What G. Zhukov can Teach us about Xtreme Programming

Session Type: Experience/Research Report Timebox: 30

As a WWII aficionado I have always been amazed by the story of Georgy Zhukov, the outstanding Marshall of the erstwhile Soviet Union, who was responsible for some of the the greatest defeats that Nazi Army had to suffer in the WWII. But what is of interest is the the way he — in contrast to his colleagues — ran the fronts and armies that were under his command and what lessons we can draw about our daily work as enablers of high performing Agile teams. There are important life and leadership lessons that will stand us in good stead to enable teams to undertake effective agile delivery. We will use examples to illustrate points where courage, communication, adaptation and simplicity can improve team functioning and deliver high performing solutions

Key Takeaways:

1. Examples 2. Case Studies 3. Xtreme programming values
