    What’s Next For Agile: Strategic Agility

    While most organizations implementing Agile management are still preoccupied with upgrading existing products and services through cost reductions, time savings or quality enhancements for existing customers (i.e. operational Agility), they need to realize that the major financial gains from Agile management will flow from the practices of Strategic Agility, that is, generating innovations that create entirely new markets and that turn non-customers into customers. Strategic Agility is the next frontier of Agile management. Instead of being slightly better than everybody else in a crowded and established field, strategic agility is about creating a new market and dominating it. The profit margins are bigger, and the value to society is often bigger.

    The session will describe what’s involved in achieving strategic agility, including a playbook for systematically generating market-creating innovations and the necessary shift in culture that is required.

    Rethinking Agile Transformation

    «Let go of certainty. The opposite isn't uncertainty. It's openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox.»
    ‒ Tony Schwartz, author of "The Way We're Working Isn't working"

    Sometimes we fall into the trap of thinking the perfect transformational plan will give us certainty.

    Agile - The good, the bad and the ugly

    Agile is changing the way that companies do things around the world. We already know that everything started with agility in the I.T departments long time ago, but now Business Agility is taking over the whole company.

    Despite the power of Agile, there are some risks and drawbacks that people need to understand before the first step is taken.

    Building Networks of High-Performing Teams:
    ‒ What Actually Delivers Agility, Innovation, and Resilience

    Cynefin, a sense of time and place

    The Cynefin framework has been extensively adopted within the Agile community to understand the context in which different methods apply. In its latest ‘liminal’ release the use of boundary conditions has been extended to give better understanding of the role of SCRUM within Agile and the use of constraints, and constraint relaxation to allow for radical innovation. This will be one of the first public presentations of the new version of Cynefin by its creator and will cover subjects as to who to provide better integration with operational and strategic needs within the organisation, breaking the linear approach that characterises most development

    The Agile Environmentalist

    It sounds easy to create an Agile environment for successful change, but it isn’t. In this talk, I’ll explain why we always underestimate the effort to change and then focus on what we can do to resolve that.

    What’s Keeping You From Business Agility?

    It’s hard to successfully respond to new opportunities proposed by the business when you aren’t delivering on the current strategy. Your technology organization isn’t executing on time or on budget because it’s overwhelmed by changing priorities and too many requests for the same resources. The end results? You can’t respond effectively. You’re actually what’s keeping you from business agility? You’ll need to find the courage to create the change. You need mind-set shifts make to achieve true business agility — creating and sustaining the organizational health that helps you embrace change as part of everyday business. But you don’t change your mind-set just by deciding to. You get there through intentional organizational, process and leadership shifts that continuously reinforce the new way of thinking. You get there in five clear steps.

    An iterative approach to Marketing

    While Agile approaches have been yielding massive results in the IT and Software Development fields for decades, the application of Agile outside of IT and to other parts of the business including Agile Marketing can lead to better alignment, common terminology and can lead you toward truly having an Agile organization.

    While Agile has been becoming overly complicated over the last several years, it is time to get back to the essentials at the Heart of Agile to collaborate, deliver, reflect, and improve.

    In this keynote, Alistair Cockburn, co-author of the Agile Manifesto, and Maria Matarelli, co-founder of the Agile Marketing Academy, will share specific insights for how businesses can get back to real results and reach more customers through Marketing in the Heart of Agile.

    Bringing a Business story to Life

    Creative Storyboarding is a powerful business tool, which can be used to aid alignment and stakeholder engagement. Why settle for complex process maps and weighty project plans, when you can express your message in a visual way, that will resonate better with your stakeholders?

    During this talk I will introduce the benefits of storyboarding as a clear and captivating tool that you can present a business need and solve a customer problem in a truly powerful way.

    S.R.E. - Bringing Reliability, Automation and Scalability to the People

    SRE stands for Site Reliability Engineering. A word crafted by Google in 2003 when Ben Treynor was hired to lead a team of seven software engineers to run a production environment. Managing such large systems with sizes never seen and still merging new features seamlessly was an huge challenge.

    In this session we are going to give examples and inspire change for individuals and companies that are under pressure of repetitive work or seeking innovation in the engineering field. Create incident response automation, self-healing, bring feedback in and break down silos that are impediments to an healthy growth and experimentation.

    You Can’t Spell DevOps without Dev

    It is not uncommon to hear organizations say that their customers don’t want new versions of their applications more frequently that once or twice a year. This usually means that sometime in the past the customer was shipped an update that was broken; one that had less value than the previous.

    We don’t have to ship defects to our customers very many times before they become distrustful of our new releases.

    Current market forces are pushing us to release more frequently. This imperative has led to the creation of new ways of working, such as Agile Software Development and DevOps.

    To have the confidence to deploy our applications weekly, daily, hourly, we must know that we are building features our customers want, that those features work, and that we didn’t break anything else. In this talk, one of the pioneers of Extreme Programming, will discuss the technical practices required to regularly deliver new functionality that our customers want and nothing that breaks features they are relying on.

    Heroku in Python

    You have an idea for an app. It’s going to be amazing! Of course you want to build it right. But you have to get it out there fast. You need to use an agile, lean startup approach, with all the benefits of devops. And it needs to grow quickly and iteratively. The big problem is that your full staff accounts to one person… you.

    In this entertaining session, you will learn how to make your app dreams come true. Using the python software language, GitHub and Heroku, Bryan will demonstrate a simple way to quickly iterate on your ideas, moving code through tests and deploying to production.

    Scrum to the Stars: Cubesat Project

    In this class you will learn how Scrum can be applied to the design and construction of products.

    Scrum has been used for over 2 decades in software development with an impressive increase in productivity. Many companies looking for a boost in productivity have applied agile principles and practices to building physical products like airplanes, tractors, and cars. In this class you will be introduced to how Agile works in product development.

    This class is different because we will be demonstrating agile in hardware with a simulation exercise. This simulation is building a CubeSat and planning the operation support using Scrum all while constantly adapting to a set of changing requirements. We will take your team from mission concept through planning, build, blastoff, and beyond.

    In this 1/2 day class, you will learn to apply the scrum framework to hardware product development. From defining what it is and how it works, you will also participate in exercises designed to help your team experience how Scrum, and other agile practices are applied to building physical products.

    Bring you team, friends, family, neighbors, who ever is important to you and start creating a common sense of collaboration and communication to take you to the stars.
