    Hi Fabrice,

    Thanks for your proposal. Currently, the proposal lacks the required details to make an informed decision. I hope you've read the review process requirements.

    Jean-Pierre Lambert - One week in my agile tester's shoes

    schedule 2 months ago
    Sold Out!
    45 Mins

    We all know what is the job of a tester or QA people: she tests... Specifically, she validates changes, she checks non-regression, plus some other things on the side.

    But what's her job now that the company is all agile and stuff? It seems no one knows, not to mention that she has been integrated into an agile team. How is it possible to do the same stuff than before but now under the tight deadline of a Sprint? Besides everyone is talking about test automation, so do we really still need a tester?

    Why not answer to all these questions by tagging along with an agile tester during a week? During one week, you'll get to see what is the everyday life of an agile tester, what her days are made of, and all the value she's bringing to the team without setting herself as the production environment warden.

    In this session you'll see no dogmatism. You'll witness lifelike situations, shared in a humorous tone.

    You'll see that the agile tester role is very subtle. Unlike what most people might think, the agile tester has a lot of work to do and most teams would gain a lot to have one!

    Fabrice Bloch - The circular design: designing for a sustainable innovation

    90 Mins

    The circular design is the future of innovation and it is IDEO who says it and who carries the project.
    For its creators, it is the natural child of design-thinking and the circular economy, this economy based on reuse and recycling. The design undergoes what the industries have gone through: the time has passed when the product designer created "from scratch" and without worrying about the impacts, we must take into account the existing, environmental footprints, waste that we product, what can be recycled. In this vision, the very concept of product evolves: it is part of a complex ecosystem and a chain of use on the model of food chains. No product dies, everything is transformed. It is a design respectful of its environment, in phase with the major subjects of society, eager to limit the mess it creates. This presentation is an opportunity to understand the underlying principles, the steps and to come out with first ideas of experiments. This is one of the first conferences on the subject.

    Fabrice Bloch - Augmented management

    90 Mins
    How could tomorrow's products be created with the tools, processes and roles of the last century? If the tools evolve exponentially, if the processes adapt themselves jitterily to the shocks induced by digitality or agility, the roles remain largely defined by those created at the beginning of the 20th century, but all those who have been in a managerial position are well aware of this: the managerial lessons do not stand up to the reality on the ground, and the situation at the beginning of the 21st century is not that of the twentieth century 
    Being a manager is not enough anymore, you have to be an increased manager, whom I call Leaders, a defiled word but easy to remember. The proposal made in this presentation revolves around 10 new axis: from "knowing how to have a vision" to "knowing how to train new leaders", we'll talk abour motivation, about delegation, about decision...
    We'll try to extend the notion of management to other modes of thought, to other modes of action, and even to other functions.
