Using Jurgen Appelo's Management 3.0 to build better teams

World of work has broken.  According to Gallup in a study conducted worldwide between 2011-2012 - only 13% of employees working for an organisation are involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work and workplace. 

I'll explain why our current standard patterns in management are no longer good enough, and what we can do differently and better.  I will showcase a number of modern modern management techniques - popularised by Jurgen Appelo and Management 3.0 - that are fundamentally aligned with lean and agile principles.  These will help you get better engagement, better teamwork and make management an easier job.

You will walk away with a number of simple techniques you can use to help initiate teams or projects; change the level of conversation that you will with your peers and team members; and give you a way to build happier teams.

    In the 1850s, Edward Orange Wildman Whitehouse was appointed the lead engineer of the first attempt to build a trans-Atlantic telegraph cable. With the entire population of two continents waiting for his go-live, their handlebar moustaches aquiver, he demonstrated in fine form just how spectacularly a big project can be a bigger disaster.

    This is a tale of long-winded rants, spectacular sideburns, and gentlemen scientists behaving badly. It is also a lesson about the importance of honest reflection in technical teamwork. Lilly outlines some of the mistakes made during one of the biggest tech delivery projects in history, and how a constructive view of failure helped to turn it all around. Through the public meltdowns of Wildman Whitehouse you will learn the importance of feedback, how to handle complex tasks gracefully, and the best way to recover from having your pipeline eaten by a whale.

    Any journey is a combination of planning, expectation, experiences, conversations, and knowledge gained.  The metrics journey that this Enterprise Agile Coach and experienced Release Train Engineer have travelled has all of this and more!  And many travelers like to have a copy of their Travel Guide to hand to not only plan their experiences but to help them manage some of the intricacies of their journey.  Consider this talk your opportunity to dip into an expedition through the wilds of agile metrics – with a cheat sheet.

    This presentation will cover:

    • Where am I?  Context is king.  Knowing your starting point is key.  Baseline metrics.
    • Who’s on the journey?  Knowing your audience, who else is on the journey with you and what are their expectations. Agile vs Waterfall PMO. Internal vs External metrics
    • What could go wrong?  Being clear about the challenges for metrics at scale
    • Metrics as your compass.  Using metrics to help identify changes in direction

    We started our metrics journey with different goals in mind and have uncovered some surprising aspects in what works and in particular what doesnt!  In this presentation they weave their expectations, experience and knowledge to show how these perspectives can meet.

    Everyone has faced this issue before when working in an agency, you got a customer which desperately needs a fixed budget and time to deliver an urgent project. Two corners of the iron triangle are fixed but you still have to deliver on your high-quality standards. You are left behind with the question how will I deliver this project in an agile way? 

    Many customers of digital agencies have not heard or adapted their processes, their organisation or management for this kind of delivery.

    Recent experience with a delivery model that seems to be waterfall to the customer but is still agile following a scrum approach shows the benefits of a hybrid model for both clients and agency.

    I will walk through the process of adapting an agile approach for a digital agency that transitions from a waterfall environment into the agile world.
