About this Case Study

Shall we be honest? Agile isn’t all glamour, manifestos and medals. If you’ve found a new way of doing things, it's hard getting the right people to listen, never mind do. As reluctant change agents, we find ourselves campaigning for what we believe through a sea of resistance and indifference. There are bad days, weeks, months - and even years.

So how do people and teams get through it and enable change? Why are some folk still smiling at the end of the toughest days? Resilience, the ability to adapt to new challenges and stressful situations, is one of the key factors.

In this session, we look at resilience: what it is, when and why it’s useful and how to develop the trait within yourself and your team. You may not need it now, but you never know when you will...
