    Agile Kata

    Invoke change in an agile way; not plan-driven. By Incrementor

  • The Conference Rooms

    And the link to how to get to the hotel: https://hotelcasa.nl/location/

  • The Speaker Abstracts

    Jurgen Appelo

    Part 1: Challenge yourself, when Jurgen addresses the question: What comes after Management 3.0, SAFe, Holacracy, and the Spotify Model?

     

    Part 2: unFIX by Jurgen. What is unFIX? Is it a method? Is it a framework? It’s unFIX!

    Jurriaan Kamer

    We’re stuck in agile bureaucracy... but there is hope.

     

    In this keynote, Jurriaan presents examples of organizations that operate beyond the traditional set of agile practices, and have been able to break down the bureaucratic hierarchy by adopting radical forms of consent, participation and self-management. Finally, Jurriaan provides hands-on ways to get started."

    Marc Nieman

    Accelerating Agile: Breaking through corporate gravity. What we can learn from Nasa, Space x and Apollo 13.

     

    The Manifesto came of age this year, turning 21.
    Now it’s time to grow up and take Agile to the next level, truly changing well established corporate cultures and structures! At the same time, we wonder how to progress and succeed on a journey with lots of uncertainties and possibilities. Join this talk to hear from Marc how he believes we could enhance true Agility throughout the world of work using lessons learned from space exploration.

    Dave West

    The future of Agility

     

    The last 2 ½ years has demonstrated the need for governments, organizations, teams and
    people to be more agile. COVID-19 and the associated economic, social and environment
    impact has turned many well-built plans into messy wish lists and impossible targets. Agile has
    become not just a competitive nice to have, but a foundational requirement for success. But
    what is this agile? Is this the same agile as Scrum defined 27+ years ago? Or is it some new agile
    that embraces everyone? In this talk Dave West, CEO of Scrum.org talks about the lessons we
    have learnt from Scrum and how they will provide a foundation to the future of work. He will
    discuss how Lean Startup, Design Thinking coupled with a people centric approach to
    organizational structure will, when aligned to the right customers and outcomes drive to a
    more agile and responsive organization.

    Aswin van Veggel & Tim Wiegel

    Aswin van Veggel (Dutch Police) is Police Chief and Agile advocate at the Dutch Police and he will explain how the Agile movement started in the East Netherland Police Unit.

    Mohamed Nawari

    How do we balance & Align competing needs of Execs and Directors?

     

    ... And part of the answer is to be found through applying Lean Portfolio Management ....

    Gerd Jan van Gils

    I did an agile transformation; now what?

     

    At the closure event of the ASML IT Agile Transformation, Gerd-Jan asked the question: What do we do now? The initial change is done. The buzz is gone and the drivers have other roles. How do you keep the spark of continuous improvement alive in a complex environment?

    Jeroen Blijsie & Josje van Beek

    Workshop

    Business drawing is not just for fun! It is an essential tool to engage people more in team conversations and presentations. Whether it be in a sprint planning, standup or retro, having markers and large sheets of paper at hand is helpful. But how do you draw that one essential picture that captures the key message? In this workshop, Jeroen Blijsie and Josje van Beek take you by the hand with the essentials of drawing for business use.

    Tim Wiegel

    Workshop - Working with Obeya

    day-to-day work and results.

    Amanda Colliander

    The Toyota Kata (@Volvo)

    How do you get to the elusive agile mindset and avoid fake agile? The lean community has brought forward Toyota Kata to address similar challenges within lean. In this session you'll be introduced to Toyota Kata and ideas for using Kata for Agile.

    Joe Krebs

    The Agile Kata

    The Agile Kata is a practice that is built on proven patterns well known in the agile, lean and leadership communities. The Kata intends to provide a language for everyone seeking help with agile transformations, organizational improvement and product teams. If repeated often, the Agile Kata can take organizations to higher levels of business agility and turn them into hyper-performing companies that are transitioning from responding to change to leading change.

    Organizations applying the Agile Kata will notice individual and team empowerment, resulting in higher employee satisfaction and engagement which will in turn foster an agile culture.

    Marc Eelen

    'It’s not that I know better but I do know it could be better.'

     

    My talk is about “The contradiction between Agile working and the rigid banking world.” Rabobank is in a transition. The road to being able to respond quickly to the demand of the customer and the environment has been started a long time ago and more and more parts of the bank are being sucked into this. The new way of working is called S@S, Simplify at Scale. What do you encounter if you have to work in this S@S way as part of the organization, what does that look like and what is the future?

    Saskia Aalberts

    How to help your Agile Team grow - Analysis and the right interventions based on Tuckman's Stages of Development

    As Agile coach, Saskia notices that team development doesn’t happen by itself. Individuals are competent professionals, yet as a team they are ineffective: Every member does its own thing, communication lacks, there are forces at work… By recognizing this and doing effective interventions, the team effectiveness will grow. In this workshop you will experience this theory and then analyze the situation of your own team. So that you are able to help your team grow. As Scrum Master, Agile coach, manager, or simply member of your team.

    Master Class Trainers

    As an organizer, we are committed to assigning a qualified trainer to our classes (preferably Scrum.org, IC Agile Institute and/or SAFe licensed). As all our trainers are of the highest standards, we exercise the right to assign a specific trainer to a class as we deem most appropriate. This means that a last-minute change in trainer may be possible.

      Theme Lunch

      When we get closer to the event, we will contact you to see if you are interested to join a theme lunch with us. We will organize different "theme" tables and this offers you a nice opportunity to meet some other attendees and to discuss your topic of interest.
