Session One:

Top 7 Agile Tips I Learnt as an Agile Product Manager

Benjamin Mitchell, Partner, Equal Experts

Description: Agile is great, but what are the essential tips to ensure that you deliver value for customers and clients? Drawing on well over a decade of experience of using agile techniques to lead teams delivering websites for clients such as BBC Worldwide and HMRC Digital, Benjamin will cover:

• Starting with purpose (and how to clarify it if it’s not as clear as you’d like)

• It’s the people … why negotiating skills are essential

• Being good to work with

• How to make progress with imperfect tools

• Why showing others is better than simply telling

• How professional pride and identity can interfere with acting effectively

• How to challenge assumptions without being aggressive or insulting

Session Two:

Real World Agile: Tricks, Traps and Tales from the Trenches

Phil Parker, Partner, Equal Experts

Description: An uber-experience report that contains a combination of giggles, facepalms, and hopefully a few 'aha' moments. Whether you are an agile newbie or a full-time, experienced agile coach there is something here for you!

Pizza and drinks will be provided as usual.
