Lo que hacemos


SEAM is a London based monthly meet-up focussing on Enterprise Agility, new ways of working which enable enterprises to offer value and opportunity to their customers.

Naturally there is a significant focus on technology although it is in the context of the purpose of the enterprise – what organisations are attempting to achieve as well as how to go about it.

Each meet up will be different and will use combinations of the following to provide the aforementioned insights:

Customer/Business/Technology case studies from organisations leading the way or trying something different

• Presentations and/or demos from thought leaders

• Community participation where everyone has the opportunity to discuss their opinions on relevant subject matter

• Guest speakers from different walks of life who can add alternative perspectives on achievement of one form or another

Whilst not an exhaustive list, the type of topics we’ll be covering include:

• Enterprise objectives, realisation and the management there of

• Innovation

• Lean processing

• Agile delivery

• User/Customer Experience

• DevOps

• Cloud

• Security

• Sustainability

The target SEAM community is a diverse group of people who are interested in all or some of the above. Our aim is to bring people together from all backgrounds including customers, senior management, technologists, business operations and so on.

Thanks to regular sponsor E-Synergy Solutions (https://www.esynergy-solutions.co.uk/) for their continual support.

SEAM#30 - Enterprise Science and Fairy Tales (Benedict Steele & Alberta Soranzo)

Join me, Alberta Soranzo (Lloyds Banking Group) and Benedict Steele (Armakuni) at SEAM#30 where we'll be exploring the realities of transforming enterprise culture in a way you haven't seen before! Agenda: 18:30 - 19:00 - Networking drinks and pizza 19:00 - 19:40 - Alberta Soranzo Goldilocks and the Enterprise — Chasing value in complex systems If transforming culture was as easy as applying a universal formula, updating furniture and deploying coaches throughout organisations, we’d be well underway to have changed the world. And if releasing value was as simple as delivering software in an effective way, the agile community would be out of a job soon. In this session we’ll explore complexity, systems and services and look at different ways to understand and release value in the environments we operate in. 19:40 - 20:20 - Benedict Steele How to be an Evil Scientist Have you ever fancied turning your co-workers into laboratory rats and have them scurry around a maze searching for food whilst you ring a bell and the office cat slavers at the mouth? No? Okay, well we weren't going to tell you how to do that anyway! What we will share is how to embed a culture of ongoing experimentation that enables your team to learn and adopt new technologies, techniques, and processes - whilst also achieving current objectives. No animals were harmed in the creation of this talk. 20:20 - 20:30 - Close & Go to the pub A bit about Alberta... A firm believer that there’s always another way to look at a challenge, Alberta Soranzo has been hacking things to make them work better for humans since she was a child. An incorrigible nomad, she’s lived and worked in Italy and California and is now based in London, UK. As End-to-End (E2E) Service Design and Systems Thinking Director at Lloyds Banking Group, she focuses on the creation and delivery of future-friendly services and customer outcomes that are rooted in systemic understanding and deliver value. She is driven by the opportunity to make a real impact on outcomes for both people and the organization, by looking after the big picture as well as paying attention to the very small things that, she says, ‘matter a lot’. Unafraid of challenging conventions, Alberta puts people at the heart of her design process and contends that you should always under promise and then over deliver. In her natural habitat, she’s sitting on the floor surrounded by bits of paper and post-its or standing in front of a whiteboard with a handful of markers. Prior to Lloyds, Alberta was experience design director at digital agencies in London and at UCLA in California. She has a long track record of leading strategic projects for global brands, including Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, UCLA, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, RBS, BUPA, The Co-operative Group, EDF, Nuffield Health and T.Rowe Price. When she’s looking to escape the world of design, Alberta plays ice hockey, lifts weights and tries to keep up with the crazy life of her teenage daughters. A bit about Benedict...
