PDC 2018 - Day 2 Session 6 Track 1: Darren Terrell - An Introduction to Agile at Scale

Topic: An Introduction to Agile at Scale

Being Agile at scale is tremendously difficult to achieve. Many times, the practices used for aligning an organization using Agile impede the delivery of real value.  There are many frameworks for agility in the enterprise and custom implementations.  This session will explore the basics of frameworks like SAFe (Scaled Agile), LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum), Nexus, Scrum @ Scale, and the Spotify model.  Darren will then compare the frameworks to distill down what makes them successful.  Once these insights are gained, he will continue down the path of how to build a framework custom for your organization.  The topic will be presented in a fashion that even novice practitioners will be able to understand the principles across the various frameworks.

Note: Everyone will gain insights from this session as it distills concepts down to basic elements.

Panic Squad Bio:

Website/Video:  https://panicsquad.com/

Panic SquadWe have been teaching our Improv Leadership principles across North America with great success. We are firm believers that learning important elements of teamwork and leadership should be fun and memorable. When we’re laughing together we’re open and engaged. When we’re open and engaged, we’re learning. Too often professional development has great content but lacks the delivery to make it fun and make it stick.

If you’ve ever sat through a seminar with a presenter that sounded like the adults in Charlie Brown movies, and a presentation that needed to incorporate stand up and stretch breaks, then you know what I mean. What about passion, creativity, collaboration and those “Aha!” moments that ignite new ideas and behavior? How about breaking through and stretching your limitations instead of taking a break to stretch your legs?

20 years of performing professional improv comedy for diverse organizations across North America has taught us some fabulous lessons in teamwork and leadership. We’ve fused our expert improv experience with key elements of teamwork and leadership to create a memorable professional development workshop we call Improv Leadership. Part professional improv performance and part leadership training, your team will love laughing and learning together.
