Event description

Description

YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT THE FOLLOWING,

  • Value driven development

  • Agile Leadership

  • Best Practice Guidelines when it comes to Agile Delivery

  • Scrum and a light touch of the Scaled Agile Frameworks

I will start by sharing my two big passions in life,

1. Helping individuals, teams, small and large corporations to Improve process by facilitating fun, interactive, efficient workshops to identify pain points and come up with an actionable plan towards improvement.

2. Helping individuals to improving skiing skills, in the fun and interactive way, by identifying pain points and coming up quickly with an actionable learning plan towards improvement.

Many years ago, while in Lincoln NH, the home of LOON mountain where I have been skiing and teaching skiing for the last 15 years, there was an advertisement on the local channel, where I heard a loud and clear message “THE BETTER YOU GET, THE BETTER IT GETS!”. I wasn’t much of a skier at that point and didn’t have much experience in the high tech world either, but that message stuck with me for years and whenever I learned and improved (regardless of environment), I always remembered the message and nodded to myself in agreement.

There are a few commonalities in both of my passions and I can now say with confidence that I have been able to successfully accomplish both on many occasions in the last decade.

I have decided to challenge myself and COMBINE THE TWO!

I will be hosting a process improvement workshop this winter targeting high tech companies who are embracing Agile way of working but instead of running it in a conference room, it will be hosted ON THE SKI SLOPES!

Agenda:

7:30-8:30 - Quick Overview of the Material and directions for the group exercises

8:30-10:00 - Team activity 1 while skiing with a professional ski instructor

10:00-10:30 - Break (everyone back together or free runs)

10:30-12:00 - Team activity 2 while skiing with a professional ski instructor

12-1:30 - Lunch and Learn, workshop continues

1:30 - 2:30 - Team activity 3 while skiing with a professional ski instructor

2:30-3 - Break (everyone back together or free runs)

3:00-4:00 - Discussion, individual Action Plans formed

4:00-5:00 - Wrap up, additional Q&A, might have to move to the bar :)

Instead of asking the participants to write down their pain points on sticky notes or on a flip chart, they will be asked to go up to the “Buffet of paint points”, which will have ALL THE POSSIBLE PAIN POINTS to select from, each on a seperate piece of paper, laminated, hole punched, weather resistant!

The attendees will be broken into teams based on their skiing ability/interest. Each team will have a professional ski instructor with them while on the slopes. Teams will have short assignments they will have to complete while on chair lifts and during coffee breaks. The session will start with everyone in one place for an opening session and breakfast. Teams will be assigned based on skiing ability/interest. During lunch, everyone will gather again together for a working session (lunch included). The majority of discussion will happen between 2:30 and 4 pm!

This workshop is targeted for individual contributors (Developers, QA, UX, Product…), as well leaders of the high tech organization who are embracing the Agile way of working!
