KEYNOTE : On the Edge: The Art of High-Impact Leadership
Imagine yourself on the highest mountain in the world. You have to deal with the physiological effects of extreme altitude--along with bone-chilling temperatures, battering winds, and a climbing team that's counting on all of its members to make smart decisions. There's simply no room for poor judgment -- one mistake or misstep can result in an "unrecoverable error." In any situation where lives on are the line or the stakes are exceptionally high--there's no better training ground for leaders than settings where people are pushed beyond their perceived limits. Drawing on her experience as team captain of the first American Women's Everest Expedition, Alison Levine makes a compelling case that the leadership principles that apply in the world of extreme adventure also apply to today's rigorously competitive business environments.

Agile Jesters, Magicians, and Clowns: Using Unexpected Methods to Move Mountains and Your Team
Scrum is excellent at helping surface team and organizational dysfunction, but dealing with dysfunction can be uncomfortable. As an agilist, how do you help your team work through these newly voiced challenges?

Court jesters have a long history of helping give voice to uncomfortable truths, often speaking words that would have others killed. In the 1300's when the French fleet was destroyed by the English at the Battle of Sluys, the French king's jester told him that the English sailors "don't even have the guts to jump into the water like our brave French". This session will help you become an agile jester - speaking difficult truths through humor.

During this workshop you'll get hands-on experience using practical tools drawn from improvisational comedy, the art of magic, and clowning. Every agilist should have these tools in their bag of tricks.

Corporate Innovation: Obstacles & Anti-patterns
Whether it's fear of failure, red tape, or too much business as usual, corporate innovation faces 9 typical obstacles we need to overcome.

We'll cover a ruthlessly simple model for understanding how innovation goes from idea to team to project and what are the typical environment/culture challenges that hinder progress. These are simple equations such as Ideas = Opportunity / Fear. If we want more ideas we can either increase opportunities for inspiration (e.g. 20% time) or reduce the fear of getting fired for being on a "failing" innovation project.

We'll do a hands on brainstorming (many post its required) and then discuss the patterns and see how they are quite common between organizations.

Participants will leave with a map of obstacles that they've helped created and one lucky person will leave with a unicorn crown.

KEYNOTE: Mindset & Culture: At the Heart of a Winning Agile Transformation
Agile is not a process, nor a methodology it is a Mindset. Similarly, an Agile transformation is not about changing processes, systems or tools, it is about transforming the culture. But how? This is the key question that Ahmed Sidky will explore in this talk. Successful transformations ignite a mindset shift across the organization through education and make it known that being agility and having a culture of learning are not nice to haves but rather they are critical to the organization’s survival in the next decades. First, leaders need to craft an inspiring vision that is not only capable of guiding the organization through the transformation but also wins the hearts and minds of people. The sustainability of the transformation is deeply linked to the approach the organization pursues. Sustainable, effective transformations aim to affect all the elements of culture such as leadership styles, cultural values and norms, work structures, reward systems, processes, and at the heart of all of it, the behaviors and habits of people. This is what Ahmed calls a Culture-led Transformation and will contrast this approach to the two common transformation approaches: the organizational-led and process-led approaches. Participants will leave this talk with a step-by step guide to structure their own Culture-led transformations.

Prioritizing? Just stay focused on what’s most important, right? Yeah, this works with errands and laundry.

Agile Transformations: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
Are the majority of agile transformations failing? Succeeding? Just sort of stumbling along? It's really hard to tell. You hear a lot of promises and platitudes from consulting firms specializing in transformations, you read case studies that focus on the good and downplay the bad, and there's a plethora of agile trainers who will certify that you're a master, a professional, or an agile coach in just a few short days. Who do you trust to share with you what's really happening in organizations making these transformations? What's really working? What isn't?
In this talk we will work through the following topics:
o Industry stats "How are agile transformations working in general?"
o Agile transformation anti-patterns
o How organizations get there
o Why they don’t work
o How to get out of them
o Three common agile transformation roadmaps
o Advantages and disadvantages of each
o Case studies for each
o Agile transformation success factors

