Agile Talks #7


Agile Talks wants to bring together people who are passionate about software development and agile methods.

We will have two talks of maximum 30 minutes and after that two Open Space slots for around one hours.

The event ends with a group retrospective and with some conclusions from the participants.

Agile Talks is a great opportunity to both learn from other people's experiences and discuss your own topics during the Open Space.

First Talk: Flavius Stef - " 5 things I've learned in 10 years of agile". I first worked in an agile team in 2008. In the meantime, as a developer, manager, coach and consultant, I’ve seen more than 50 teams try “doing agile”. Some of their attempts succeeded, others failed. In this talk I’ll distill my learnings over the last decade and in the process hopefully debunk the most common myths surrounding agile. Design, productivity or change management are just three of the themes I’ll cover.

Flavius Stef is VP Engineering at Syneto, where he leads the development of the company’s main product line called HYPERseries. Starting with 2011, he worked as a coach and trainer, helping teams in more than 20 companies transition to an Agile way of working.

Second Talk: John Meehan & Tom Suter - "Implementation of the SAFe Framework @ Haufe-umantis". In 2017, Haufe-umantis, a company of the Haufe Group, began to deploy the SAFe Framework at its offices in St Gallen, Switzerland, and Barcelona, Spain.This discussion will center on the various challenges encountered in deploying the framework within a culturally-diverse organisation, the tools adopted as part of this deployment, and the lessons learned thus far along the journey.

Tom Suter is a Scrum Master and Agile Coach at Haufe-umantis in St Gallen. A Dutch national, Tom has many years’ experience in coaching teams to achieve their potential as high-performing development teams.

John Meehan is a Scrum Master and Agile Coach at Haufe-umantis in Barcelona. An Irish national, John has many years’ experience as a systems developer, project manager, and for the last 5 years, as a Scrum Master in Ireland, the Middle-East, and, most recently, in Spain.

If you want to sponsor Agile Talks, please get in touch. Participants love having some drinks and some food in the evening so that can discuss the current burning matters with more energy.
