• Tuesday CTO School Lunch (monthly)

    HuTong

    A monthly lunch with other CTO School members; a casual chat about things of interest over good food. Open to any CTO’s (or CTO-like roles) or people aspiring to get there. IMPORTANT: If you RSVP a spot, and no longer can make it, please un-RSVP to free up a spot for someone else. If you’re on the waitlist, you likely can come, but seating is on a who-gets-there-first basis - we will book 2 large tables and increase the booking if numbers are high. This is a pay-your-own way lunch - each table will generally share food and split a bill (taking dietary requirements into consideration).

  • The Game has Changed (Trends in modern Product Managemen)t - Jeff Patton

    Abstract: We all know how fast technology changes. But, we sometimes fail to understand how fast our process needs to change to keep up. This talk is about how 21st century software development has thrown out most of the process assumptions you might have originally learned. In this talk Jeff Patton will explain how Product Thinking, Lean Startup Thinking, and Continuous Delivery has fundamentally changed how we design and build software. Jeff Patton is an evangelist for the inclusion of strong product design and user experience practice in Agile development. He teaches and coaches a contemporary blend of practice that incorporates Lean Startup and Design Thinking, all directed at helping organizations build products their customers love. Jeff is known for coining the term Story Mapping to describe a simple holistic approach to using stories in Agile development without losing sight of the big picture. He wrote the definitive book on Story Mapping https://www.jpattonassociates.com/user-story-mapping/ Tonight he wants to share his observations on new emerging ideas and themes in Agile Product Management.

  • Improve your leadership with insights from positive psychology

    It's vital to understand the benefits of positive psychology at an executive level because an organisation that invests in staff wellbeing drives increases to company profitability, productivity, quality, customer satisfaction and employee retention. Positive psychology is about the concept of wellbeing of the mind. It's not dissimilar to the idea of training your body to be fit and healthy so you can avoid injury. Positive psychology lets you improve long-term health by working on the areas of wellbeing that improve resilience personally and in the workplace. The science of mood contagion is a key reason to focus on discussing this concept with leaders and influencers in organisations: you! This workshop-style session will be led by Dr. Liz Blink. She is a product nerd who has been working in the industry for more than 15 years. She's a product person who was introduced to the industry when we were still doing waterfall! She has happily transitioned to agile and loves it and embraces it for all the elements it encourages of team empowerment and group intellect. However, in terms of leadership and how we continue to ensure teams lift above the process instead of getting lost in the rituals, she's been exploring positive psychology as part of her latest phase of professional development in leading teams. She believes it has some great tools to enable us (leaders) to enhance our current team building skills and & actively contribute to a positive culture at our organisation. She thinks we can do more to contribute to the culture of our organisations off the wealth of great work that has already been established by agility.
