What we're about

Welcome to #AgilityLab in Copenhagen!

We are a diverse group of people, eager to experiment with and explore ideas and concepts in the agile space.

We welcome curiosity, creativity, interaction and an open mind. We don’t believe we have all the answers and we do not see agility as a religion.

The organizer team is here to help you get started with events, invites, venues etc. Just reach out to one of us if you have an idea for a meetup.

Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Making SAFe® work with virtual scaled planning - with Ole Jepsen

“I was so confused and frustrated!”
“No one listened l to my input.”
“It was such a waste of time.”

Sound familiar?

These are comments we’ve probably all heard after a PI Planning event. What we want to hear instead is:

“𝗙𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆, 𝗜 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗶𝗴𝗴𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝗶𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲.”
“𝗜𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝘄𝗲𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗸 𝘁𝗼 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀.”
“𝗦𝗼 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗲𝗮𝗺𝘀.”

After preparing and facilitating countless SAFe planning events, Ole Jepsen understood key things that enable SAFe planning events to actually work, including:

★ The input (epics or features) must be co-created by representatives from the teams and key stakeholders, and they must be sliced into potential releases, so they drive the program toward early deliverables.

★ The longer-term plan (typically 9-18 months) must be co-created by the same people by roughly estimating and prioritizing the epics/features, so both stakeholders and teams get a shared overview, shared understanding, and shared ownership.

In this session, Ole will share war stories from both face-to-face and virtual big room planning events as well as tips and techniques that have worked to turn frustrated event participants into ones who get the benefits.

We’ll also play with some of the trickier steps TOGETHER in breakout rooms.

From Neuroplasticity to Growth Mindset - with Eva Kasiak

Online event

✳️ Did you ever have a dream, a desire you wanted to pursue, and yet the resistance took over?

✳️ Have you been in a situation where you would jump into the unknown, and yet your rational nature told you not to do so?

✳️ Are you working with Scrum Teams where the individuals are neglecting ideas for improvements, complaining but unwilling to contribute to create an even better workplace?

The human brain does many tricks on us, and we may not even be aware of it. What if we could learn to trick our brain and tell limitations, worries, and anxieties confident goodbye? Once for good!

How would your personal and professional reality look like if the core job you would give your brain would be to rewire? To constantly build new neural pathways?

👉 This is where 🅽🅴🆄🆁🅾🅿🅻🅰🆂🆃🅸🅲🅸🆃🆈 comes in, and we can use tools to build a growth mindset and say goodbye to a fixed mindset. There're many ways to do it. However, all of them utilize core brain functions with neurons as the main connectors and lasting change builders. We just need to find a way to nurture the neurons and start creating new neural pathways.

𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭

In this session, Eva Kasiak, Agile Coach and the creator of IT Coaching Hub, whose mission is to help IT professionals develop their human potential, will talk about what neuroplasticity is and how to build a growth mindset.

📌 The session will be divided into theory - where we will look into fundamental concepts of the human brain, its power, and how it can reorganize itself. We will run practical breakouts during which we will practice tools helping to expand and shift into a growth mindset.

📌 This session aims to provide attendees a toolset they can use to develop themselves and their peers at work.

𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐄𝐯𝐚 𝐊𝐚𝐬𝐢𝐚𝐤

In her various roles in IT since 2005, Eva has been IT Project Manager, Scrum Master, and Agile Coach. She is actively learning new things. Her motto is "learning is expanding." Whether it's about new projects, new concepts, generally trying out new things.

In her work with Scrum Teams and Agile transformations, she is always less focused on "mechanical Scrum" - aka let's have events and artifacts in place. Her most significant aim is to help Teams understand more human nature in the change process. She is using coaching skills in the majority of her engagements. Eva trust that the change comes from a growth mindset, and it's critical to first build a growth mindset to become open to new ideas and situations.

That is why Eva created the IT Coaching Hub initiative to help IT Professionals develop human potential. IT Coaching Hub relies on three pillars: neuroscience, coaching, and positive psychology. Tools and practices around these areas are shared and applied in daily life, both personal and professional.

Eva's dream is for people and herself to never give up, constantly seek new ways, and expand mental horizons.
