    Nils Kappeyne - Winning Capabilities in a changing Energy Environment

    45 Mins
    Keynote
    Executive

    Shell is one of the largest energy companies in the world, with a long history in Oil & Gas. The Oil & Gas market is known for its long (multi-year) projects and pay-back periods. However, the rise of renewable energy and a changing technology landscape requires doing business differently. One of Shell’s responses to the changing environment is embracing digitalization as an opportunity, and fundamental element of doing business. Nils Kappeyne (VP & CIO of Integrated Gas & New Energies) will share his perspective on how Shell is ‘acting its way into the future’. In this key-note, Nils will explain more about the ‘digital ventures’ that are part of Shell’s New Energies business, and share how a corporation with >90,000 staff is on its way to embed digitalization in the way we do business on a daily basis.

    ING has been undergoing a large-scale transformation with respect to how we work. From waterfall to end-to-end agile, from a few, large, manually controlled IT changes per year to ten thousands of fully automated changes per month. From outsourcing where ING thinks and partners do to co-sourcing where thinking and doing is distributed with the partners. We have become proud but intrinsically face the risk we focus too strongly on how we work and forget what we do. Hence the strong focus on strategy definition, a QBR process, and Obeya rooms being the start and end of design thinking.

    Governments the world over are beginning to recognise the need to embrace digital change and transform how they provide services. A pioneer of that was the UK which in 2011 began an ambitious programme of digital change, led by a new unit called the Government Digital Service. Over five years they transformed users' experience of dozens of government services, saved billions of pounds in the process, and embedded significant new capabilities across government. James Stewart was one of the founders of that unit and led much of its work on technology and security. He'll share some lessons from that journey and how they can be used for others on a similar journey in any complex organisation (not just governments).

    Beginner

    I have given several presentations about the use of stories instead of science in our industry, so I thought I should try to be more helpful and give a session on experiments. No, this is not too rigorous! I am not going to talk about statistics! I am going to talk about cheap, easy experiments, what to do, what to be aware of, including our cognitive biases. I share some of my experiences with teams who are really doing it. My goal is to encourage everyone to be a bit more methodical in decision-making and to replace "that won't work" with "how can we test it." I hope that participants will walk out the door with a plan in hand for one or more experiments to run in their workplace. I also hope to improve the scientific vocabulary a bit and describe some cognitive biases that get in the way of decision-making.

    Steve Denning - From Operational to Strategic Agility

    45 Mins
    Keynote
    Executive

    Agile management has become necessary to survive, but is it enough to thrive? Many organizations have embraced Agile management on the assumption that if they upgrade existing products and services through cost reductions, time savings or quality enhancements for existing customers (i.e. operational Agility), they will realize financial gains. Owing to increased competitive pressures, this assumption often proves incorrect and consequently top management support for Agile often flags. It turns out that major financial gains are more likely to come from Strategic Agility, i.e. generating innovations that create entirely new products and markets, and that turn non-customers into customers. Strategic Agility is the next frontier of Agile management. The profit margins are bigger, and the value to society is often larger. Steve will show what’s involved in achieving Strategic Agility, including a playbook for systematically generating market-creating innovations and the necessary shift in culture that is required.

    Gregor Hohpe - Adopting DevOps? You are Aiming at the Wrong Target!

    45 Mins
    Keynote
    Intermediate

    Agile methods and DevOps approaches can bring enormous benefits to an organization by increasing flexibility, reducing time-to-value, all while increasing quality. However, these are not methods you simply "adopt". They require a substantial transformation of a company's values, beliefs, and processes. For example, DevOps is about removing impediments from the flow in the software delivery to the business. Likewise, agile requires changing the way the company budgets and funds projects.

    This session reflects on the experience of truly transforming IT inside a large organization as opposed to simply adopting DevOps.

