Invited talk: Actionable agile tools
Of course Agile is more a way of thinking than it is a particular tool or practice, but sometimes you simply have a problem you need to solve and getting a starting point will make a big difference. That is the purpose of this talk and the book it is based on: Actionable Agile Tools.
Most of these tools are very simple and can be implemented in less time than it takes to hear about them. Many of these tools were developed incrementally within teams I worked with, some literally taking years and exposure to a variety of organisations to reach their current state.
If you want to see a few handy things that will be usable to you directly when you get back to work, then this is the talk for you.
Talk: Onboarding with Scrum
This talk focuses on how we used Agile principles and practices to aid us in onboarding. We will provide the very practical steps we used to get us going and keep us on the right track from day one. If you want to improve how your organisation hires, onboards, and trains people then this is the talk for you.
