Denne gangen får vi den erfarne og suksessrike smidige rådgiveren, Geoff Watts på besøk fra London. Geoff er sertifisert Scrum Trainer, og har lang erfaring fra smidige transformasjoner i store organisasjoner, blant annet fra BT, British Telecom. Han er også en av grunnleggerene til det anerkjente rådgivningsfirmaet Inspect & Adapt i UK.

Geoff vil denne midtsommerkvelden fortelle om sine erfaringer med overgang til smidig utviklingsmetodikk i store organisasjoner, gjennom å presentere suksesshistorien fra BT. BT er et av verdens største telekomselskap, og har mellom 5 og 6 tusen ansatte i sin IT avdeling. Det er med andre ord ingen liten transformasjon vi her snakker om.. Vi gleder os stort til å ta i mot vår engelske gjest og til å ta del i hans fantastiske, smidige visdom!

Vel møtt!

    Thanks for sharing your views on this talk Johannes. I agree with you, and I hope this talk can kill off some myths that you cant do agile in large projects, or when complexity is high. Like they said at BT, its when facing such challenges one HAS to go agile. Its the only way out of the mess. I would also like to thank Geoff for his excellent talk. Really inspirational.

    I appreciated the insight the lecturer displayed. The presentation of how this works in an enterprise-scaled company ansvered some of my questions regarding chaotic and somewhat rigid enviroments. The knowlegde shared by the lecturer can be applied in both large and small scale enviroments to some extent.

    Good, professional presentation. Interesting to hear how the transformation to agile is done in such a ?monstrous? organization as the presenter said. May be not applicable to Norwegian scale, but the challenges should be similar once an organization gets beyond a few scrum teams.
