Topic:

Leadership is the process of creating an environment in which people become empowered.” - Gerald M. Weinberg

From the Principles behind the Agile Manifesto: "Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done."

Let's explore the possibilities of these leadership ideas, and how one team found their own path of self-organization within an environment where everyone is empowered.

Mob Programming is similar to pair programming but with more folks. I think of it as "All the plaisirdecreer.be brilliant people working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same place, and on the same computer." It might sound a bit extreme, but we have found it to be a powerful way to interact and remain productive and highly effective in a sane and sustainable manner.

I’ll discuss our “real life” experiences, cover some of the challenges, show "how it works", share some benefits, and provide some insights and reflections after doing this for almost 3 years.

Topic:

Science has finally approved it: Forecasting complex projects is cialis price in canada a deception. Moreover, forecasts hinder innovations. Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize Winner in Economic Sciences and psychologist verified in many cases, that forecasting of complex projects is impossible. Yet still, we keep losing time trying to do exactly that. Beyond Budgeting came empirically to the same findings and offers a concept for controlling corporations without budgets. Additionally Beyond Budgeting provides advice for controlling even long-term complex projects. Agile methodologies generally recommend developing a long-term plan on a coarse-grained level only and coming up with detailed short-term plans iteratively. In this talk I want to provide insights in the latest scientific research and show as well how Beyond Budgeting and Agile principles can be combined so that even complex projects remain controllable. Learning objectives: - Understand why forecasting complex projects is impossible - Become acquainted with the core ideas of Beyond Budgeting - Understand how Beyond Budgeting can be applied on Agile projects

Agile teams around the world are trying to find the answers to some burning questions:

  • Should we do Scrum or should we do Kanban?

  • Should you improve in every suggested area teams identify?
  • What’s the minimum level of understanding that needs to buy cheap nolvadex be achieved before pressing forward with improvement efforts?
