“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.” – Chinese Proverb
Agile teams that rapidly learn and apply new-found skills become increasingly adept at embracing change and delivering value. Team members feel more fulfilled, motivated and valued. And they have way more fun!
In this session you will learn about agile learning! Learn to recognize learning moments and put in place effective learning patterns tuned to your team and context. Learn how to build and sustain an effective learning culture on your agile team.
This tutorial is a detailed look at several Agile practices and the HOWTO of Adopting each practice successfully. We will cover the business value delivered and the context where they are most effective. For each practice you will learn what steps can be done to effectively get from “I want to do this practice” to “I’m doing it and getting obvious value” and, just as importantly, what happen when things go wrong and how you can diagnose these difficulties.
A variety of practices will be covered including: Stand Up Meetings, Iterations, Demos, Automate Developer Tests, and Refactoring.
A participatory workshop where coaches can share their experiences in coaching agile teams in hostile environments, what they did to avoid the pain, and how they turned toxic organizational inertia and attack against itself or circumvented the same to realize more agility. The session will be facilitated and will be oriented around capturing tricks, tips, and techniques, but will also allow for some sobbing and frustration and ranting. Epic fails are definitely welcome. The most sought after stories and ideas will be those which use the opposition’s own strength to advance the effort.
Agile fails without executive leadership. Although pockets of Agile can flourish for a while, only executives have the power to make an entire organization change.
The agile community has tried to sell executives on Agile rather than involve them. This workshop involves participants in discovering and documenting patterns for Agile executives to use. It builds on our previously-presented CTO research.
This session is appropriate for executives with Agile experience and for gurus who commonly work with executives. Others should wait for the results.
Facilitation skills are essential for anyone. In fact, everyone facilitates whether they know it or not! Do you work on a team, manage an organization, or otherwise work with others? The opportunity to facilitate will come up.
