Post date: Jun 06, 2016 10:6:3 PM
Who has not heard the rules of prioritisation? - Prioritise by business value - Do the highest value work first Easy eh? In this interactive presentation Allan Kelly will demonstrate how doing the lowest value story first can increase value and he will demonstrate how value correlates with frequency of delivery. And if time allows he will show how projects destroy value.
Bio: Allan Kelly helps companies and teams make software in a better way. He works with developers, managers, analysts and everyone else to make the making better. Usually this goes by the name of Agile or Lean but ultimately its about making work practices and processes better. He mostly works with software intensive companies and companies whose very business depends on software.
When he is not with clients he writes far too much. He is the author of three books: "Xanpan - team centric Agile Software Development", "Business Patterns for Software Developers" and "Changing Software Development: Learning to be Agile"; the originator of Retrospective Dialogue Sheets and a regular conference speaker.
What is Servant Leadership? Is there more to it than "unblocking all the things and getting out of the way"? We will look afresh at this classic leadership model and show Servant Leadership's present-day relevance to the challenges of Lean-Agile transformation. Bio: Mike is the founder of Agendashift, author of the book Kanban From The Inside, consultant, and trainer. In recent months he has been the interim delivery manager for two UK government digital "exemplar" projects and consultant to public and private sector organisations at home and abroad. Prior to his consulting career, he was global development manager and Executive Director at a top tier investment bank, and IT Director for an energy risk management start-up. @asplake blog.agendashift.com
