Hi All,

 

we need to present Agile concept of work to our Leadership team for Our Workforce Project. I need some help in getting the Draft version of the below tasks so we can do a blueprint. This is what we have in Mind, Kindly add if you feel if anything is missing :

Set up a concept of agile work

implement value creating agile modules + SOP (MS Planner, Retrospective?, Sprint planning? etc.)

What communication structure suits the agile way? (see project plan)

What risks do you see in the project? 

When do you plan the agile meetings?

How do you enable your team-members (that are not so familiar with agile work)

How do you manage the sprint planning? finalisation of tasks secured? 

How do you plan to implement the agile way of working?

How will the Leadership team create, communicate, and reinforce the requisite sense of urgency for agile change so different outcomes happen at all?

Who is "we" and do the members of the  "leadership team" understand the implications of introducing an "Agile concept"?  What does an "Agile concept of work" mean to "we"?

You have created many questions in my mind about what you are trying to do that prevent me from actually commenting on your request.  You make your statements as if it is obviously clear to everyone what you mean.  But since you used the noun version of the word agile, it creates more confusion than clarity.  The word "Agile" is something created by people wishing to monetize the creation of the Manifesto for agile software development and it has different meanings for people. The adjective word "agile" has a specific meaning but can be interpreted in many ways when it comes to processes and practices.  

I wish I could help but I honestly have no idea how.

I have a role to promote agility across teams. Where i am getting confused is how to get the leadership to adopt agile for a project of this nature, Since it has never been implemented before

Our Workforce Project

Since you were given a role it would seem that the leadership has some idea of what agile practices would be.  Have you talked to them directly instead of trying to put together a document? The creation of the document seems to me to be unnecessary if they already know about agile practices.  Seems you could start some sort of backlog of work and move forward iteratively improving the backlog as you go.
