Hugo Lourenço is the Founder and Chairman of the Conference and DevOps Forum.

The conference started in 2014 with the name Scrum Club and then evolved to Scrumday Portugal. This year we renamed to Experience Agile because it’s not juts about Scrum, Kanban, Lean, DevOps or any other practices, is about experience, which by the way is the first thing to do in a complex environment – eXperience.

Also this year we have started the next step of the founder vision, the ‘World Agility Forum’. Its a gala dinner with the goal to recognise the people and companies who’ve started their journey to ‘Improve Through People’.

Thank you and we hope you have a great conference and workshops.

Abstract:

Wave 2 of Agile is a way to understand the high-performance results that come from Being Agile. We know many in our industry have fallen into the trap or “Doing Agile” – where people lose sight of the objectives and lasting results.

Wave 2 is about Living Agile. It is how we show up. It is how we work with people and organizations to shape the Culture. It is living Mahatma Gandhi’s truth:

“Be the change that you want to see in the world”.

When we focus on our own behaviour, we model Being Agile. This is the only way to invite the Agile Mindset. This is Wave 2 Agile. We stop creating conflict and resistance. We become the effective leaders and influencers of lasting change in our organizations.

“To be or not to be? That is the question.”

  • Steps to becoming a more effective change maker
  • Key tips to have a successful Agile Transformation
  • See how our own activities and actions are causing resistance around us

We have a problem in our organizations. We think in projects. The very first taste of agile in an organization usually comes from a project that is delivered using agile. We love it and we repeat it, we use agile project after project. We forget about one of the fundamental agile rules: to discover better ways.
I am on the quest to take my teams to the next better way. Let’s start thinking, speaking, drawing and dreaming in Products. First we need to understand what our Product is.
Come to this session and let’s explore this question together. I have worked with many agile teams that are unable to give a clear answer to this question, although they have worked together for more than 1 year. You don’t have to wait that long!

Understanding how men and women see the workplace differently can help you leverage their strengths to lead your organization.  Over the years, one of the questions I am often asked is: “How do you handle being a woman in technology in a global organization?” In this session, learn why women are successful in leadership roles in global organizations and some of my tips for success.  Understand the barriers women face and how you can support their growth.

Picking the right question, or reframing an issue with a question, can introduce a profound shift in the way an organization goes about adopting the Agile mindset.  Ask the wrong set of questions often enough and eventually dialogue around Agile adoption will wither and die.  In this short talk, Carlton Nettleton will discuss how to create your own powerful questions that create positive energy, unleash creativity and deliver the forward momentum necessary to support the adoption of the Agile mindset.

Has Agile become a commodity?  Has it fallen into peddling (sic) process and tools over individuals and interactions, simply a convenient label?  Can Agile scale to as wider organisational agility and is so what will have to change? Does the 1960’s hit song for the Kinks (our title) satirising the fashion industry apply equally to what Martin Fowler (one of the manifesto signatories) has called the “Agile Industrial Complex”, a “no-innovation zone”?

Do you think that some Scrum Masters just “have it” and maybe you don’t?  Do you sometimes feel paralyzed when confronted with the complex behaviors and issues on your team?  Or, are you a team member and wonder, “What is this Scrum Master person supposed to do, really?”
 
After working with thousands of Scrum Masters and agile coaches, I can tell you that almost everyone has these thoughts and that great Scrum Masters are grown, not born.  They are forged in the cauldron of this very challenging and rewarding work.  And, the best of them overcome their worries and limitations when they take themselves on a conscious path of growth – step-by-step becoming the Scrum Master their team and organization needs.
 
In this keynote, we will explore the “must have” skills of great Scrum Masters/Agile Coaches and chart a development path you, team members and managers can use to consciously create the level of Agile Coaching competence your organization truly needs.
