My keynote presentation with Tony Ponton from the LAST Conference 2018 in Brisbane called “FailAgility: Recognising and Resetting the Agile Boundaries” is available on Slideshare.
FailAgility; we have all seen it and let’s face it, we are all guilty of letting it happen in our organisations. So why is it that so many businesses fail to see the outcomes that the Agile values and principles promise?
This presentation looks at what FailAgility is and the three levels in organisations where it stems from: Organisation, Leadership and the Coaching / Personal level.
We will discuss the types of FailAgility that we see at these different levels, the approaches that cause FailAgility and most importantly what we can do to recognise and fix it.

My presentation from the LAST Conference 2018 in Canberra called “Mind the Gap: Realising the Value of Agility” is available on Slideshare. Huge thanks to John Connolly for inviting me to be part of the program!
Agile has well and truly crossed the chasm and every organisation large or small seems to be in the middle of some sort of Agile transformation. Yet, look behind the covers and we have to ask ourselves the tough question of how well we are doing and how agile are we really?
So all aboard as we acknowledge some of gaps many organisations are facing and we question the true value we are delivering. More importantly, we will discuss how we might start to these issues, both inside our organisations and as individuals flying the agile flag.
Here are some of the Tweets from the talk as well:
My presentation from the itSMF NT Q1 Meeting in Darwin, Northern Territory called “40 Agile Methods in 40 Minutes” is available on Slideshare.
With 73% of the world using Scrum as their predominant Agile method, which has a direct impact on service management, this session will open up your eyes to the many other Agile and edgy Agile methods and movements in the world today. For many, Agile is a toolbox of potential methods, practices and techniques, and like any good toolbox it is often more about using the right tool for the problem that will result in meaningful results. You may also be surprised about how many methods have a direct relation or reliance on service management as well as the wider organisational structure and culture. So let’s take a rapid journey into the world of methods like Mikado, Nonban, Vanguard and movements like Holocracy, Drive and Stoos where we will uncover 40 methods and movements in 40 minutes to help strengthen your understanding and toolbox.
It was an honour to be invited to Darwin to present this talk to the Darwin tech community who are a small but extremely passionate community. Here are some photos:
