Liftoff-it’s the unexplored, often ignored, Agile project practice. As the first act of flight, a rocket launch requires an entire set of systems to lift the vehicle into orbit-not just the vehicle itself, but all the systems needed for smoothly moving off the ground into space. Likewise, your project needs its entire set of supporting systems in place to begin a successful journey to delivery. Whatever you call it (project kickoff, bootcamp, inception, or jump start), liftoff gives your team its trajectory, and launches your project. This critical practice informs, inspires, and aligns everyone to a singular purpose: the successful delivery of software.show less
Systemic constellation is an action based method to investigate and understand human systems. We can use it to develop the dynamics of an organization, but also to develop brands and products or also in recruiting processes.
The method has been lately researched in many countries and the results are very promising. We can state that it gives trustworthy diagnosis of the dynamics of an organization or how its stakeholders are relating to each other.
In this workshop I will show you, with your help, how this method works and how to use it to solve problems related to human systems.show less
Coaching requires a combination of quickly assessing where the group your coaching is. What the individual needs of each participant are at any given moment and transferring knowledge, skill and habits to the people you’re coaching.
Mobbing (working together as a group) is an excellent way to achieve all this. It helps you to quickly assess where everybody is, and with that knowledge, you can start to introduce exactly what it needed. You get to see if the things you are saying are transferring into actions in the participants immediately. And you don’t have to waste time explaining things they already know.
In short, mobbing allows for 1:1 mentoring experience with an entire group.
Come learn how to facilitate this for technical sessions. This will be an exercise-intensive workshop to give you your first experiences in what it is like to facilitate programming work in this manner.
Some learnings from this session:
- Getting started with a mob
- Setting up an environment
- Avoiding common mistakes in facilitating a mob
- Working with code you’re unfamiliar with
- Optimizing for when you’re gone
- Coaches Bag of Tricks
