    Many agile teams suffer from the mismatch of agile and organizational leadership, with the latter being reflected by the organizational hierarchy. Based on self-organization and iterative processes, the agile teams run into trouble with the top-down steering of their environment. Consequently, agile proponents very often believe that a supportive agile organization should be structured without hierarchies, the so called “no managers” approach of “reinvented organizations.” Several companies in the agile field are experimenting with different organizational approaches that don’t use hierarchies. Yet, “no hierarchy” or “no managers” is not an option for many organizations.

    In this session we suggest using sociocracy as a solution that leaves the hierarchies in place in an agile way - an option the organization is free to choose. Sociocracy shows how hierarchies can actually be agile and can strongly support (rather than opposing) agile philosophy. It enables managers to become agile leaders. As a participant you will learn how the principles of shared decision making and double-linking are key to enabling self-organization. These principles convert hierarchies from linear to circular so that they support an agile mindset.

    Sociocracy is a way for groups and organizations to self-organize. Based on four principles (self-organizing teams, shared decision making based on consent, double-linking, and electing people by consent to functions and tasks), sociocracy provides a path for existing organizations to have empowerment and self-responsibility on all levels. Different than comparable methods, sociocracy allows companies to start where they are – with their existing organizational structures and the like. It seems to be a perfect fit for organizations that need to be truly agile (due to market pressure) beyond their IT departments and software teams.

    Why one size doesnt fit all?  - Selecting scaling framework.

    This session will focus on what are the aspects organizations should consider when they want to scale agile implementation in organization.  There are several frameworks out there like SAFe, LeSS, Spotify, and so on. what is it that organization is trying to achieve and how a systematic approach of scaled agile implementation can help the organization.

    Attendees will be able to understand what aspects should be considered before organization decides to scale agile.  How to scale agile and when to do it largely depends on what organization is trying to achieve. Each organization is operating it in different way so there is no defined formula or framework that will work for all. But guidelines from this session will help the members to identify their needs and then take further action.  These guidelines can help the organization to successfully scale agile irrespective of which framework is selected.

     This is about agile “anti-patterns”: “something that looks like a good idea, but which backfires badly when applied” (Coplien). Todd has been around agile development from before it was called agile.  In that time, he’s seen teams fall into the trap of many of these anti-patterns, becoming stuck without ever realizing it. Frequently, this is due to a dogmatic understanding of what is right and wrong about scaling and agile development. The first step to getting unstuck is to be able to detect these “sins.” The presentation aims to expose teams to these common pitfalls and then also provide a vision for a virtuous path to take them to the Promised Land.

    Real, tangible development value occurs only when the end users are successfully operating the Solution in their environment. This demands that the complex routine of deploying to operations, or moving to production, receives early and meaningful attention during development. 

    To ensure the faster flow of value to the end user, this presentation will suggest the mechanisms for tighter integration of development and deployment operations using SAFe.

    Aino will share her experiences with distributed retrospectives; those that went well as well as those which did not go well. She will describe what worked in those that worked and what did not work in those that did not. You will come away with things to be aware of when preparing a distributed retrospective, how to organise it, how to prepare it and how to facilitate it during the retrospective in a virtual setting. There will be links to different technologies also, but also an opportunity to ask questions and share your own experiences.

    Having a clear purpose in both life and work is essential to happiness. And, science and business support this view. Companies with a clear purpose perform better than companies without. Purpose is increasingly seen as the key to navigate the volatile and complex world we live in. And, people with a purpose in their live longer and are healthier. However, finding your purpose, your personal and companies purpose, is not an easy task. In this workshop we discuss what purpose means and key elements of a sustainable and meaningful purpose. We elaborate the four steps to identify the company purpose and how to build your business around it.
