Our tech community events provide a social platform for continuous learning outside the workplace
The future world of work is now. Flexible working...what does the future hold after nearly a year of enforced remote working? will we "snap back" or will we forever be working from our bedrooms or a mixture? How does location, technology, policy, strategy, values affect our ability to effectively collaborate? What does this do for team morale, togetherness and our own wellbeing? In this interactive session we will explore some examples, reflect on our own ambitions and needs and look at some helpful tools and tips. The world of work is changing and we can influence and lead the change in our teams.
Why did that work take longer than expected? What’s the best way to deliver this new thing we’ve got? Why did that initiative sprout legs and run around? In this talk, we’ll be diving into the world of Complexity Theory and how teams have been using it to understand the nature of work, increase confidence in forecasts and better manage risk. We’ll demonstrate how to bring delivery frameworks, tools and professions together, all with real-world examples. You’ll see how Discovery and Delivery can be knitted together by asking better questions, respecting heuristics and promoting a culture of learning.
We can coach in different ways, and some ways are better than others at communicating the Agile mindset. In this workshop we'll look at a "Solution Focused" coaching approach that fits beautifully with the Agile Manifesto values and principles. We'll explore what it is, how it fits with Agile, how it communicates the Agile Mindset - and most importantly, experience it in action. Roy will facilitate the workshop, and Chris will illustrate the approach by presenting a case study (a retro which resulted in, by one measure, 14x more agility!)
