What we're about

Agile London is an established community, bringing together Agile enthusiasts in London to meet and share ideas, experiences, real-life problems, best working practices etc. We aim to provide the whole Agile community, whatever their level, with a regular meeting place to share knowledge from their own past experiences.

The group is made up of thousands of Agile professionals across various disciplines including Developers, Testers, Architects, Project Managers, Scrum Masters, CTOs and many more.

Agile London is free-to-attend although Oliver Bernard request attendees make a donation to our partner, Code Club (part of Raspberry Pi Foundation) a network of volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children, please donate at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/agilelondon .

Agile London with Close Brothers

Close Brothers Asset Management - London City office

Hello Everyone,

Agile London is back with another in-person event, hosted this time by Close Brothers, a UK merchant banking group, providing lending, deposit taking, wealth management and securities trading.

Drinks and Pizza will be from 5.30pm, with the first talk kicking off at 5.45pm!

More details on the talks with follow but our three speakers for the evening are:

- Matthew Lill (Senior Delivery Manager at Close Brothers) with "Bringing Agile to life - Practical steps implementing Agile at Close Brothers"

Synopsis - Transitioning from a waterfall to an agile environment, it is common to face political, cultural, process and governance challenges. This is a brief story on what we did to overcome them, the successes and how other areas of the business have now implemented it.

- Anikh Subhan (Delivery Principle) with "The Do's and Don'ts of an Agile transformation"

Synopsis - In this talk, Anikh will explore some of the common challenges faced by organisations when embarking on an agile transformation and how to overcome them. We will discuss what an organisation should and shouldn't prioritise, in order to embed a continuous improvement approach.

- Christopher Bramley (TEDx Speaker, Director & Principal at Finding Shores & Director of Coaching at Mozaic) with "It's a little more complex than that"

Synopsis - In a world where the business landscape has changed and that change is faster than ever, we turn to new ways to understand and manage this, but sometimes the novel is not the only or even best path. Around all transformations there are fundamental elements not subject to frameworks, and they are human, complex, difficult to navigate, and unique to each organisation - but they need to be understood if a transformation is to sustain and succeed. This is where a compass and a direction may have more value than a map.

Really looking forward to this one, spaces are limited though so please make sure you get signed up early as I will have to close the entry list when a certain number is hit!

Hope to see you there!

Thanks,
Alex
