I’m excited to share with my readers a free download of my new article, “The Pedagogy Principle: Teaching Agile Leaders How to Teach,” which appears in this month’s Cutter Business Technology Journal.
From the Opening Statement by Guest Editor Don McIntyre:
One of the hallmarks of a mature Agile team is continuous learning. “But,” asks author Jeff Dalton, “do Agile leaders know how and what to teach?” Dalton argues that after decades of “vo-tech” style learning, it’s time for a return to “the collaborative, interpersonal, and analytical skills that … are so important for successful Agile adoption.” He introduces the Agile Performance Holarchy, a “basic framework and curriculum for teaching Agile leaders” that consists of six performance circles: leading, providing, crafting, envisioning, affirming, and teaming. Working to master the performance circles will “help guide aspiring Agile leaders in their transformation from low-trust task managers to high-trust teachers, coaches, and stewards of Agile values.”
