Description

Essential Agile Patterns – Master Class

One of the key challenges for organizations, teams, and individuals who are learning and doing agile approaches to software development to determine – what does “Good” look like?

In this patterns-based workshop, join Bob Galen and guest presenters (Josh Anderson & Mary Thorn) as they explore mature patterns for agile contexts, including:

  • Team & Development dynamics;
  • Quality & Testing dynamics;
  • Organizational dynamics;
  • Transformation dynamics;
  • and Leadership dynamics.

We’ll try to keep all of the bases covered, as we explore our ideas on solid or best practices within agile contexts. But it won’t simply be our ideas. We’ll be leveraging your experiences and stories as well, so please come prepared to discover, listen, learn, and share.

You’ll leave this session with a renewed vision for what mature, high-impact, and solid-outcomes agile practices look like. In other words, a view to “Good” and steps on how to improve towards that goal.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Insights into the keys to effective teamwork and collaboration
  2. What to focus on in the early and latter stages of any agile transformation
  3. The role that leadership plays in successful agile contexts
  4. Insights into different organizational structures that are most effective
  5. Core guardrails that mature agile teams define and implement

Note:

This workshop is a mashup of several ½ day workshops that Bob has developed and presented at national and international conferences. This is simply one examples, that illustrate what we’ll be covering:
