Imagineering . . . The Science of Cutting Edge Teams, How to Skip Stormin Normin

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to harness the power of cognitive diversity to maximize team outcomes. Designed for adult learning and delivered by engaging co-facilitators, the program’s content is simple to understand, immediately applicable, engaging and entertaining. By using a psychometrically sound instrument, participants will explore the science and seven attributes of thinking and behavioral preferences. These seven attributes include analytical, structural, social and conceptual thinking and expressive, assertive and flexible behaviors. Imagine how a series of purposeful activities can take participants from self-discovery to harnessing the power of team interactions. Participants will find new ways to connect and collaborate for cutting edge teamwork. Participants will learn a common language that will bypass the need for team storming and norming.

Program participants will be given a profile, compliments of IHS Markit and Emergenetics®, which measures thinking and behavioral styles. When using a fierce approach to teamwork, the outcomes will show increased productivity and amplified engagement.

An Emergenetics® profile will be available to the first 100 people that request it, compliments of IHS Markit and Emergenetics®. This will enhance the workshop learning. Send an email to Cathy.Cartwright@ihsmarkit.com to obtain a link to your profile. A drawing will be held at the end of the workshop to win an autographed book.

    There are leadership workshops, peer reviewed literature and TED talks abound recommending that knowing your WHY will make you more successful. It’s in our DNA that we work better, live better, love better when we understand our why.

    In this workshop, you will learn what it is about understanding your Why that makes the difference in your Agile journey and then begin your journey to find your Agile WHY.

    This session is not only for current and aspiring Scrum Masters but also for People Managers, Development Team Members, Product Owners, Project Managers, and Leaders.

    The Scrum Guide defines what is expected of a Scrum Master. When you read it, I bet you react like "that's a piece of cake!" But when you actually do it, many of us come to a realization that it's really, really hard. (That's what happened to me!) The Scrum Master job is hard because much of it has to do with humans, one of the most complex beings in the universe. Humans are intelligent; humans have emotions; and humans are unpredictable. Just going through the motions does not cut it. Even if you approach with the best of your intention, matters could backfire on you anytime. Borrowing "You might be a redneck if..." from a comedian, Jeff Foxworthy, Tomo will present behaviors of a great Scrum Master and those of a "not so good" Scrum Master. Then, he will take you through why the great Scrum Master's behaviors make her great and how they contribute to building a high performing team and helping the organization be more effective and productive. Finally, he will share tips and tricks that help Scrum Masters grow into greatness (for example, powerful questions, 3 levels of listening, facilitation tools & techniques, etc.)!

    This session will give current and aspiring Scrum Masters what to focus on for career development and people in other roles a concrete idea on what qualities to look for in a Scrum Master.

    There will be a handout for participants to take home with.

    Women in Agile started like most movements do, with a problem and a small grassroots effort which was not on the leading edge. Now it has grown to a leading non-profit organization with local groups across the world and many conference pairings under its belt all in a timeframe of a few years. Women in Agile utilized leading-edge MVP/lean startup targeted experiments to determine how to expand meaningfully and sustainably while examining data and experience collected along the way.
    While the need for diversity is nothing new, the way Women in Agile approached the inclusion of new and diverse ideas is! All genders are welcome, included, and valued in participating and learning to be better allies to each other! Women in Agile turns no one away and is different in the way we lead through empowering the community - anyone can start a Women in Agile group, join, and receive support!
    This session discusses how Women in Agile got to where it is today, what is in store for the future, and how you can take our lessons learned to grow organizations and ideas in a successful and sustainable way and get yourself or your community involved in making a change. We will be using the Denver group leaders as a shining example of a thriving group and will examine their unique learnings as part of the session.

    Our knowledge of the human brain is advancing rapidly due to research in neuroscience. There is now good understanding of how our lifestyle choices and the way we interact with others can have a significant impact on our short and long-term health as well as on our brain function. Drawing from the bestselling book of author Scott Halford’s Activate Your Brain: How Understanding Your Brain Can Improve Your Work - and Your Life, which I wrote about at length in a recent article, I examine two factors that impact the chemicals released in the brain, which in turn impact our cognitive abilities. I first look at the impact of diet and the food choices we make every day. I then focus on how working within an Agile context positively impacts the production of hormones including oxytocin, norepinephrine, and dopamine through ways of working that builds trust through collaboration, maintains engagement by breaking up work into small user stories, and results in short-term accomplishments through completion of iteration goals.

    How do you help Scrum Masters grow on their Agile journey? How do you meet them where they are and help them reach new levels?

    Whether you have grown from a Scrum Master to a manager or a manager who is suddenly supervising Scrum Masters instead of ‘project managers’, this is the talk for you.

    Let’s move from “I know a good Scrum Master when I see one!” to a thoughtful evaluation that focuses on continuous improvement of the Scrum Master and their practice.

    Since Agility is a journey of self-realization and building of experience, Scrum Masters need to be evaluated on a continuum across many different criteria. Let’s foster that conversation.

    Scrum 2 SAFe : The 'ART' of the Launch, is a 3 step process in helping people transition from the world of Scrum to SAFe. This approach provides clarity and purpose with the intent of introducing the metaphor of Trains.

    Trains transport people and cargo, with the mission of safe and timely arrivals and departures, i.e. "Running on Time". Do you know anyone who was happy and excited to wait for a late train !? Many of the obstacles of software development were experienced by those building the history of the railroads in America; delays, missed deadlines, production issues, biases, political roadblocks, poor management, disengaged workforce, low quality of work, etc.

    Using the Train Metaphor, Scrum 2 SAFe will provide the following toolkit:

    • Engaging simulation to understand the activities to move from Scrum 2 SAFe
    • Visualization tool to monitor progress of identified activities
    • Visualization tool to monitor progress towards the launch of the ART
    • Immersive ART launch
