11:30am to 12:20pm
During the past 6 years I have spent most of my time working with teams and organizations that aspire to become more Agile and Lean. I have done that in a variety of settings and helped anything from small fast moving startups to big bureaucratic organizations. I have taken on the role as Scrum Master, Product Owner, Mentor, Coach and Trainer and faced challenging situations, successes and failures working on every layer of the organization from team level to top management.
In this session I will share my personal Agile journey. From my first encounter with Extreme Programming at university, through experiences with Scrum, Lean and Kanban. A journey that has taken me from having great success implementing Scrum and a growing belief that Scrum was the one silver bullet to rule them all, to an identity crisis when my religion came crashing down on me. From rebelling against Scrum as local optimization, batch thinking and cargo cult religion when discovering Lean and Kanban principles, before new experiences and success with Scrum and “Scrumban” forced me to realize that the world is not black and white, either or.
So come join me on a journey of self discovery, “teenage” rebellion and a frustrating world of IT that refuses to be put into context free boxes.
