Liberating Structures; Unleash Innovative Conversation – with Kemmy Raji

Do you want people to feel part of a group/team or part of an activity? Then ensure that they are included and engaged.
Do you find facilitating a large group of people unmanageable, people disengaged? Try Liberating Structures with your teams and organization.

Liberating Structures, created by Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz, covers a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team. It makes it possible to build the kind of meeting that everybody looks forward to attending and participating.

Participants learn how to use these micro-structures to simplify meeting outcomes, help group collaborate and become more productive.

Returning to the Heart of Agile – Alistair Cockburn

“Agile has become overly decorated. Let’s scrape away those decorations for a minute, and get back to the center of agile.”

The Heart of Agile is a fresh look at Agile that strips away a lot of the cruft that has built up over recent years. Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve. This talk goes over the addition of kokoro onto the shu-ha-ri sequence, and it’s implications for agile. A fun, light talk with heavy implications.

Following the heart of agile talk, Alistair answered questions from the audience using the unusual form of answering with stories. They are more fun to listen to, and often more illuminating.
