Agile2020 Will Not Move Online

After much reflection, the Agile Alliance Board of Directors has made the very difficult decision that Agile2020 — the largest annual global gathering of Agile practitioners — will not be reshaped into a virtual conference. We are unable to replicate the premier international event for the advancement of Agile software development in an online environment and foster the immersive experience that attendees from more than 50 countries treasure year after year.

Agile2020 Update

The Agile Alliance Board of Directors has unanimously decided that the physical Agile2020 conference cannot take place. Our first priority is the health and safety of all. Our mission has not changed and we are exploring avenues for the Agile community to share the program that has been recently announced. We don’t yet know what that looks like. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this new reality.

LAST Conference Brisbane 2018 – FailAgility: Recognising and Resetting the Agile Boundaries

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.

Here are some Tweets from the keynote:

 

 

 

LAST Conference Canberra 2018 – Mind the Gap: Realising the Value of Agility

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:

Dr. Anita Sengupta to Keynote AATC2017

The AATC2017 program committee is pleased to welcome Dr. Anita Sengupta as the closing keynote speaker for this years conference in Boston. Her keynote ‘Engineering the Red Planet’ will discuss the challenges and out of the box thinking required to explore Mars, a topic she knows a little something about as an engineer on the team that designed the 70-foot parachute that slowed the descent of the Curiosity rover so it could land safely on Mars in 2012!
