#1 Keynote and start with Niels Pflaeging
#2 Baby steps – from middle management on the way to become and agile leader
by Sven KrauseCourage is not to have no fear but to overcome ones own fears
- example team lead election and changing performance appraisals (see some sketchnotes)
Major learnings for (servant) leadership:
- learn and invest in dialog and coaching
- goal transparency fosters collaboration and use goal presentation slots for progress updates
- be available – presence
Matches for me in a wide range with 7 core competencies of new leadership:
#3 The small 1×1 of agile project management
by Andrea Grass and Dr. Michael Hofmann
#4 Introduce Kanban (without consultants)
by Marco Mathews – interesting insights on learnings when introducing Kanban and on the way becoming an agile expert. Please check the interesting do’s and don’ts in the sketchnotes.
#5 Agile in projects – or how I started to try to save the world
by Matthias Mohme.Everyone has a plan until they get punched in their face (Tyson)
Interesting pitch to focus on individual needs instead of relying on values. It was for me a ping to elaborate more on the need for values.
#6 Leading without announced leads – a report from the field
by Steffen JacobAsk for forgiveness, not for permission!
#7 1001 traps – corporate ScrumMaster antipatterns
A nice presentation by Timothee Bourgnignon and his world of superheros the ScrumMaster combines and ways to prevent killing the team with just always using the super powers.
#7 Keynote highlight – about one who set forth to learn how to fail
Udo Wiegaertner created for me the highlight of the day and gave an inspiring in for me personally one of the best presentations I ever attended. Provoking, fun, brilliant slides and a play on stage. THX Udo – it made my day!
Just some notes – but by far not matching all the highlight and to be honest I just listened and enjoyed …
