Toxic behaviours in a Team cause damage to the Team. Affecting their performance, causing high levels of stress and demotivation. Conflict Navigation is one of the biggest challenges within the Teams. Can you help them to overcome this challenge? Are there any antidotes?

When a Team member shows a toxic behaviour, how the Team reacts to it? Can we educate the team and help them as a System to overcome these challenges? As a Scrum Master or a Coach, our main mission is to help out teams to be their better selves. By the end of this workshop, you should be able to help your team to be better prepared to deal with conflict.

    Dan Roman - Memories of an Agile pioneer

    45 Mins

    I started my Agile journey in 1985 when after graduating I had the chance to work in research. We had no idea that what we do is Agile, we just did it. Later I moved from Aided Design and Manufacturing to coding, completing the journey from developer to Development Manager and CTO. Along the way I evolved from "cowboy" developer to more structured and disciplined approaches. My first 'encounter' with formal Agile was in 2001 when I discovered XP. As a Software Development Manager and Later Project and Program Manager I used Agile practices in over 50 projects. I learned that Agile is not a silver bullet and is not easy but is not only an option but an option to survive in a continuous changing world.

    Sebastian Klett - From Waterfall to Agile - The journey of a digital agency

    45 Mins

    Every person working in an agency that delivers digital services or applications to their clients has faced the typical customer that wants a fixed price project delivered yesterday.

    With these kinds of requests, you are facing a situation where two corners of the famous iron triangle are already set in stone but you still have to deliver on your high-quality standards. You are left behind with the question of how will I deliver this project in an agile way?

    This is one of the problems we were facing with our agency when we decided to move from a waterfall to an agile project approach.

    Recent experience with a delivery model that seems to be waterfall to the customer but is still agile following a scrum approach shows the benefits of a hybrid model for both clients and agency.

    I will walk through the process of adopting an agile approach for a digital agency with multiple teams and timezones involved that transitions from a waterfall environment into the agile world.

    A key question: What is the dream behind the complaint?
    Remember that a complaint denies our basic instinct to speak the truth. By reflecting on this question, you can create a shift in perspective and behaviour and move past the complaint, opening the door to share the need that was not met or the hidden dream.
    As coaches, we work and meet teams and individuals who live in constant frustration, constant complaining. Can you help them communicate their needs?
