  • Agile Tour Zurich 2018


  • This no-slide fast-paced introduction to "Agile" takes place before the conference to cover the essentials and launch the day with an Agile mindset!

  • In the year 2218 we don’t say “Agile” in the context of work. Why did people struggle even with the simple concepts 200 years ago? I dug in the dust and found amazing ideas, practices and stories which I will show you in my report. Did you know that 2019 marked what is known as The Big Shift?

  • When working in an organization, inevitably you become “part of the system”. While it is helpful that you understand the intricacies and structures, it is also limiting because you stop seeing the big picture: at some point, you will just be stirring the same old soup and wonder why you no longer have an impact. A retrospective would be in order! But not one for your teams. One just for you and the work you do. Let's retrospect!

    Reflection

  • The manifesto emphasizes that the most efficient and effective method of conveying information is face-to-face dialogue. The main vector we use to communicate is language, and although we speak (generally) the same language, understanding each other is not always that obvious. Through a series of exercises, I'm offering that we explore together an essential component of a good dialogue: listening. Indeed, listening, really listening, is not as easy as you might think! During this workshop, you will get an overview of a method, Clean Language, that helps us improve our communication and relationships. This method is versatile and can be used within a team, with POs to clarify needs, with a client to identify issues, within a team to build trust or overcome a friction.

  • Have you ever thought about applying your Agile knowledge to learn something new? Want to learn how to play an instrument? Want to learn a new language? Want to know how to juggle balls? Archery? Dance? Whatever is the new skill you are willing to learn, believe me: Agile can help you.
    Agile

  • To Scale or Not to Scale? Is that a rhetorical question and if scaling is indeed required? How do we understand if an organisation is ready to look into scaled Agile frameworks? There are plenty of Agile scaling approaches competing each other. How to understand which one suits your organizational context better than the others and will serve the purpose?

    Scaling

  • Have you ever wonder why some of the teams can achieve absolutely anything and the others constantly struggle? The idea of this talk is to present some common patterns & anti-patterns so that the audience can gain more insights into how to build, develop and lead highly performing teams.

  • How can we manage events like reviews, retros and self-organization? – With an attitude of equality. I’ll present some communication tools and explain how they fit into the Agile context. Further, I’ll show how we can pull others into the zone of collaboration through communication on eye-level.

  • What really matters? How can you lead your life, your project or your company according to what really matters? How can you get your stakeholders at work to agree on what to do and why? Personal Agility is a simple, easy-to-use approach to coaching that helps you and those you work with figure out and do more of what really matters.

Some quotes to inspire you:

“People in the Hall of Fame tend to clap their hands and say, ‘OK, I’ve done it all,’ but for me, it was a new beginning.” Jimmy Cliff

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“For a true writer, each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed.” Ernest Hemingway
