From dysfunction to cross-function in 8,593 easy steps: Team building at the CBC
When it comes to scaling Agile, there is no one size fits all solution. Frameworks like Scrum and XP prescribe roles, events, artifacts, and rules that make it very clear how interaction should take place within a team. When we begin to add more teams to the mix, communication between teams becomes more complex. This complexity threatens to reduce our transparency and damage our culture. How can we share information, build our culture and work together, all while keeping with Agile values?
During this session Sam Lightowler and Jade Stephen will take an in depth look at the successes and failures of CBC Digital Operations when it comes to cross-team collaboration and information sharing. We will discuss what meetings and techniques have helped us build a one-team-one-product mindset, a sense of community, and a culture of Collaboration, Learning and Improvement. We will also discuss what we have tried in the past and how learning from those experiments helped us evolve into the agile-friendly and unified team that we are today.

My experience report is based on many years of collaborating with PEOPLE....and learning how to really collaborate better.
Being authentic is a place I dial into when I am true to myself. It's about the choice to show up and be real. This allows vulnerability to be present and it's a choice we can make every day.
I call it being honest - with ourselves and with others.
This experience report will step beyond traditional Agile Values ... and share what I discovered with clients, global organizations and the United Nations - the presentation/experience report has (ups and downs) -
Let's explore useful learnings about agile and human techniques to help participants gain insight and develop important skills with the people and the teams you encounter - let's explore wellbeing!
I was at Agile2016 in Atlanta to present this year an experience report about Agile Marketing - the most important outcome from this conference for me - was the number of people who wanted to talk to me after my presentation about:
Vulnerability, happiness, trusting ourselves, wellbeing, speed to market and how to talk to clients, clients -clients!!
This talk is centered around client servicing, client solution making, relationship development stages and collaborative drivers.
Marie-Christine’s personal hands on client experience and project management will provide participants a unique outlook on process, and discover how to bridge the gap between PEOLE (client, executives, stakeholders, teams) and the business. It’s a fundamental shift in mindset. Instead of focusing on what you can sell or deliver, the focus is shifted to what are the needs while leveraging rapid iterations for maximum output and trust.
Few of us consciously choose vulnerability.
Why? The stakes are too high.
