Then we will go over on all the Scrum meetings (events) and describe all kind of games that we can play in order not only to create efficient meetings but also to boost their energy.

Elisabet White

The 12 Agile Principles from the Agile Manifesto are building blocks for a successful, sustainable Agile journey - regardless of industry and/or department. Many pitfalls that organizations experience are due to oversight and lack of adherence to the Agile Principles.

In this workshop we will go through common issues that lead organizations astray and provide solutions to get back on course throughout any Agile journey.

Kurt Bittner

In this session you will get to know how the organizations’s pursuit of predictability creates unwitting mediocrity traps that prevent positive change and growth. You will learn to understand where these traps most impede success and how to use agility to embrace uncertainty and break free of those traps.

In this session you will review the SAFe principles with Ilan and go over the 4 configurations that SAFe offers.

You will learn about the different levels in SAFe and the roles & responsibilities within each level. We will describe the different Backlog types, and how they map into the SAFe levels.

Finally you'll get an insight on SAFe cadence, and see how teams and programs execute it via the SAFe events/routines/meetings.

You can't play a symphony alone, it takes an orchestra to play it. The greatest music can be created in partnership, where there is an environment for engagement, accountability, safety, trust and creativity.

In organizations today value is being created by teams, and if we want to create more value we need to understand how to create great teams and to continually empower them.

Through this workshop the participants will experience the value of self-organizing teams, the mindset and the journey to get there, using games and exercises that will transform the learning into practice and fun.

14:00 - 14:15

Team Dynamics


14:15 - 15:15

Robert Annis

In a modern organisation, individual expertise reduces innovation. To be successful, organisations need to learn how to utilize teams of these experts. In this session we’re going to talk about how to actually build such and transforming these teams into leaders of their work.

Product Leadership Lessons from the Samurai


14:15 - 15:15

Chris Lukassen

This workshop offers insights for being successful at work, based on Eastern philosophies and martial arts, at the heart of which lies the right balance between reason and intuition.

Concepts such as purpose, overcoming resistance, efficiency, communication and the difference between intent and behaviour are the underlying principles of Eastern martial arts, but they can also be directly applied to modern agile (business)life. This is crucial in the modern world with flat organisations, where leadership is expected

at all levels but seldom given the training and insight to become skilled in this. Successful leadership no longer requires an effort - instead it becomes a state of being.

Coffee Break


15:15 - 15:30
