Business Agility (Shane Hastie, Evan Leybourn)
Limited Capacity filling up


Abstract:
Business Agility has become a buzzword, but what does it really mean and why does it matter? Evan and Shane explore the why, what and some of the how behind the move to take the ideas from the agile manifesto and agile product development and apply them in broader organisational contexts. What does it mean to be agile in Finance or HR, for instance; what is the impact on leadership when everyone in the organisation is empowered and self-organizing (and should they be)?

Learning Outcomes:
  • What it means to be agile in Finance or HR
  • The impact on leadership

Is our Past a Prologue for a Post-Bureaucratic Agile Management Revolution? (Sanjiv Augustine)
Limited Capacity seats available

Abstract:

As the agile movement closes in on two decades, we have much to celebrate: team based agile is the software development norm across the world, adoption of scaled agile methods is growing as well, and business agility is now a thing. In this Age of Agile where we seek to apply agile principles and practices to entire enterprises, can our past be prologue for an amazing future Agile Management revolution?
If so, how can we extend agile from IT teams across business units end-to-end? How can these end-to-end teams operate as platforms for creativity and innovation? How can we unfreeze the middle management layer in our bureaucracies to unleash a post-bureaucratic management revolution? How can executives set organizational clarity and build professional capability to lead us with confidence into an uncertain future? How can these innovations help us raise employee engagement from abysmal depths to soaring heights not just on agile IT teams but across the board? Come join this conversation based session on Agile Management to explore answers to these questions and more. I'm excited to share my thoughts and learn from others as well in our shared agile journey.

Being an Agile Leader is Challenging AND Completely Worth it Lets talk (Tricia Broderick)

Abstract:
Tricia Broderick is no stranger to sharing the good, bad and even the ugly when it comes to leading amazing teams. As a member of the Agile Alliance community since 2007, she has been able to apply many of the conference learnings ? sometimes wildly successfully and sometimes, well let?s just say with train wreck results. This means this session is a judgement free zone of the highs and lows to leadership. No question is off limits ? what skills you need, what habits you have to change, how to deal with existing expectations (status reports!) and processes, what the potential rewards are, biggest challenges, biggest wins?
You ask, we?ll talk.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Stalwarts session - Q/A of speaker

Assessing the obstacles to agility through UNLEARNING. (Jessie Shternshus)
Limited Capacity seats available


Abstract:
We are constantly challenged by the need to change in order to remain competitive. Individuals must shift their habits, teams have to adjust their behaviors, and organizations must update their mindsets. As our access to knowledge becomes easier, it is also getting obsolete at a faster pace. It becomes apparent that in order to learn something new, we need to first get rid of - or, unlearn - something old; and the best way to make shifts is through interactive learning.
