Greetings Wellington! We are thrilled to be bringing Equal Experts’ distinct approach to agile software development to New Zealand.
ExpertTalks invites the software community to share ideas and inspiration, discuss issues, and learn from the successes and failures experienced on real case studies. We cover a variety of themes – from pure technology (programming languages, design, architecture) to product design (Lean, UX, UI), software methodologies (XP, Scrum, etc...) and more. As long as it's related to tech, we want to share it. Join us!
Food and drink will be provided. We'll look forward to saying hello.
Who moved my bottleneck?
In this talk international best selling author Clarke Ching will show you how to overcome the #1 and #2 blockers hobbling most Agile teams. They cause delays, force rework, and trap enormous amounts of business value inside your customer's backlogs. Both blockers live outside IT - #1 is diluted Product Ownership and #2 is C-level scepticism - and many teams give up trying to overcome them, and focus on being efficient, not effective.
Clarke will share three startling insights that help you "sell agile" while barely needing to mention agile. One insight is that a lot of our colleagues in "the business" buy into the gist of Agile, but don't like it because it makes their life harder. Clarke will show you how to stop pushing "your" Agile solutions and instead solve your Product Owners' and their bosses' problems.
