    Featured Topics


    • Enterprise Agility

    In a time where the future is becoming harder to predict, enterprise agility and an organization’s ability to re-invent itself are key to survival. It’s time to look beyond the frameworks used for scaling Agile beyond IT and understand the DNA of a successful transformation that leads to sustainable enterprise agility.

    • Environmental Safety

    For some organizations, being more agile is a matter of survival. For others, it’s a way of gaining competitive advantage. Whatever the objectives, such evolution also brings sizeable challenges, especially in terms of the required cultural shift.

    • The Worst Idea That Actually Worked

    Come hear case studies without filters of professional failure stories, great stories about screw ups, blunders, bad ideas that did amazing things, situations where teams or individuals made something new out of an old idea, and stories of when success was found in failure.

    • Radical Innovation

    The stories and discussions are equally applicable to teams doing the work and individuals with the authority to create environments where experimentation can take place.

    • Technical Excellence

    Effective implementation of software development practices requires behavioral changes from those in software development teams, and a change in mindset from people across the organisation. Hear examples of how key components of technical excellence have been introduced and the impact it had on the organisation. Explore ideas on how to upskill in these techniques and to discuss the challenges of implementing them, including the limitations given by the organisational culture.

    • The Leader in You: Share Your Story and Inspire Others

    Hear real stories about real people and how a professional career in agility has changed them as a person. These inspirational sessions are presented by people who offer insight about their own personal agile journey; how they started, how they’ve been changed, what drives them to keep moving, learning and improving, and more.
