahota wrote "An Agile Adoption and Transformation Survival Guide: Working with Culture" to navigate this space. Learn the secrets Michael has learned through many failures and some incredible wins since then.

These ten secrets may be thought of as a playbook or set of patterns that I have seen emerge with successful Agile transformations. Some are focused on fostering a sense of urgency. Others help leaders understand the key role they play in fostering a culture that prepares the organization for sustained growth and evolution.


Michael Sahota believes people deliver astounding results when they have: Passion and purpose; joy and meaning; and creativity, safety, trust, and belonging. Michael helps leaders cultivate their organizational culture, invite a more conscious way of being and relating, and evolve organizational structures.
