  • Steffan Surdek

    Steffan Surdek - Coaching agile teams through narratives

    90 Mins

    Every team has their own story about how they got together, how they are currently working together and where they are going together.  The challenge though is that often, team members each have a slightly different version or understanding of those stories.

    Ever notice how news channels typically use an underlying narrative to drive how they are presenting a breaking story over the course of several days?  Narratives are also useful when coaching software development teams because they stimulate the imagination, provoke hard conversations in a non-threatening way and help teams build a common understanding of where they currently are and where they would like to be as a group.  Through an integral development perspective, this talk will provide participants with some basic tools to build narratives to tell the stories of their team.

    Although having teams build their current and future narratives together is one of the keys to helping them reach the next level, it is not enough to create lasting change on your teams.  The second part of the talk will focus on how to use these narratives to guide and coach teams towards their future narrative.

    This talk is geared towards managers, Scrum Masters, Agile coaches and anyone else interested in learning tools to bring change to a team.

  • Omar Bermudez

    Omar Bermudez - Teams & Responsibility. How can we help them grow?

    60 Mins

    Using The Responsibility Process™ from Dr. C. Avery to build stronger and responsible teams. This process, derived from field studies, shows how all people mentally process thoughts about avoiding or taking responsibility. More of one year ago I started to study this model and I am part of the program The leadership Gift™ (Dr. C. Avery's program). This program allows me to grow as a person and as professional every single day. It also gave me the opportunity to help my teams to shine in a natural way. In this presentation, I will do a presentation of the model and share my experience using it with teams. To help people to understand it and use it, the session will have games and pitfails based in my experience with it
