Coaching Isn't Just For Agile Coaches Any More

Coaching is a useful skill that anyone can learn and apply, whether you are an Agile Coach or not. Quickly learn about the coaching mode of Agile Coaching from five fun games. In "Flash Card Coaching," you will witness the power of powerful questions and the value of coaching by using only preset questions to do a full coaching session.

There are three categorization games where you will work together in small groups to learn about powerful questions, giving advice, and the differences between the 4 modes of Agile Coaching.

Finally, there are two "Choose Your Own Coaching Adventure" games. These are just like the old "Choose Your Own Adventure" games. Your choices lead down a path that either leads a successful coaching outcome or an unhappy coachee. Each unhappy ending comes with an explanation and you can always back up and try again.

February Meeting - Why Regulated and Compliance-focused Companies Need DevOps

February Meeting - Why Regulated and Compliance-focused Companies Need DevOps

When: February 14, 2019  (Second Thursday) 

Where: Callibrity Complex (Building Next Door) 4445 Lake Forest Dr Suite 170 Blue Ash, OH 45242

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

 

Why Regulated and Compliance-focused Companies Need DevOps

Whether it's PCI, HIPAA, or SOX, companies that are under regulatory scrutiny typically rely on legacy methods and tools to prove compliance. Unfortunately, most highly regulated companies (and auditors) are often slow to accept new methods of software delivery such as Agile and DevOps, including fully automated infrastructure, continuous delivery, and rights management. In reality, these methods are not only more effective, they improve compliance - from end to end tractability to consistent, secure systems.

This talk will include several key concepts, tools, and techniques that take the pain out of audits, improve security, and allow teams to focus on product development at market speed. Misconceptions about automated processes, misinterpretation of regulatory guidelines, and reinforcement of the actual outcome - privacy and security - will be discussed and demonstrated. It's time to improve not only compliance, but overall delivery and dispel the fear of automation.

Embrace a Growth Mindset

Do you have a growth mindset. More importantly, does your organization have a growth mindset? How does this impact an organizational transformation? Organizational learning happens when people begin questioning the way things are done, they begin trying out different ideas together and share those learnings. Join me as we explore what it means to have a growth mindset.
