Endlich findet das Scrum Gathering in Lissabon statt! Nach 2 langen Jahren Pause ist es vom 17.-19. Oktober wieder so weit. Und improuv ist mit einigen Vorträgen, Sessions und dem Panel am Mittwoch dabei:

Jens Coldewey hält zusammen mit Hendrik Esser den Vortrag Before You Learn to Scale, First Learn to Descale Mon Oct 17, 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM

This workshop results from the work of the “Supporting Agile Adoption” initiative of the Agile Alliance. We follow the ideas laid out in our article “How not to Scale” in the “Emergence” magazine to demonstrate the attendees that sustaining agility, team performance and overall organizational success is challenging when the company grows. Similarly, implementing agility in a large-scale organization is a challenge. In this workshop for Scrum Masters, Coaches and Organizational Leaders we explore options to grow beyond more structure, more planning and more bureaucracy by instead focusing on growth of competences and capabilities. Based on many years of experience at Ericsson, Spotify, consulting and academic research we challenge the conventional perceptions and ideas about scaling giving practical advice for how to avoid the common pitfalls on the path of organizational growth.

Zum Thema „Strategy in a Flow – Where Business Agility Begins“ hält Jens am Mittwoch 19. Okt., 3:15 PM – 4:00 PM einen Vortrag

Strategy is a big thing for successful businesses: Every five years you start a large strategy project, call in your favorite strategy consulting firms, and generate the next big Five-Year Plan. Then you break this down to yearly budgets and strategic projects.

Unfortunately, the world is complex and the only thing you know for sure is that it won’t keep stable for the next five years. And yearly budgeting has become one of the major impediments to Business Agility.

Sabine Canditt und Paul Marshall sprechen zum Thema „Sustainable Development: How to Include Agile Manifesto Principle #8 in Agile Training“ Mon Oct 17, 3:30 PM – 4:00 PM 

The Scrum Alliance is “on a mission to create agile workplaces that are joyful, prosperous and sustainable”. As a worldwide provider of certifications, we could use our trainings as a lever to encourage students to take a stand for sustainability. In this talk, I share my experience how this can be done, in trainings for Scrum Masters, Product Owners and Agile Leaders. Participants will have the opportunity to practice one of the examples themselves.

Sabine diskutiert mit Joanne Stone, Kubair Shirazee, Steve Holyer, Ana-Laura Juvino und Lyssa Adkins: Panel: Agile and Our Global Challenges Wed Oct 19, 10:00 AM – 11:45 AM

If Agile is no „accident“ and has emerged at exactly the right time, then what is its purpose in meeting today’s significant challenges and paradigm shifts? This is the question our panelists brought together by industry thought leader, Lyssa Adkins, will help you explore as they share how they are applying agility to address planetary-level issues such as climate change, poverty, responsible economic growth and more.
