Trust vs. Trustworthiness w/ Yaton Bowens

LeadingAgile Managing Consultant Yaton Bowens joins Dave to talk about the role that trust plays in Agile Transformation. Building on Mike Cottmeyers’ Trust vs. Trustworthiness webinar, Yaton and Dave dig into some of the trust gaps that management and the Development Teams have to cross for an Agile Transformation to take root in an organization.

Without a track record to demonstrate trustworthiness, how can management trust that the team will deliver? And how can the team trust that management will allow them to get the work done? To make things even more complicated, many organizations have not been designed with systems that support trust and trustworthiness.

We’ll delve into the answers to these questions and more this week.
