PDUs: 1.0 Technical, 1.0 Leadership
Description: Personal Agility - Success and the Agile Mindset
We hear a lot about personal agility, yet what does it mean to be agile? In today's fast-changing world, an agile mindset is more important than ever.
Those who succeed cannot afford to become overwhelmed by uncertainty. We can beat overwhelm by applying 3 aspects of the Scrum framework:
1) Focus on what's important
2) Accomplish something now, and
3) Reflect on where you are in relation to where you want to be.
Personal agility is an extension of the agile principles we already apply to software development: Set well-defined objectives, put together an action plan based on achievable accomplishments and move forward with actions we can take now. Through accomplishment, we learn from real-life feedback and decide whether to continue or pivot.

For over 20 years, she's been helping software development companies apply agile concepts to set goals, create action plans and achieve the results they want. Now, she applies the same agile techniques and coaches businesses how to focus on what's important, reduce overwhelm and remain competitive.
