Arlen Bankston and Brad Stokes chat about how HR can support a journey into an Agile environment, supporting the team, metrics and using HR as a stepping stone to transform an entire organisation. It is Agile and PeopleOps with Arlen Bankson.
Arlen is one of LitheSpeed’s two founders and owners and has been actively involved in the application and evolution of Agile software development processes such as Scrum, Kanban and Extreme Programming for over a decade and a half. He is also a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt and was an early adopter in the application of broader lean principles to agile methods to deepen theoretical understanding and drive organizational change.
This week’s episode features special guest William Strydom and host Troy Lightfoot on the topic of “Transformative Cultural Change.” William and Troy discuss why “transformations” in general are so difficult and how Agile transformations are not unique to cultural change. They apply the lessons learned in Apartheid South Africa to change at the individual, team and and organizational levels in Agile Transformations. They also dive into why coaches who are expected to “install or roll out” agile will have limited success if the underlying human psychology is ignored.

Each person, each company, will need to experiment with tools and processes to find what makes him, her, or them most productive. Listen in and learn about the tools available and various processes that can work for different kinds of remote teams.
