Lean & Agile adoption for an innovative workplace

About the Book

Agile adoption can only be successful when the people themselves create the necessary changes and are committed and feel accountable for it. The goal, vision and reasons for the adoption should be clearly communicated. But the path towards them can only emerge by walking it.

In EMERGENT, Cesario Ramos shares his experience in Agile adoption. He introduces the Emergent Innovation Framework that you can use to:

- Successfully lead your Agile adoption

- Engage people in the change so that the change sticks

- Create an innovative workplace that enables the needed changes to reveal themselves.

The ideas in this booklet come from years of leading Agile change initiatives, guiding teams, projects, departments and organizations in changing to a Agile way of developing products.

See: Recording of Cesario Ramos explaining the Emergent Innovation canvas at the Scrum.org global meetup.

Amazon Watch

Supporting Indigenous Peoples. Protecting the Amazon.

Amazon Watch is a nonprofit organization founded in 1996 to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. We partner with indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability and the preservation of the Amazon's ecological systems.

We envision a world that honors and values cultural and biological diversity and the critical contribution of tropical rainforests to our planet's life support system. We believe that indigenous self-determination is paramount, and see that indigenous knowledge, cultures and traditional practices contribute greatly to sustainable and equitable stewardship of the Earth. We strive for a world in which governments, corporations and civil society respect the collective rights of indigenous peoples to free, prior and informed consent over any activity affecting their territories and resources. We commit, in the spirit of partnership and mutual respect, to support our indigenous allies in their efforts to protect life, land, and culture in accordance with their aspirations and needs.
