Talk: What happens with leaders and their responsibilities when organization becomes agile and flat?

In most organizations, one of the biggest challenges in going Agile is to figure out how a flat hierarchy could work; what happens with people in different leading or management roles; how their experience and skills can be utilized in a flat hierarchy, with self-managing teams, what happens with these responsibilities. There is a considerable risk that such people leave after most of their responsibilities are dissolved into the Scrum teams.

I’ll present you how we encountered these issues, the structure we developed to address them.
