Genuinely multi-disciplinary teams
We’re growing used to talking about the importance of autonomous, high performing teams, and of bringing different technical disciplines together. But most organisations are more than their technology, and delivering great services requires organisations’ operations, policy, strategy and other functions to pull in the same direction. Drawing on experiences of bringing together teams across a broad range of disciplines in the UK and globally, James Stewart will look at why now is the time to really think multi-disciplinary and what some of the foundations are for much more inclusive digital work.

Around the world there’s growing interest in Digital Public Infrastructure - the way that governments and societies can build strong digital foundations - and Digital Public Goods that help us share the best practices, standards and code that support it. Together these tools should help solve wicked societal problems like financial inclusion, public services, benefits, etc at scale and speed. Examples from India’s Aadhaar to the Open Banking standards that started in the UK to Brazil’s new payments systems have driven thinking about digital platforms and infrastructure to the top of the agenda of the G20 the UN and many other bodies. Viraj Tyagi of the eGov Foundation and James Stewart of Public Digital will discuss the developments they’re seeing, the importance of the agile community and how the community can connect with the work.

Agile has become domesticated, and it’s time to get back to its complex roots.
At the Cynefin Co, we believe that as development cycles become more complex and time-to-market accelerates, Agile processes and development need to become more adaptive and allow for deeper levels of sense-making and emergence, not less… Meanwhile, some industry players are striving to standardise and dumb down these same processes with one-size-fits all frameworks (usually supported by an easy certification).
This talk picks up on the theme of Rewilding Agile, reflecting on new developments and tools in the past year in the context of a multi-methods, multi-tools ecosystem. Join us and a growing movement of AGILE professionals globally, to explore alternative futures and ways of engaging in our work.
You will leave with an understanding of the concept of Rewilding and how it applies to Agile. This presentation is planned as a companion piece to the Future, Backwards 90-minute workshop also run by Jules Yim, but neither are prerequisites for the other.
Jules Yim - The Future, Backwards – Making Sense of a Range of Possible FuturesJules YimSenior ConsultantCognitive Edge
schedule 2 months agoSold Out!
Join Jules Yim as she facilitates one of the Cynefin Co's most popular workshop methods called the Future, Backwards. Originating from the field of futures and foresight, Future Backwards is a sidecasting technique that helps both homogenous and heterogenous groups of people discuss and make sense of a range of possible futures. It is also effective for lessons learnt, historical analysis, conflict resolution and context setting.
This workshop will focus on Future Backwards to compare and contrast different aspirations as to the present and the future of Agile – how do we see it now, and what futures are possible? This method is interactive, thought- and discussion-provoking, and best of all, fun! You might wonder where the 90 minutes went by the end of it, and you will leave hopefully inspired by shared vision of Agile's future, and for the facilitators amongst you, another engaging workshop method for your repertoire.
