I want to know the concrete best practices for Agile managers. And with concrete I mean we should be able to explain to a novice manager how to perform it. “Trust your people” is abstract, not concrete. “Bring them coffee each morning” is concrete.
Many managers and leaders still operate at the Shu-level of management. They need concrete advice, and step-by-step guidance. A person who is just learning to drive a car has no use for high-level values. They need concrete tips for sitting in their chair, holding the wheel, and looking at the road. They will understand the values soon enough, if they survive.
What do we teach managers who are just learning to survive Agile projects?
Please add your suggestions to this blog posts. I will select three people who will each win a free copy of the Management 3.0 book.
