Agile Goal Setting - Managing your team members objectives with agility

Did you have your latest annual review lately?  Did you even remember what goals you’ve set for yourself (or that your manager has set for yourself) a year before?  Annual reviews and annual goals have been long known to be a flawed process for assessing your employees performance.  But how can you go from a waterfall annual review to an agile process and a better feedback loop.  In these 45 minutes, the participants will learn about our performance review process and how it helped our employees be more engaged about their goals.

Outline/structure of the Session

During this talk, we will describe our old annual review process.  There were major flaws in this system which we will highlight.  We will then explain how we tried to fix those issues by implementing a more agile process for goal settings and the general review process to give faster and better feedback to employees.  Finally, we will show you the impact that those decisions had in our workplace.

Learning Outcome

By the end of this talk, the attendees will be inspired to abandon their archaic annual review processes and try to implement more modern approaches within their teams.

    Jean-René Rousseau - My Agility is bigger than yours

    Talk
    Intermediate

    The word "Agile" is all over the place now. Discussions are not only about if you are doing it, but mostly about how you are doing it. And in those conversations I often feel people are trying to prove hey are doing better than others.  But when we compare our agility, what do we really whant to know? How can I say that my agility is bigger than yours?

    Over the last 13 years doing  agile software development and specially during the last 8 years as an agile coach I had the chance to explore this question on how to measure the teams and organisational agility through diverse tools and techniques with multiple customers and teammates. During this conference I would like to share with you those experiences and reflect on how to measure your agility. Maybe you should not only look on how you are doing agile development, but more on what is the impact of it!

    In my past life, I worked as a restaurant manager.  As I moved into software development, I’ve come to realize that the restaurant industry is probably one of the most agile world we can imagine.  With a 6 hour project and 2 hours long sprints, a small team manages to deliver to hundreds of customers while keeping each individual interests at heart.  During this talk, I will show you what I’ve learned from my experience in restaurants and how you can apply them in your everyday life as a software development professional to deliver an amazing customer experience.

    According to the Hofstadter's Law, [software development] always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law. We can all relate to this statement but we still continue giving estimates to our customers.  But is it realistic to start working on a software project without actually giving an estimate to our clients? In this talk, we will go through the fundamentals of the #NoEstimates movement and see how it's possible to manage our customer expectations without giving them an initial estimate.