This session is designed for.
IT and business executives want to learn how to successfully transform their organizations
o Experienced agile team coaches wanting to take it to the next level
o Agile practitioners who want to understand how to help make their transformations successful

Hierarchy, Silos, Self-Organization
Hierarchies are often the default means of organization for most companies. However, heirarchies are also known to make effective decision making and communication awkward and slow. By their very nature, they foster the growth of silos and barriers between groups. Far too many companies fall into the hierarchy trap. How do we get out of it? What are our alternatives and what can we do to find them? In this session we survey the different kinds of organizational alternatives to hierarchy that we have seen. We compare the pros, cons and relative merits of each. By understanding what the options are, we can better understand what works best for our own organizations. Ultimately, agile organizations should represent a much wider diversity of organizational structures. Come learn how we get there.

Team Up to Eradicate Fear from Organizational Culture
Endless meetings, employees' disengagement, blame and a lack of trust. These are just a few symptoms of a culture of fear in organizations. As contagious as smallpox used to be, fear can affect individuals, teams and organizations, significantly reducing their innovation and learning ability.

Let's explore how to use agile games to Stop the fear pandemic! We will start this workshop by learning about the symptoms and the detrimental impact of fear on team's ability to learn and innovate. Then we will experiment with a fear reset exercise that can help you and your team to find ways to reset your fears in 4 simple steps. Throughout the workshop will learn about agile games designed to increase empathy, build connections and practice risk taking in a "safe to fail" setting. Whether you are coming from a conservative company or a startup with experimental mindset, you will find a game (or two) suited for your own game-readiness level. We will experiment with games and techniques to undo the “learned helplessness on an individual level and discuss agile practices that are effective in establishing trust and helping teams navigate conflict. You will learn about Helpful Cassandras, Things That Suck and Kill the Project practices and get to play a round of Fear Eradicated game. The game can be used in a retrospective setting with your teams as well as a tool to facilitate culture change discussions at your Agile Coaching community of practice.
Timeline breakdown:
1. Connection/ Intro - 5 min
( Participants will start with a pair-interviews to complete a "puzzle piece" with questions related to psychological safety)
2. Symptoms and impact of fear - 10 min
Review fear symptoms in the organization and how they can be traced to the "fight-flight-or-freeze" fear response of our brains. Review Ron Westrum's culture model as it applies to the crippling effect of fear on the information flow.
3. Fear rest worksheet with example - 5 min
Participants will experiment framing one of the sample fear and resetting it using the worksheet provided in this workshop.
4. Psychological Safety Enhancers - 10 min
Introduce agile games and various practices (with examples from the real teams) that are effective in increasing safety: practice speaking about feelings, creating team norms, personal maps, measuring psychological safety, having focused retrospectives etc.
5. Fear eradicated game - 20 min
The game will bring together all the concepts covered in this workshop for a round of table discussions/matching game using the fear cards and safety enhancer cards. Debriefing and conclusion will be included in this final part.

KEYNOTE: We are the Leaders We have been Waiting for: Agilists and our Values on the Leading Edge of Human Development
If we Agilists value individuals and interactions over processes and tools, why do processes and tools so often run the show? In this keynote, Lyssa offers two good reasons why she thinks this is so and shows the way out with some solid, but not well known, human technologies. Using eye-opening adult human development models, this keynote lays out the challenging terrain we need to traverse -- which is for us to get good at helping people in organizations develop their mental capabilities, not just change their mind-sets. When this happens, we will be able to help organizations do more than just "talk the talk" about valuing individuals and interactions over processes and tools (as well as fully living into all of the other Agile values). It's a big challenge but we are up for it!  It turns out that our community at large is on the leading edge of adult human development and, if we can develop ourselves, we can help others do the same. It's our time. We are the leaders we have been waiting for. Lyssa will show you why this is so, give you some food-for-thought about your own development and offer practical ways to help develop others so that the full promise of Agile comes true more often.
