Playing it SAFe: Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it

 

"Playing it SAFe: Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it"" with Rita Santos Emmons, CSM, PSM I, SPC4 The Scaled Agile Framework, when introduced in 2011 sent the Agile Community into series of framework debates. Seven years later, SAFe continues to garner its fair share of supporters and critics. Regardless, SAFe remains the most popular scaling framework used for Agile at scale. Despite this, the question remains, what is it about SAFe that manages to be both appealing to some and displeasing to others. In this session, we will begin by walking through the key elements of the Scaled Agile Framework.
Then we’ll take a look at a case study from a Fortune 200 organization that implemented SAFe. Finally, we’ll discuss some pros, cons, and myths related to the Scaled Agile Framework.

Agile Lean Coffee

 

Come join us an AgileCincy Lean Coffee meetup... the best learning community Cincinnati has to offer! We'll use the lean coffee method of agenda-free, democratic conversation: bring your topics and ideas for discussion and engage in conversations about Agile, people, and the ways we work together! The concept is kind of like Open Space: a group of people gather and have a structured, yet agenda-less meeting. The outcome: ideation that truly originates from the employees. This format is very popular in other Agile communities and we’re bringing that style here for the evening. For more information on Lean Coffee: http://www.leancoffee.org

The Myth and Magic of Deliberate Practice

 

There's a deep and strong connection between accelerated learning and deliberate practice. Also, at some point, this deliberate practice becomes proficiency or fluency. Let's explore this in the context of agility and how this understanding will help you chart your own pathway.

March Meeting: Agile Leadership w/ Pete Behrens

When: March 08, 2018  (Second Thursday) 

Networking: 6:00 - 7:30 pm (networking starts at 5:30 pm)

Agile Leadership w/ Pete Behrens

The world of work is transforming at an unrelenting pace – product development is increasingly complex and uncertain, the speed of decisions and delivery are escalating at an exponential pace, customers are demanding more attention and responsiveness, and the workforce is entering with new expectations of engagement. Through all of this, 80% of managers continue to believe they are operating effectively with their employees, yet only 25% of employees agree. Something is wrong! Most leaders are unaware of how their own thoughts and actions are working against their leadership objectives. Ineffective leadership fuels the top impediments limiting organizational agility and growth – the fear of losing control, the resistance to change and contrasting values.

Pete illustrates how leadership agility improves self-awareness, amplifies decision-making, improves outcomes and grows organizational resilience and capacity in highly complex and fast-paced environments. Through the art of story-telling from his two decades of personal experience, as well as the experiences of other senior leaders with whom he has coached, Pete spotlights six critical mistakes you may be unaware of in your own leadership practice, how they may be working against your intent, and how to reorient your focus to improve your leadership outcomes.
