Track: Agile, thursday 11:20 - 12:10
Physical space, cultural climate, information flow, & organizational “soup”- All play key roles in creating an environment where project teams deliver value to their customers. Learn to create the optimal environment for the teams you join or manage. In this session, Diana Larsen will explore four critical influencers that help projects succeed and help you discover new ideas for shifting current environmental conditions and impediments to improve project outcomes.
Track: Collaboration, wednesday 15:35 - 16:25
We measure project success by the team's ability to efficiently and reliably deliver valuable, high quality software to the customer. Increase the prospect for project success by ensuring team members have the skills for effective collaboration and clear, unambiguous communication. Diana Larsen will describe the six collaboration skills teams need and show techniques to get them active in your team.
Track: Agile, monday - all day
Building on PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) and other continuous improvement tools and techniques, Diana Larsen will lead an interactive workshop on how to focus and lead retrospectives for daily, incremental and milestone progress toward improving software team processes, methods, teamwork and practices. The workshop will include a flexible framework for designing retrospective sessions, as well as group processes to help team members learn, think and make decisions together.
