Keynote: Shut Up and Play Ya Guitar

Description: History repeats itself in the form of people once again addicted to process. Ground hog day thinking calls for a renaissance of agility. We need to draw from the past as we reinvent the future. More value lies in intentional and contextual selection of the many tools in the agile community. Many people are striving to “do the process” or practice “pure Agile”, working under the named (or unnamed) assumption that following a process will lead to success. It is time to replace process thinking with outcome based thinking. Leading adoption of new tools and ideas by naming the expected outcomes helps people work toward success that is contextually significant and shows real value and promotes meaningful learning. Intentional agility is the source of our renaissance of agility, blindly following empty rituals will lead us back into the Dark Ages of software development (or lack thereof).

Coaching is More than Telling People What to Do

Once upon a time, the idea of a team coach did not really exist. Today, many people are coaching but many are confused. This session will speak to and challenge the most common questions I hear on a daily basis: How is an agile “coach” the same or different than a scrum master or technical lead? What’s the role of an agile coach and how is it the same or different than a project manager? Does an agile coach focus only on the dev team or do they get involved with coaching product owners and testers too? What does an agile coach do besides running meetings?
