Presentation: "Using the philosophy of Tai-Chi to deal with the agile pendular within HolidayCheck"

A session at GOTO Zurich 2013

Wednesday 10th April, 2013

3:50pm to 4:40pm (CET)

Introducing agile principles and methods within a team requires the knowledge of the methodology and processes. To grow the agile understanding within a company requires the knowledge about leaders, politics and the various influencing elements of the daily business. This talk will cover how HolidayCheck is dealing with the formal requirements of a public listed company and improving its agile skills and knowledge at the same time. The continuesly ongoing flow of changes, e.g. the more or less control from management, organizational changes and training of individuals, requires the smooth and calm actions and re-actions like a Tai-Chi figther is using it.

We will also speak about reasons why scaling Scrum isn't that easy as the existing frameworks might make you believe and what happens if you need to change your management to understand that the performance review of an individual is not done by you as a manager.

At the end of the talk you will know about the various steps HolidayCheck did so far and what we are going to do next. I will give you some ideas what you can influence and what to watch at during the process. Last but not least you will learn how I'm using trainings such as the Management 3.0 or other individual coaching to educate the whole organization step by step.
