Scrum 3.0 - same but different

First CST. more than 3000 CSM trained. Respected Consultant. Brand.

Yes, the heart of Scrum has not changed. But today we see Scrum-Teams working together across continents and the idea of Agile has arrived at the management-levels.

Boris will clarify which aspects of Scrum should be reassessed.  We will dig down to the core of roles and practices and sort out what we need to do differently to what is written in Scrum-books. He will also look at useful product architectures and communication infrastructures, necessary skill sets, management tools and the needs of scaled environments.

Leading in Complexity

Strategic IT Consultant, Agile Organizational Coach, Public Speaker, Trainer
His focus is on helping companies to transition to organizational and cultural models that are better suited to the kind of knowledge work. In over 20 years of professional experience, he worked with organizations ranging from the United Nations to small and dynamics IT companies.

Empowerment, self-management and collective intelligence are signs that an Agile organization has matured to the point of focusing more on value delivery rather than processes.  In many cases, however, this can be achieved only by revisiting the leadership culture inside the organization, particularly from the perspective of complexity thinking. Leadership is highly emergent and contextual, and that there is no "one size fits all" approach.
In this talk we'll see how self-organization and leadership are interconnected, and what people in a leading position can do (and can't do) to bring about change in complex environments.
