  • Worked as part of an Agile team.  Or read a book on Agile methodology.  
Your Days Might Sound Like This, As You:  
  • Focus on Growth:  "Rather than trying to solve for all of those challenges, let’s prioritize the areas for focus in our next sprint.  The others will move to our backlog.”
  • Advocate for the Learner: “Getting everyone together for a five day classroom course would be a lot of fun.  But let me suggest a blend of different instructional methods that would be more likely to create the lasting leadership skills we need.”
  • Champion the New: “If we move these legacy areas over to vendor training, we can free up capacity to put more attention on our Industry X.0 Academy.”
  • Design for Experience: “We know this audience values networking and collaboration.  Let’s design our peer learning cohorts to maximize connections across our people.”
  • Invest Wisely: “Our forecast suggests that we are on a path for overspend by Q3.  Let’s take a Zero-Based Budgeting approach to our next six months."
