  • AGM & Panel Discussion - Agile Myths

    GridAKL / John Lysaght

    Welcome back to in-person Meetups Agile Aucklanders! This month we are starting up back at the Grid AKL for our Annual General Meeting. As part of our Society obligations, we will share with you our financials, state of the society and vision for the upcoming year. Did you know that your Agile Auckland committee members each have a different role under the Agile umbrella? We have a Scrum Master, Agile Project Manager, Product Owner, Agile Coach, Delivery Lead, Consultant Coach, Agile Practice Lead, and Software Engineering Researcher? We thought this month's meeting would be a great opportunity for you to get to know your committee by having them sit on a panel to discuss their unique experiences and debunk some common Agile myths. There will be plenty of time for you to ask any burning questions of the committee too, so bring your best and most challenging ideas to the party! We will also try to Zoom this meeting and run a hybrid-model to see if this works in the future. We'd love to see you in person, but understand if you are concerned about social gathering. And as always, we will record this meeting and put on our YouTube channel. Zoom Link is here: Agile Auckland 2.0 is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

  • A (deeper) dive into Organisational Agility for Agile Practitioners

    Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/97770254795 This session builds on the Agile Auckland Meetup Group discussion on Wed 17 June and will give you a broad idea of what will be covered in the NZQA approved micro-credential programme Organisational Agility for Agile Practitioners that is being run in September 2020 by The Institute for Social Sustainability in partnership with Tech Futures Lab. During this Thursday’s session, we will be discussing why learning how to ‘be agile’ demands a very different kind of personal and professional development than learning how to ‘do Agile’. Research is increasingly telling us that teams with individuals who operate at higher levels of emotional, mental and behavioural agility, deliver higher-quality outcomes than teams with individuals who lack that same capability. This session will take you on an experiential journey exploring the intersection between adaptive mindsets and Agile practices within a workplace context. In preparation for the session, please make sure you have seen the short introductory video that we played at the Agile Auckland Meetup Group discussion on Wed 17 June.

  • From Mindset to Practices

    Online event

    AGENDA: 5:45PM - Check-In to Zoom to secure your spot 5:55PM - Presentation/Workshop 7:00PM - Q&A and Wrap-Up We are all by now familiar with the concepts involved in moving from mind-set to practices, in an agile context. Yet in spite of this widespread knowledge issues remain with the actualisation of these concepts in the field. We continue to see organisations focused entirely on practice, without understanding, and at the other end of the spectrum, a naïve belief that mind-set alone is all that is needed. Neither approach on its own works particularly well. In this one-hour talk and interactive workshop Transformation Coaches Pete Tashkoff and Pallavi Nellipudi will walk us through a model that leads us from understanding, through mindset and values, towards identifying specific principles, policies, standards and methods both for individual disciplines and across the organisation. Bring a pen and paper to participate in the exercise (or go digital and use your phone)! Pallavi Nellipudi Pallavi Nellipudi (PMP, CSP, SPC) Is a digital transformation agent with E2E experience in IT Business and Technical delivery. She has around 17 years’ experience in IT across the globe and is passionate about delivering products and services to best imaginable customer experiences. In recent years she has been leading multiple key initiatives in digital transformation across organizations in New Zealand. Pete Tashkoff Pete Tashkoff (PMP, PSM, SPC) is Chief Coach at Visionate Ltd, which offers a wide range of practical, specific and targeted training and coaching approaches for organisations moving into or through transformation, designed to help companies to most effectively implement change. Pete has been involved in IT for 30 years, and in recent years has been focused on helping large New Zealand organisations identify and adopt beneficial transformational change.
