Plan an iteration - sounds pretty easy right? It can be easy using a well defined framework. This sessions will cover the following:
- Owner or facilitator of the meeting
- When to hold the meeting
- Whom to invite
- Materials - please note that this session is not tool specific other than Sharpies and Sticky Notes! But the plan can be input into your tool of choice.
- Planning Data - what to bring to the planning meeting
- Output & Deliverables - All contribute to the iteration planning meeting
A handout will be provided for future reference.
“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 is a highly participative workshop for delegates to learn more about collaborative and organisational storytelling. Personal stories will be told, retold and analysed, to investigate underlying values, through a series of collaborative story-games. Collaborative storytelling will be explored as an activity for team building, coordination and problem-understanding. Attendees will participate in generating ideas for a set of story-cards that could be used to help teams explore their own values, beliefs and concerns through collaborative storytelling around software projects.
The Agile Alliance states that “The Gordon Pask Award recognizes two people whose recent contributions to Agile Practice make them, in the opinion of the Award Committee, people others in the field should emulate.” This panel brings together some of the previous winners so that they may share their contributions and help encourage others to participate in building the body of Agile knowledge. For the intermediate practitioner, it should reinforce the notion that as we practice Agile and learn how to adapt for the best outcome, sharing what we learn helps the whole community.
Agile coaches often need to distinguish when people “do” an agile practice versus “really understand” that practice. This workshop will help coaches develop a tool, mapping agile practices, or more specifically, behaviours people exhibit when using an agile practice, to a learning model. The learning model of choice for this workshop is the Dreyfus Model of Skill Acquisition. We will also discuss how to apply this tool to better communicate and set goals with teams “going agile”.
Do you mentor, coach, teach or just help other people? Do you wonder why after your greatest teaching moments people just don’t get it? In recent years neuroscience has started to provide us with a number of insights in what happens when we’re teaching. These insights make it clear that learning is really about building and reinforcing existing neural networks. Instead of providing lots of new ideas out of the blue, we need to understand the learners existing context and work with that. Instead of focusing on mistakes and errors, we need to focus on what good solutions look like.
