Inga Bielińska Team Coaching Through Groupthink

TALK:

Team coaching through groupthink. Patrick Lencioni once said, Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is the teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare. When it is so crucial to be a team player how to avoid perils of groupthink (foolish consensus and a blind spot for mistakes) and find conditions to grow? How to cope with ill feelings, disagreement and conflicts within a team, especially in the environment when we all need to like each other? This presentation will deal with capacity for working through conflict and try to find out how open-mindedness about fights can help to overcome groupthink and will lead to diversity of opinions and independence of thought that can build a sustainable team.

Dawid Pytel, Rafał Wywioł Self-organization applied

TALK:

Self-organization applied. The number is 7. Scrum Guide mentions "self-organization" 7 times. But... what does that mean exactly? Which part of "self-organization" is more important - "self" or "organization"? How would you distinguish between being in charge and being in control? Hopefully you will find your own answers after this talk for intermediate audience.

Agnieszka Biernacka Implementation of Personal System Interaction Theory in Every Day Scrum Work

TALK:

Implementation of Personal System Interaction theory in every day scrum work. In 90' Julius Kuhl developed theory about action and state orientation. From last twenty years many researches tested this theory in education, health and business areas. Now, we have a lot of practical ideas about how to create an environment that supports effective work for each kind of employees. Ideal environment provides an autonomy necessary to develop intrinsic motivation and rules that sustain beginning and continuing actions for state oriented people.

Łukasz Węgrzyn Legal side of Scrum

TALK:

Legal side of Scrum Agile projects from a legal point of view. Is it possible to write an agile based contract and if so, how does it differ from traditional waterfall agreement? Is it true that contracts are written only for tough times or maybe a real good contract could prevent us from a legal battlefield nightmare? Moreover, maybe it's high time to think of contracts as a project management tool, rather than just a piece of boring formal papers? What are pros & cons of agile software contracts and, last but not least, why lawyers should also start to be agile...

Radosław Lont I'm Agile, Call Me a Coach

TALK:

I'm agile, call me a coach Setting off from two questions (1) why do we forget development teams in all that agile-boom? and (2) why do Scrum Masters call themselves agile coaches? I would like to take listeners on a journey along observations I made and experienced. Starting from current IT careers market, through the experiences of job interviews, up to things heard in agile communities and practiced at work I will point out many misleading concepts proving lack of understanding that later affects our daily work as members of the scrum team - developers or scrum masters. I will be happy to put on the top of that my sharing of good practices, findings after experiments and warnings of possible bad side effects. All proving that teaching, advising and experimenting by the scrum master is a coaching process of himself rather than of teams or PO. Becoming a true change agent and coach takes years and do not exempt from learning at work.

Piotr Gruszczyk Daily Need For Speed – Can You Truly Read Your Scrum Speedometer?

TALK:

Daily Need For Speed - can you truly read your Scrum speedometer? Have you ever felt your project vehicle was speeding up and still failed at the end? Or imagine you are slowing down and your speedometer shows you're speeding up - how scary it may become?

So far I've witnessed or taken part in quite a few successful Waterfall to Agile transformations during my work in MSI, and one of the things I learned is that team velocity despite of its' simplicity can be really misleading. Even though a lot of information can be derived from the velocity metric, the Scrum teams often show tendency to either 1) overestimate its' value, especially in a Waterfall to Agile transformation, or to 2) underestimate it because of misguiding myths and opinions like "the work has to be done no matter what the velocity is".

Misinterpreted measurements in Scrum are like driving a sports car with a broken speedometer - you feel it is fast but how can you tell what is your real speed? You may feel the moment of speeding up or slowing down but the project is not just a point in time, is it? Yet in the end - is your lack of control truly the speedometer malfunction's fault or the person's that had set it up?

Mateusz Ryba, Mateusz Szumełda Scrum in the real world - how to succeed and stay alive

TALK:

Scrum in the real world - how to succeed and stay alive. Do you work with an external Product Owner? Can you call your team truly self-organized? What do you think Scrum can give to not-dev teams? We want to tell you our stories of spreading agile approach in a Polish software house. We will share with you our experience in real cases coming from every day work. There will be no theoretical bullshit, but maybe you'll match your own story.
