Speaking Events, Presentations

Innovel staff believe in supporting and growing the Agile community. As practitioners we believe it is important to give back to the community and support it with new ideas, concepts, and applied research. We also engage and develop local communities of practitioners and consultants so that there is a support system for people new to Agile.

If you or your group is interested in Innovel speakers or assistance, please contact us.

Agile 2010 Conference, Orlando, FL Cooking the Product Stew, Robin Dymond with Jurgen De Smet

Talk on Large Scale & Distributed Agile in a Large Software Vendor in Transition What is a stew? A stew is made from various ingredients you have around, left overs, new ingredients that go together well, and others that are filling but need lots of sauce. The enterprise software market is made up of products that are a stew of software on many legacy platforms that have evolved over a long period by many hands. Taking an enterprise software product to Agile methods is a challenge. In a uniquely European context, this presentation will draw from the ongoing agile adoption in a multi-location multi-team enterprise product with 460 staff in 4 countries and 5 locations.

Agile 2010 Conference, Orlando, FL What I learned from burning my parents’ house down! Yves Hanoulle with Robin Dymond

Talk on Agile Coaching and how people respond to crisis and change. July 1991 Yves’ parents go on holiday. Leaving him (19 years old) to guard their house. 1 august 19 hour 36 minutes: Yves’ parents house burns down. It was Yves’ fault. And yet it was the best thing that happened to him till 2002. If you want to know why, come to our session. This interactive talk will show you why a crisis is a good thing. We make the link to agile transitions and how coaches can use a crisis. Why do people change? Do we consider their interests when making a change? This talk is based in part on the book A Sense of Urgency by change management expert John Kotter.
