Victoria Cassells: What's the advantage of Servant Leadership for you and your organisation?
You are the leaders of the future. As you look round the world today business and society you can see lots of examples of poor leadership and some rare but wonderful examples of leaders who develop and inspire their people. In the processes you use with your clients it is essential that you are feeling confident and are growing as you deliver your work. Servant Leadership is a philosophy and approach which is at the heart of creating and sustaining successful individuals, businesses and relationships.

Colin Jones, Connecting Agile Processes to Business Strategy
Agile delivery micro-ecosystems are well understood, structured, effective and evolutionary. How they link to corporate macro-ecosystems is far less clear. Depending upon the corporate cultures of teams interfacing with Agile squads, working practices can range from aligned and clearly valuable to disconnected and frustrating.
