Most enterprises struggle with ability to respond quickly to change, get to market faster and innovate. Now more than ever, the ability to respond to change over ‘following a plan’ couldn’t ring truer. Hindsight is 20/20 but none of us could have predicted the unprecedented effect that COVID19 has wrought upon every aspect of our lives. Now we are working from home, readjusting to a "next normal", but all the while living in a state of chaos whilst still ‘keeping the lights on’ in the space of not months or years but in weeks, days and even hours.

Organisations have already had to rapidly change the products or services they ‘traditionally’ brought to market and reinvent themselves at lightning speed to not just stay relevant but to actually survive. How do executives ensure their agile teams remain productive and how do you create a culture that can pivot and adapt to meet market changes? How to create the measures to help you steer when the speed of change is rapid and understand the leading indicators to track to reduce your risk profile.

      Teri Christian - Plan to Win! Electronic Board Game - BETA test

      40 Mins
      Workshop
      Beginner

      The move away from traditional ways of working and thinking to digitalization leads to change in the way we work, learn and measure. It is important to understand how the digital economy has shifted our ways of working in a digital organization from strategy to execution.

      Join us in game play where we will explore Digital Product Management and the Critical Success Factors, Events and Skills needed to create value flow to customers. The original Plan to Win! game was a physical board game. We have now converted it to an electronic game that can be played by any number of people at once all over the world. We would like to beta test this during a session at this conference.

      Have you been working with OKR and wanting to take it to the next level? Then this is for you! After introducing OKRs with 20 odd companies and 2500 people, you make an insane number of mistakes. The good news is you learn a lot about what to do too! So, I've gone through the pain and suffering so that you don't. Here's what we'll cover:

      1. How OKR helps your align your people to focus on your purpose
      2. Tips to make OKR work well for you and common success patterns
      3. Pitfalls to avoid and how to come back from them.

      You'll walk away from this session with strong foundation to revitalise your approach to OKR and make it a "Hell yes!" idea for your team.

      Lousy meetings.

      We have ALL been there.

      And now that most of us are working remotely, it can sometimes seem like our entire 'awake' life is just a series of back-to-back torturous Zoom meetings.

      This session will help participants to learn some short sharp games and techniques to liven up and brighten even the worst of remote meetings.

      Allisyn Ramm / Jason Cameron - How to scale your agile governance processes using Lean Portfolio Management

      40 Mins
      Interactive
      Intermediate

      Has your delivery ever been inhibited by overarching, archaic governance structures & processes? has your organisation missed an opportunity or not capitalised on an opportunity due to the inability or speed to making a decision? Is your organisation still using lengthy business cases which must go through multiple layers of committees for approval? Ever wondered how governance works when scaling agile within an organisation? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this is the session for you.

      In this fun and interactive session, Ally and Jason will talk through the theory and real life examples of how to get the balance between doing things quickly and having the right level of governance using a principles driven approach and concepts such as limiting work in progress, understanding cost of delay and setting up governance structures and process.

      You will come away from this session with an understanding of how to scale your governance processes when scaling agile at your organisation by focusing on:

      • Doing the right things
      • Doing things right
      • Doing things quickly with quality

      Niall McShane - Inner agility; personal development practices for agile practitioners

      40 Mins
      Talk
      Beginner

      Agile values humans and how we experience work. Practitioners of agile are often considered agents of change who lead the way for everyone during times of change. They embody agile.

      BEing agile (as opposed to just DOing) is an important turning point in the career of an agile practitioner; it is the moment you internalise the values of agile and are not longer just executing from guides or playbooks.

      In this presentation I’ll take you through my personal journey as an agile practitioner, how over time, I blended who I am with what I do for a living. It will be personal but hopefully provide attendees motivation and inspiration for their journey towards self-actualisation as an agile practitioner.

      Matthew Hodgson / Mia Horrigan - Measuring Enterprise Agility

      40 Mins
      Talk
      Advanced

      How do you know if you're really agile?

      Numerous industry surveys have shown organisations receive a number of benefits from being agile. Unfortunately, the collection and analysis of empirical evidence is rarely conducted. Without robust empirical measures, many turn to the symbols they can see - measuring velocity, team happiness, and getting teams to "self assess" their capability.

      This talk will give you a playbook to measure agility based on:

      • The empirical evidence and data on what makes an enterprise agile.
      • How you measure an agile culture.
      • The antecedents of agile leadership.
      • How to grow and sustain an agile culture across the enterprise.

      At last year’s last Conference Glenn presented on the Anatomy of a Digitally Transformed organisation. In this year’s presentation Glenn will firstly recap the primary points from last year’s presentation for those who didn’t attend. As requested by feedback from last year, the majority of the presentation will then cover what you need to get these and how do you make it happen? Firstly, this will involve describing the key Enterprise Architecture Artefacts that are required to support successful design and execution of the transformation roadmap. It will then go on to describe how to develop that digital transformation roadmap, ensuring it delivers value early and regularly and most importantly ensuring it is Business Outcomes and Capability driven. Finally, the presentation will wrap up with a case study on a multi-award winning successful Digital Transformation and its outcomes and making the case that done right, this will be the last transformation you’ll ever need as thereafter you will be setup for continuous evolution.

      Jason Cameron / Allisyn Ramm - The best scaling agile framework in the cosmos!

      40 Mins
      Interactive
      Intermediate

      The audience will be invited to participate in a passive debate on which scaling agile framework has the most advantages as a starting point if they had it proposed to them. Armed with just enough detail on each framework, groups will split into break-out rooms based on framework to review the selected framework and teach-back to the audience the answer to the following.

      There is much debate in the agile community on which framework is awesome when it comes to scaling agile so provide content to the following:

      How close to the customer can we stay with the method?

      How do we stay connected as we scale scrum teams?

      How close to the business can we stay as we grow?

      How do we include Ops as we merge silos?

      How do we maintain a potentially releasable sprint outcome with scrum teams supporting multiple platforms?

      How do we keep the customers or business involved at the sprint level?

      How do we keep the essence of fun in the process?

      ...

      The winning group as determined by the audience will be offered a 1:1 or team coach / mentor session!