    Agile development has fixed lots of problems in software development, Companies using it consistently deliver working software more predictably than ever before. But, the software they make isn't necessarily better, or more successful in the market. Because the things we need to do to make a product successful aren't baked into agile development. And, in fact, strict adherence to common agile practice can result in even worse products.

    This talk explains why and gives you 5 concrete changes to Agile development you can make to improve things. These aren't things your product owner or product manager must do. They're the things the whole team need to do. And, they're not easy things. But, they're necessary if you want to more consistently make products people love.

    “An Out-Of-The-Box implementation of Agile & Lean : Agile & Lean Movie Making” is a fresh and innovative topic and most importantly it has got a completely new dimension of tailoring and adopting Agile & Lean like best practices from other industries like Movie Production Industry to the IT (Software) world and vice a versa like we did the same a decade back by adopting Six-Sigma & Lean practices from Toyota & Motorola. This framework also talks about the extent agile & lean techniques can be tailored to deal with very specific scenarios or in very specific industries. The topic and the framework has been discussed, debated and finally accepted by the Agile & Lean communities worldwide as it challenges some of the standard Agile, Lean and Kanban practices which cannot be implemented as its original form in many exceptional scenarios.”

    This also open a different spectrum of how Agile practices with required tailoring can be implemented in any industry or any work.
    The session also reiterates the fact that Agile & Lean principles are not specific and limited for to any specific industry but the same can be applied to any industry and even in our day today work and get benefited.
    1. Do NOT associate or trademark or limit Agile & Lean with any specific industry.
    2. It’s Versatile. It’s a Methodology of Working which can be applied in any industry, any business and in any work.
    3. More you practice Agile & Lean more you mature and invent. There is No End to it.
    4. Many a times we do many things unknowingly in Agile & Lean way and we get fantastic results.

    Going from Individual to the collective perspective, our shared values, culture, experiences, circumstances, geography, structure, and setup.

    In much of our everyday life, tools and technology are displacing human interactions. This trend is everywhere and it is affecting how we work together, or don’t work.

    How did we get here and more importantly where do we go from here? In today’s changing world, where technology is outpacing humans we are always upgrading our gadgets, PCs, and phones to the latest operating system. Is it time for the next version of the Human Operating Systems? The head, heart, and gut.

    Change is not easy…but needed. Every upgrade brings to light defects eventually fixed with a patch. The fear of having to adjust and a defect eventually overcome should not be the reasons we use not to upgrade.

    An easy way to upgrade is Awesomeness Cocktail.

    Keynote
    Advanced

    In today’s fast changing world, building a successful product is key for an organization. With ever changing requirements, building the most valuable and viable product for customers in a shorter time window is essential. Communication and collaboration of the teams working on the product are of utmost importance to build the right product/features. Drawing inspiration from agile manifesto – individuals and interactions, teams need to focus on continuous flow of information and minimize the time delays in information exchange. However, distributed nature of the workforce impacts the way teams bind together to deliver the right product.

    Effectiveness of geographically distributed teams will be impacted by reliability of information exchange across functional roles of the scrum team AND by communication delays due to distribution. In this session, we will understand an approach to measure the globalization effectiveness index of geographically distributed scrum teams and suggest ideas that help to bring the real world distributed scrum teams closer together.

    "It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." - W. Edwards Deming

    Work takes time to flow through an organization and ultimately be deployed to production where it captures value. It’s critical to reduce time-to-production. Software - for many organizations and industries - is a competitive advantage.

    Organizations break their larger software ambitions into smaller, independently deployable, feature -centric batches of work - microservices. In order to reduce the round-trip between stations of work, organizations collapse or consolidate as much of them as possible and automate the rest; developers and operations beget "devops," cloud-based services and platforms (like Cloud Foundry) automate operations work and break down the need for ITIL tickets and change management boards.

    But velocity, for velocity's sake, is dangerous. Microservices invite architectural complexity that few are prepared to address. In this talk, we'll look at how high-performance organizations like Ticketmaster, Alibaba, and Netflix make short work of that complexity with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud.
