Much has changed since the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001.

Pioneers and practitioners of lean and agile methods have examined weaknesses and friction points, experimented with simpler approaches, and produced agile processes that are safer, simpler and far more capital efficient. The result is modern agile. It’s values-driven, non-prescriptive and an easier starting point than antiquated agile processes. Modern agile amplifies the values and practices of organizations that have discovered better ways of achieving awesome outcomes. Are you still cramming low-quality work in the end of each sprint, struggling with growing technical debt, guessing about requirements, focusing on output over outcomes.



Learning Outcome

In this 1-day workshop, you will learn to deliver awesome results by:

  • experiencing how the four principles of modern agile guide decisions,
  • increasing safety in your culture, code and products,
  • identifying friction points and simplify your process,
  • engage the entire team to continually uncover better ways of working.

Target Audience

Software engineers, technical leaders, scrum masters, agile coaches and anyone with an interest in modern approaches to agility.

    Julie Amundson - Machines that Learn Through Action: The Future of AI

    50 Mins

    Deep Learning has led to breakthroughs in many previously unsolved problem domains, from image classification to machine translation to medical imaging analysis. Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz recently cooked up an AI playbook, which posits that AI will impact software as broadly as relational databases have since the late 20th century. It’s hard to think of a technological problem that AI doesn’t touch.

    In this talk, we will explore the limits of today’s most popular approaches to AI. In particular, what kinds of problems can’t we solve today and how might the solutions shape the way we approach software development? Training a model for your particular domain is easier than ever, but why is it so difficult to make sense of what is going on inside the model? How can we move toward a more intuitive and accessible model for understanding what our AI has learned?

    Genuine agility is enormously effective in helping us achieve our dreams. The trouble is, Agile has grown into a complex tangle of roles and rituals, frameworks and tools, processes and certifications. We need a return to simplicity. Modern Agile is here to help.

    Designed for people in many domains (not just IT), Modern Agile is defined by four guiding principles:

    • Make People Awesome
    • Make Safety a Prerequisite
    • Experiment & Learn Rapidly
    • Deliver Value Continuously

    Understanding and deeply practicing these four principles will help you get better results faster.

    In this talk I’ll share how these four principles power world-famous companies and how they can help you work with greater speed, simplicity, safety and success.
