Agile: Transition and Transformations, 10 May 2017, Brussels
At present times, Agile communities are everywhere and the Agile philosophy is being adopted by more and more organisations.  This cooperative, iterative approach to development—or any problem-solving process—that favours multiple, small, rapid releases over fewer large-scale ones is showing stakeholders and unhappy end users how to manage time and money.  The key is to embrace change and focus on customer desires and feedback. All this allows agile businesses to provide almost immediate responses to shifting customer demands.

Stalwart thought leaders and practitioners share their views and “know-how” to transition and transform with different processes and attitudes to change.  The conference thus provides the perfect occasion for delegates to get involved in the conversation, ask questions, learn about best practices and stay together in the Agile initiative, where Agile has its roots in working, sharing and innovating.

  • SAFe

    Keynote: Agile in context: Understanding software systems as ecologies not manufacturing processes

    Dave Snowden, CTO Cognitive Edge

    Too many methods and techniques in software development are simple recipes derived from limited and partially understood cases. They treat the organisation as if it was a complicated machine rather than a highly complex and ever shifting, frequently fragile ecology. This presentation will introduce the award winning Cynefin framework and will introduce ideas from complexity science, biology and the cognitive sciences which allow us to manage conditions of inherent uncertainty.

    Case Study: Agile in research projects – learnings from Big Data program @ BNP Paribas

    Jerome Grandbastien, Agile Coach, BNP Paribas Fortis

    We can all agree that agile practices can fit in many contexts - not just in software development.

    But how about research environment? Can research without software development benefit from agile? Where are the differences or analogies with a software development.

    This talk is about reviewing how agile practices provide benefits in a context of data analytics research - based on field experience at BNP Paribas Fortis in Belgium.

    re.vers.ify (re.imagining your organisation)

    Gunther Verheyen, Scrum Caretaker, Ullizee-Inc

    Any organization can be re-imagined, re.vers.ified, to exploit its intrinsic potential to innovate and lead. Organisations re.imagine their Scrum to converge their product delivery into a Scrum Studio. Divisions dissipate into a structure of product hubs connected through purpose and distributed leadership. Gunther introduces re.vers.ify as an act of simplicity, rhythm and focus. Gunther introduces how the Scrum Studio is the current way forward to re.vers.ify.
