Andy will be creating large scale, live drawings that capture our talks, panels, speakers and feedback throughout the day so that we have unique, creative memories of our December event and all the wonderful people that helped make it happen.
Have you ever fancied turning your co-workers into laboratory rats and have them scurry around a maze searching for food whilst you ring a bell and the office cat slavers at the mouth?
No? Okay, well we weren't going to tell you how to do that anyway!
What we will share is how to embed a culture of ongoing experimentation that enables your team to learn and adopt new technologies, techniques, and processes - whilst also achieving current objectives.
No animals were harmed in the creation of this workshop.
Do people in your organisation know what is slowing down their lead times? Do your teams understand why sometimes it is better to do nothing than to work?
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to deliver a highly interactive 1 hour learning session for 6 to 18 people yourself. Participants will learn key principles of flow while having fun by making paper boats. They will teach themselves (with your help) about lead time, work in progress, throughput, expedites and local optimisation.
How can you create an environment where all members of a team feel safe to be creative? The best ideas come from embracing group diversity, not silo thinking. I will demonstrate how everyone has the ability to visualise their ideas and how you can welcome the judgement, preferences, and beliefs of all individuals within a working group. Expect high levels of audience participation, collaboration and pen action.

Story-sharing is not a new phenomenon... it predates writing and over the centuries it has enabled us to make sense of our world and to share that understanding with others.
Sharing content and information builds social connectedness and enables greater levels of problem solving and ideation. At the heart of story-sharing is an exchange of information which enables us to learn, build, inspect and adapt. This session will explore how we can inspire greater levels of story sharing as a driver of collaboration and exploit the richness of techniques such as improvisation to enrich our agile ways of working within and across teams and to build products that delight and engage our customers.
Talk - 'Creating 'Awesomeness' Through The Magic of Story Sharing'
After the agile community solved how to do programming, testing, release and product management, the hot topic for our industry today seems to be scaling.
In an ironic twist for a movement started with ‘people over process’, big consultancies today sell scaling models based on everything from tribes to witchcraft, offering to make agile disciplined and safe. Gojko will help you cut through all the mess and separate out signal from noise.
Sustainably is a brand new fintech for social good startup that’s using open banking to revolutionise the way we give to charity.
In this session, we’ll look at how we overcame various challenges by using design systems, user testing and agile methodology to launch the product at pace, and with a limited budget, whilst still keeping the user at the heart.
Design thinking; you have probably tried it, do it or know someone who does.
It has its origins in the 1960’s and had a resurgence in the 00’s. It has become a commodity, with many models and methodologies to choose from. How can we make design thinking EVEN better? With some small tweaks…
dyscalculia, Tourette’s and learning disabilities.
In this talk, Sean and Leena explain that it's not what you think but
how you think that provides new perspectives and more creative
solutions and innovations. Hear about the huge amount of
untapped potential being overlooked by society in general,
become part of a neurodivergent mind and discover how
differently wired brains interact with their environment and the
world around us.
Talk - 'Exploring New Perspectives'
