If Agile teams are self-organizing, what do the managers do?
After over a decade searching for answers to this question, we’ve found some answers that have helped managers in organizations across multiple industries empower their teams, increase engagement, and provide innovation and value that significantly improved business results.
Want to develop your capability to be a different kind of manager, one that creates the conditions for high-performing teams to thrive? Join us for a half-day workshop to:
- Get a clear map of the agile manager’s role: Three Jobs with two lenses
- Identify the most important area to focus on right away to start having a bigger impact
- Decide what you can delegate to the team vs. what actions you should own as a manager
- Understand the key difference between a management backlog (for an individual or a management team) and a traditional agile team’s backlog
- Understand how to refine that management backlog and what iteration on those backlog items looks like (hint: it’s not the same as working in Sprints with done increments)
The workshop is hosted virtually to allow for people everywhere to participate, but it’s not a boring, slide-driven webinar. You’ll have fun collaborating with other attendees as we work through the concepts and how they apply in your context. Most participants get as much benefit from networking and learning from their peers in the workshop as they do from the content!
We’ve had such a good experience sharing this content with others that we’ll guarantee it’s worth your time and money. If you leave this workshop unsatisfied with the value of the time invested with us, we’ll provide a full refund.

About the Course Facilitators
Peter helps leaders discover how to create the outcomes they care about the most. He draws on a unique combination of deep empathy and keen insight developed by an almost stubborn insistence on staying actively involved in seemingly disconnected fields, including the creative arts, business, psychology, leadership, organizational design, and philosophy. Peter majored in music composition at Arizona State University. He is an in-demand trumpet player and recording engineer.
At Adobe Systems, Peter led an Agile transformation that enabled the shift to a subscription business model. He co-developed the Certified Agile Leadership program for the Scrum Alliance. He has trained, coached, and advised dozens of organizations to create outcomes that range from leadership development, to creating vision and strategy, to creating a culture of innovation, to clarifying and validating customer segments and needs, to reinventing business models and products, to creating high performing, Agile teams.
Peter is a Certified Scrum Trainer, a graduate of the ORSC coaching system, a certified Leadership Agility and Leadership Circle coach, a certified Innovation Games practitioner, and the co-founder of the Humanizing Work company. He is an avid reader and idea-combiner. He is a firm believer in the power of range and a growth mindset. He spends his working hours dedicated to nudging the world of work towards a more human-centric, meaningful, and prosperous future. He spends his other waking hours enjoying time with his wife and five kids, running, hiking, playing golf, and making music and visual arts.
Richard Lawrence’s superpower is bringing together seemingly unrelated fields and ideas to create new possibilities. Drawing on a diverse background in software development, engineering, anthropology, design, and political science, Richard trains and coaches people to collaborate more effectively with other people to solve complex, meaningful problems.
Richard is a Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coach and Certified Scrum Trainer, as well as a certified trainer of the accelerated learning method, Training from the Back of the Room. His book, Behavior-Driven Development with Cucumber, was published by Addison-Wesley in 2019 (for more information, visit bddwithcucumber.com).
When he’s not working with clients, you’ll often find Richard cooking, playing music, practicing Muay Thai, or flying down a mountain on his mountain bike.
Bring this training into your organization! Public courses are great for individuals or small groups to grow their skills in a cost-effective way. But there’s nothing like a private workshop that just includes people from your organization. Private workshops allow you to dig deep into your unique challenges and opportunities.
