The job boards contain many Agile anti-pattern roles. Recruiters need our support to do their job better, to truly develop the agile mindset.

Session Abstract:

For the last 8 months, we have dedicated our free time to teach & coach recruiters on the Agile mindset. Recruiters place Agile change agents into roles & so it is vital that we help support recruiters to do a better job. The anti-pattern roles are symptom of a challenging problems. Both in the lack of Agile knowledge & the organizational pressure recruiters experience to make sales.

Our alternative style of teaching (inspired by Sharon Bowman) & our vision of creating a connected community (with recruiters) has led to increased Agile knowledge & confidence resulting in recruiters challenging client’s anti-pattern requests.
