    Team's often reflect on how they can work more effectively on a regular basis using Retrospectives. Agile Coaches can help to drive insight on behaviours through coaching and reflecting back what they see. But these are mechanisms that are applied to others.
    Introspection is a personal process that can be applied by yourself, to yourself to provide deep insight into your own perceptions and the freedom to remove deep pain within your life.
    Learning these techniques have changed my life. It is my gift to share them with you, because when you can control yourself fully, you can give your full self to your teams and enrich all those around you.

    Yup, you read that correctly - colonoscopies. A hallmark study by experts in the fields of psychology and economics has strangely strong links to the themes that underpin the Agile Manifesto. In this short talk, I present how basic human psychology - the tendency to obfuscate the initial and distill the terminal - aligns perfectly with a world of work that based on iteration.

    The Agile Mindset is elusive - and gets a bad reputation for being so. Through evidence based research this talk will allow participants to grasp onto the concept of iteration in an innately 'human' way.

    Just what exactly does an Agile Coach do? Coaches may vary in their response to this question. I would like to think that most Agile Coaches, with some variation, would be fairly consistent in how we perceive our role. However, some companies or orgs or people probably interpret the role of the Agile Coach in ways that coaches never intended.

    Let’s explore some of the things that Agile Coaches have been asked to do! Are these antipatterns? Doing what needs to be done? This session will delve into the topic of the role of the Agile Coach and highlight potential challenges and possible solutions.

    Mia Horrigan / Andrew Auld - How to survive the Zombie Scrum Apocalypse

    50 Mins
    Workshop
    Intermediate

    A couple of years ago Christiaan Verwijs and Johannes Schartau coined the term ‘Zombie-Scrum’. What's it all about?

    Well, at first sight Zombie Scrum seems to be normal Scrum. But it lacks a beating heart. The Scrum teams do all the Scrum events but a potential releasable increment is rarely the result of a Sprint. Zombie Scrum teams have a very unambitious definition of what ‘done’ means, and no drive to extend it. They see themselves as a cog in the wheel, unable and unwilling to change anything and have a real impact: I’m only here to code! Zombie Scrum teams show no response to a failed or successful Sprint and also don’t have any intention to improve their situation. Actually nobody cares about this team. The stakeholders have forgotten the existence of this team long time ago.

    Zombie Scrum is Scrum, but without the beating heart of working software and its on the rise. This workshop will help you understand how to recognise the symptoms and cuases of Zombie Scrum and what you can do to get started to combat and treat Zombie-Scrum.Knowing what causes Zombie Scrum might help prevent a further outbreak and prevent the apocalypse

    Why Design Thinking Should Be At The Core Of Your Business Strategy Development

    A primary element of design thinking is simply thinking and ideating on a solution to address a problem or better meet a customer need. Establishing the proper amount of time for truly thinking through the work being done and measuring its merit as a viable solution to solve the challenge at hand is shockingly and overwhelmingly missed a lot of times.

    So how can you implement design thinking in your company? Let’s discuss some of the basics.

    Center on the customer; shake well

    "Of course we know our customer! In fact, we know our customer better than they know themselves!" Really? Then great! You are halfway there. But unlike most businesses, don't fall in to this pitfall of 'thinking' that you know your customer simply because you are an expert!

    Customer-centric is the main word here. When you get them in a room, you may be shocked at how unaware certain functional groups are of the goings-on outside of their own function.

    This can make or break your business - but find out exactly how you can lead your industry in truly knowing your customer.

    Identify and define the problem to form solutions around

    Define the right problem to solve. It’s the assembled team’s job to always question the problem at hand and empathise, in a multitude of ways, with the person’s experience they seek to improve. Try to represent in a visual way the problem or scenario you need solutions developed around. We are visual creatures and the more you can “paint the picture” the better off you’ll be at forming viable and valuable solutions.

    Create many options for the newly defined problem

    Design thinking helps you go about things differently—not solving a problem the same way every time. It’s important that many solutions be ideated no matter what the problem at hand is. Extract ideas from everyone’s mind, but be careful not to overanalyse the thoughts and ideas at the outset.

