Brian Rabon - Traditional Management is Dead: It's Time for the Agile Leadership Revolution

How tightly are you holding on to the 9-5 workday? Job descriptions? Mentoring poor performers? Common traditional leadership practices have been invalidated by the “new economy” and yet we keep doing them to our detriment. Come learn how you can help eradicate these practices and what you can do instead to become a modern Agile leader.

Hubert Smits - How John Deere used Scrum to Transform Innovation

This session will share the amazing results of John Deere’s Scrum for Hardware implementation, including analysis as to why their efforts were so successful. Parts of success which will be covered are the Scrum framework and how it fits within the John Deere product development process, and the role of leadership, management, and workers in the change process.

Robert Annis - The FBI Management Case

Learn how the FBI successfully transformed to Agile processes after multiple Waterfall attempts in a case study that showcases a $300 million transformation of one of its biggest and most critical projects ever.

Too often we are taught theoretical processes that sound great but don’t truly back up the promise with data and experience. This presentation is a case study of how big government failed, failed and then succeeded. You too can you learn from these mistakes and then go forwards and succeed.

Tom Friend - Building Hyper Performance Scrum Teams

Learn Aviation Crew Resource Management (CRM) Techniques to address failures of interpersonal communication, leadership, and decision-making on Scrum teams. 

Peter Measey - Agile is Easy, the Adoption of Agile Isn't

Agile’s easy, but the adoption of Agile isn’t! Having spent 20 years at the front line of Agile adoptions, spanning organisations ranging from small to Enterprise in both the Private and Public sectors, this presentation will highlight some best practices for Agile adoption, including: the importance of understanding the organizational and cultural landscape, how to avoid the common bear traps and how to lay the foundations for a sustainable adoption.

Dan Greening, PhD - Agile Base Patterns: How Agile Are We?

Five simple Agile Base Patterns give us the power to adapt rapidly and win in changing business environments with submarine competitors, surprise regulations, emerging markets and fickle customers. These patterns help us better assess our people, teams and whole organizations, and provide specific direction to improve and become anti-fragile.

Penny Dakhil - From PMP® to Agilista

Are you worried about your career as a Project Manager in an agile world? Are Product Owners and Scrum Masters putting your job at risk? Does being a PMP mean you can’t be Agile? The answer: “It depends.” If you define a successful project as only on time and on budget, then maybe. But for good project managers that hasn’t been true since the Titanic, which was on time and on budget, sank. Every PM I know who is worth their salt has always recognized that their significance is directly tied to the business value their projects deliver. In an Agile world, your title may change but the value you bring to your organization does not.


Talent Triangle: Strategic and Business Management

Manny Gonzalez - Future of Work

Times have changed, and the way corporate leaders think and operate must change with them.  Organizations must innovate, create, and deliver new products – and deliver them often.  The Agile mindset was built on the need to foster innovation and to foster workplaces that breed innovation.  Agile sounds like constant communication and collaboration.  It looks like something we’ve not seen before, but must embrace to survive this new era.

Joel "Thor" Neeb - The Agility of Fighter Pilots, Navy SEALS & Other Elite Forces

In this introduction to FLEX we will introduce an agile methodology called Flawless Execution® leveraging real life stories and high-energy videos.

Angela Johnson- ScrumMaster or Arm Chair Psychologist?

Scrum is simple, but it is not easy.  Getting a team started with Scrum is the easy part.  Due to the transparent nature of Scrum, inevitably the “people stuff” is readily exposed leaving new ScrumMasters saying “Now what do I do”? Join us for this one-hour session to learn pragmatic tips to tackle the people part of your Scrum adoption.

V. Lee Henson - The Four Pillars of Agile

Have you ever tried to take on a large life-changing decision and felt like you were trying to eat an elephant? Where could you possibly begin? What are the best tips to make certain you do not forget a major foundational factor? Prior to any company embarking on an Agile Journey, there need to be four significant steps in place. This session will teach you the importance of Culture, Organization, Process, and Sustainability. 

V. Lee Henson - Agile Implementation

Join us for an adventure as we travel through the mind of Ely, a newly appointed Agile Executive and marvel at his journey as he attempts to construct what Agile means to him and his organization. Learn firsthand what worries, concerns, promises, and dreams Ely creates for his organization. Will he try to learn it all on his own and cause his company great stress in transition? Or will he figure out who can assist in this transition and how? This session debunks the Single Agile Path to success.

David Rico, PhD - Agility by the Numbers

Comprehensive, yet concise overview of agile costs and benefits. Impressive compilation of facts, figures, and statistics concerning agile methods. Begins with the background, motivation, tenets, and mechanics underlying agile performance. Includes data on agile metrics, performance, success, adoption, proliferation, and cases at project, organization, and national level. Closes with a great prescription for agile success.

Jesse Fewell - Big Agile: It's Not Just For Small Projects Anymore

One of the stereotypes of Agile approaches is that they only work for small projects. However, over the last several years, Agile techniques are now being applied to increasingly larger and more complex environments. From the largest telecom in Europe to the largest chip-maker in the world, large organizations are changing the way they do work.

But how is this possible? How does self-organization work for a thousand people? How do programs run without plans? How can a massive solution go to market in a matter of weeks? In this illuminating session, we will explore both a common, repeatable approach and case studies from the real world. Come learn both recent trends and actionable tips for growing out of small Agile to big Agile. 

Michael Nir - The Agile PMO: Practical Value-Driven Change Leadership in Projects and Portfolios

Conclusive research findings show that approximately 50% of PMOs are disbanded in two years. Yet, we repeat the same mistakes in our PMO implementations – wasting money, resources and most important – wasting time. In this presentation we focus on the value driven PMO as an integrator, enabler, differentiator, and change agent in business, development and the organization in general. 


Talent Triangle: Technical Project Management

Hubert Smits - Scrum for Hardware: Concepts & Implementation

Scrum is widely used to develop software of many different kinds. It is not often used to develop hardware, like cars, or photocopiers. In this talk you will learn the concepts and benefits of applying Scrum when developing hardware.

Roger Hutcheson - Blending Concepts for Success

Have you ever finished a Release Planning Meeting thinking everyone understood the features to be built but found out halfway through the third (3) sprint that was not the case? Clearly understood Stories is key to building a solid sprint. Blending Lean UX with Agile Scrum will provide usable techniques to enhance clarity so Agile teams can select stories they understand.  

Susan Parente - Bridging the Gap: Traditional to Agile Project Management

This presentation will translate traditional project management and its processes, as detailed in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), to agile practices. It will discuss methodologies which can be used to assist in bridging the gap between traditional project management and agile project management. 

Kevin Thompson, PhD - Agile Hardware Development

The Scrum framework was originally developed to provide an effective approach for planning, performing, and tracking the development of software products. Our research has identified that Scrum applies equally well to the development of hardware products, including hardware products with embedded or associated software. This presentation provides insight and guidance into how to use Scrum to develop electronic and electro-mechanical hardware. Examples of such products include gas chromatography equipment, mass spectrometers, networking equipment, and many other devices.
