  • How to facilitate leadership participation for an Agile transformation
    How to facilitate leadership participation for an Agile transformation Joe Vallone, Scaled Agile Inc. Recorded: Apr 12 2017 44 mins
    Are you frustrated with leadership wanting to delegate the Agile transformation and not getting involved? Come to this talk and learn about new ways to facilitate leadership engagement, not just buy-in. Learn how to form an Agile Leadership Scrum or Kanban team, where leadership will understand that they are responsible for the success or failure of the Agile transformation.

    As Edwards Deming once said, “It is not enough that top management commit themselves for life to quality and productivity. They must know what it is that they are committed to that is, what they must do. These obligations cannot be delegated.”

    Thus, leaders must understand what it is they must do and what they are committing to for an Agile transformation to be successful.

    There is something for every Agilist in this talk. Leaders will learn a new paradigm for Lean and Agile thinking and understand how they can actively lead an Agile transformation. Agile coaches will gain new tools and techniques for engaging leaders to build a significantly powerful guiding coalition for the transformation. Agile team members will learn how to leverage leadership support to quickly resolve impediments, as well as increase transparency, and coordination.

    Attendees will learn:

    - Creating leadership participation in a Scrum or Kanban team to lead the Agile transformation
    - Overcoming impediments to change management (e.g. leaders don't have time to participate)
    - How to coach leaders to think in terms of Lean and Agile leadership
    - Measuring Agile transformation success at the leadership level and understanding the return on investment
    - Sustaining the change culture so leaders will continue to participate

  • PMO in the agile world: Aligning your Org from strategy through execution
    PMO in the agile world: Aligning your Org from strategy through execution Laureen Knudsen, CA Agile Adviser Recorded: Apr 12 2017 53 mins
    We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: we believe that agile for the business is the key to building a thriving corporation in a fast-paced, competitive world. Business Agility is what helps you prioritize, fund, and commit to the right work, removes blocks so teams are faster and more productive, and allows you to trace, day-to-day, how your teams are delivering against plans.

    It starts with market analysis, strategy and product management, and finishes with steering, releasing, and monitoring what is in the market. This session will provide techniques on how to manage through this entire process. You’ll learn:

    • Why it's vital that you have the right market analysis as a base to your strategic decisions

    • How to align around the same goals and strategy

    • Why you need to track the “Big Data” within your company as much as you track your customers

    • How to distill your strategy into backlogs, releases and sprints
  • Struggle Between Agile and Project Management
    Struggle Between Agile and Project Management Rick Morris, R2 Consulting, LLC Recorded: Apr 12 2017 48 mins
    Agile is not a fad, it is a reality. In today’s application economy almost every company is a software company. One of the biggest misconceptions is that Agile is new. However, there is a struggle that seems to be happening between the understanding of the Agile world and the Project Management world. What does it mean to be Agile? If we are an Agile company, do we need Project Management? Is one better than the other? Can the two exist with each other?

    As organizations are looking to eliminate the barrier between ideas and outcomes the impacts of how to prioritize, execute, allocate funding and resources, and embrace change amplify the need to understand the roles and responsibilities of everyone.

    Join Rick Morris, a certified Scrum Agile Master, consultant, best-selling author, mentor, and evangelist for project management as he shares his real life experiences and even how his own thinking has been transformed in what will be an entertaining, enlightening, and lively discussion.

    How to Transform Meetings and Dramatically Improve Business Outcomes Rick Lansky, Co-founder, Instant Agenda (CA Accelerator), CA Technologies & Michael Ball-Marian,Co-founder ,Instant Agenda Recorded: Apr 12 2017 47 mins
    We're wasting 15% of our at-work time and we're almost completely ignoring it.
    Most of us hate meetings. At best, meetings are considered a necessary evil. If the meetings are so terrible, why not stop them? If they are so necessary, lets make them highly effective!

    We’ve spent billions over the past several decades to improve the agility and effectiveness of our development practices and management. As knowledge workers, we spend over 30% of our time in meetings. Surveys show 50% or more of that time is wasted. Why have we virtually ignored meetings as a target for transformation and agility? We'll demonstrate how to dramatically improve business outcomes across your entire organization by applying Agile principles and practices to your meetings.
