• Agile Leadership as a Service with Mina Boström Nakicenovic

    We're are proud to welcome Mina Boström Nakicenovic, who has recently been voted at one of the top 100 women in agile and always provides exciting and inspiring talks, back to AWA this October! Nowadays many companies are focused on improving their agile practices and processes. What they often lack is improving leadership skills at the management level. Leadership can be thought of as a service that people in an organization either ”buy” or ”don’t buy”, according to the INSEAD’s professors of business strategy R. Mauborgne and C. Kim. Every leader has customers: bosses to whom the leader must deliver business performance and followers who need the leader’s guidance and support to grow. When people value your leadership practices, they buy your leadership and are inspired to act with commitment. Otherwise they disengage. When leading software development, the challenge is not only to inspire and motivate people, but also to adjust the organizational design and the system architecture (Conway’s law) and also to create and drive a technical roadmap. Furthermore, leaders are responsible to align agile, autonomous teams to the company’s strategy and towards common company’s goals. So, how to manage all mentioned things in the best possible way so that people from all levels, up and down, buy your leadership? What are the most important features and properties in such a leadership service? ABOUT MINA: Mina is a passionate IT leader with 20+ years of experience in software development. She worked as a developer, software architect, development manager, head of development. Now she is about to start a very exciting journey as a Chief Technology Officer at Paradox Interactive. During her career Mina has been applying agile and lean principles on all domains she has been working with: software architecture, leadership, organizational structure, processes, business strategies, innovation management. Hence Mina has created unique perspectives on how software architecture, strategy and leadership intersect and how to leverage them for innovation and competitive advantage. Mina has a genuine interest in software development, curiosity to learn new perspectives and need to share knowledge and ideas with the others. That’s why she became a regular conference speaker and an active contributor to European agile communities. Mina’s passion for agile software development has also spread within her family. She and her husband are often taking their three kids to conferences, where they are presenting together as an agile family.

  • Thinking Environment with Anneke Panman

    Just Eat

    The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. Imagine working somewhere with an effective, engaging environment where you can think for yourself and contribute your best work. A place where thinking is encouraged, people listen to your thoughts and diverse views are sought. Using the​​ ​Thinking Environment​​ ​(TE) can make this happen even in a complex, fast-paced and frequently changing agile environment. The TE has found that the single most important thing that affects the quality of our thoughts is how we are treated while we are thinking. Often interactions in meetings don’t encourage the best thinking. The TE has observed ten behaviours that generate the finest independent thinking. These are known as the​​ ​ten components​. In this meetup we’ll focus on three of these components: attention, equality and ease. We’ll practice using these components in two different applications: Thinking Pairs and Thinking Rounds. OUTCOMES ● Improve business by increasing quality of thinking, and effectiveness, of employees at all levels. ● Facilitate meetings and have better results in shorter time. ● Review existing coaching methods to see if applying the components will improve sessions. ● Enhance personal relationships by changing interactions with others. ● Help children/family/friends think well for themselves. ABOUT ANNEKE What makes me tick is creating a place where agility, innovation and effectiveness flourish and continuous improvement thrives. I get reward from facilitating moments that challenge the status quo, shift mindsets and create opportunity. We’re all recruited for our skills, talent and knowledge and I enjoy using the TE to unleash these. I help evolve Agile frameworks as teams grow, products mature and the needs of the business change. The TE is a path to autonomous teams who remove impediments, innovate and produce strong market-leading solutions. I am a qualified Time to To Think facilitator, ICAgile Certified Professional in Coaching Agile Transitions with a 1st class degree, and PhD, in Physics.
