Hello, I am engaging with a team of underwriters for a large-scale effort; the underwriters are the business partners, so they will be Product Owners, Product Managers, Business Owners, etc.
Underwriters are UBER risk adverse, like excruciatingly low levels of detail and are highly numbers driven (yes, broad categorization, but the underlying meaning is clear - they are or can be very change-resistant and detrimental to the iterative and incremental nature of Agile).
Does anyone have any good pointers, tips, techniques for helping to shift a group of underwriters to the Agile mindset? Helping them to make the mental shift to being more iterative, more engaged and collaborative members of the team and program team?
Thanks in advance for anything you can share!
