Doing not Talking: an Experiential Keynote

Adam St. Lawrence and Markus Hormess, (co-authors This is Service Design Doing) will deliver an experiential keynote using business methods drawn from the professional theatre.

Some keynotes you hear. This keynote you will do.

Going Where No-One Has Gone Before

Mirette Kangas (Head of Lean Agile Development YLE) and Antti Kirjavainen (cofounder and coach for the Lean Agile Accelerator at YLE) report on their experience of measurement-focused Enterprise Lean and Agile transformations at the Finnish Broadcasting Company.

When their transformation extends beyond the digital business to the journalistic, entertainment, and creative production sides of the house they realise it’s up to YLE to create agile benchmarks in these areas …

We have travelled a long way, and we’re still at the beginning of our transformation story.

Holding Space for Change

In Our Closing Keynote, Deborah Preuss asks: “What happens when you take the excitement of learning at ALE back to your workplace?”
The new practices you’ve learned can help, but the real magic lies in making room for new ways to take root – facilitators call it “holding space.”

In addition we've cultivated a few more 'seed sessions' to trickle through the open spaces in the program.  We're limiting the number of seed sessions to be sure we provide abundant space for everything that emerges

Agile culture lays the basis for diversity. It carries many practices and behaviours that make work inclusive. However, we also observe agile teams or organisations that are not at all diverse.

Check your sensitivity to unconscious bias, compare diversity research findings between Jeff Sutherland and Iris Bohnen and develop experimental actions for iteratively creating diversity in your teams and organisations.