    Fine-tune selected directions

    Once you have a few good options, they need to be embraced by the group. Don’t let things like what’s happened in the past deter your from pursuing a good idea. Design thinking creates an environment that lets new ideas grow and lets the group experiment without the threat of making mistakes. Sometimes options will need to be combined, refined, etc. Several rounds may be needed to make sure the right answers are being brought forward to solve the problem.

    Pick the winner and execute

    This final stage is where a course of action is selected and resources are allocated to achieve goals.

    I will detail 14 x executable (simple) strategies that you can start doing right now (assuming the execution is done well of course!). Keep in mind this is not a fully instructional piece on design thinking.

    With the guided and evidence-based design thinking approach, I have been able to assist over 50 x start-ups, small businesses and entrepreneurs grow and (in some cases) double their business revenue and scale, simply by working closely with the leaders and decision makers. There is a huge potential to every business and the key lies in identifying and designing a specific strategy(s) to fit your unique skill sets and brand.

    Tune-in and find out how and why design thinking should be at the core of your business strategy development.

    There is so much white noise about agility, and I wonder sometimes if the "Agile Industry" is creating the complexity to grow it's own importance. To me agility, indeed all modern working practices, boil down to three things: Visibility, Transparency, and Team Work. In this session I will cover what each of these three aspects bring to the principles and practices of working in the modern workplace, delivering value for an organisation, and working in high performing teams.

    This session drills into the absolute fundamentals of agility in practical and tangible techniques that allows any team to adopt the practices that will support aligned, collaborative delivery of value. It's from these fundamentals that each organisation can create their own working practices and approaches to support their industry, domain or stakeholder's needs.

    Talk
    Intermediate

    A storm is defined as a disturbance of the atmosphere or the state of an environment and life brings them in many forms and sizes. Some bring significant disruptions to normal conditions, while others destroy the existing structures and force a rebuilding. As humans we will experience various storms throughout our lives with the aim of surviving them all.

    We are so used to the occurrence of storms that preparing for them has become second nature. We have the technology available to us to help predict them, their size and intensity so we know what to expect and plan accordingly. Best practices exist to manage the storms. However with climate change it feels like there are more ‘freak’ one in a 100 year occurrences happening which take everyone by surprise. The best practices lead to chaos. What’s the future going to hold and what can we learn today to in order to build our resilience for future storms? Do we reflect the shifting environment into our existing practices?

    How do we apply these learnings from our life to an Agile transformation of an organisation?

    On the horizon, a cyclone is growing in intensity and heading towards your organisation to disrupt the existing paradigms. Everyone is scared and uncertain of what will survive or need to be rebuilt after the agile transformation has hit. What do we need to do to prepare for the transformation? How are we going to work together to build our resilience in the chaos of the cyclone?

    How do organisations embrace the storm?

    A workshop inspired by the game Monikers where you will form teams and be able to move from a feeling of “We’ll never get this done” to “High fives all round!”. By demonstrating and understanding the value of establishing a common language, leveraging each others strengths, iterating, reflecting and most importantly taking what you have learnt and applying it to your work life. You’ll also laugh a lot and have a heap of fun in the process.

    I have played this game alot, most recently at BOQ as our team formed and again as new team members joined. The existing team members reflect on how hard it would be for a team member to join the game in Round 3 and what they need to do to get new team members up to speed. New team members cut themselves some slack recognising that it will take time and effort from everyone to have them running at the same pace.

    On the final day of the 2013 EPL season, as Liverpool and Manchester City battled for the title, millions of people logged in to watch the matches simultaneously. Sat in an incident room, a small group of tech leaders and engineers watched as their streaming platform crashed and burned under the strain. Your presenter pressed the button to shut people out of the streaming service until we recovered. Cue a lot of angry football fans and (after a stiff drink) a lot of reflection on how this had happened.

    In this short talk I’ll share how, even with seemingly the right ingredients, things can still go horribly wrong. I’ll leave you with the lessons I’ve taken from this to go on to achieve success with agile service management around the world. Disclaimer: you don’t need to be a sports fan to enjoy this talk!
