What is so special about Agile at Adobe?

You will learn about Adobe’s experience with Agile Leadership and how that led to an experiment with integrating "Intent-Based Leadership" at Adobe and how Adobe was able to advance their mindset and culture to new levels.

Intent-Based Leadership is centered on the set of principles inspired by David Marquet, author of best selling book, Turn the Ship Around where David describes how he turned the USS Santa Fe from the worst performing to best performing ship in the US Navy.  

This session will begin with Andy Worshek, former Chief on the USS Santa Fe, sharing with you first-hand the lessons learned aboard the ship, the history of Intent-Based Leadership, and how David Marquet introduced these principles to the Santa Fe resulting in change from a "Command and Control" model to a "Leader-Leader" model with his leadership team and his crew.  Workshek, will also share the wide-spread affect this had on the ship's culture and affect on the US Navy.

You'll also learn how Adobe worked with Turn the Ship Around, to adopt Intent-Based Leadership as part of their Agile leadership practice from Jeff Leap, Agile Coach at Adobe.  Leap will describe Adobe's partnership to develop new training material and implementation programs for Intent-Based Leadership needed to help Adobe's adoption.
