Say “Yes” to “No” – The Power of “No” in Agile

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The world of Agile is rooted in the value of “people and interactions” and in our conversations we implicitly value the power of “yes.” Yes to iterating. Yes to change. Yes to our stakeholders, customers, and leaders. Yes AND sometimes what is most needed is a graceful, agile “no.” Often, the automatic “yes” leads to bloated backlogs, missed commitments, and reduced transparency and trust between our teams and their stakeholders. Join us in this interactive workshop to explore the power of “No.” When should it be “No, not now.” and when should it be “No, not ever.” How to open a conversation that could lead to a “no” and how to coach a stakeholder to receive and interpret a “no.” This is one session you should definitely say “yes” to!
