Kano Analysis is a powerful and enlightening tool for Product Owners to identify which features enhance and which subtract from that most crucial of factors - Customer Satisfaction. It is my favourite prioritisation method by far.

But have you ever thought of applying Kano TO Scrum? Which parts of Scrum are exciting? Which are mandatory? What about Kanban? What about XP? In this workshop we will go all "meta" and apply the Kano technique to the famous Agile methods, and see what results come out!

Many Scrum implementations suffer from poor management understanding and support. In this presentation you will learn how ideas and practices from Management 3.0 can be used and applied to strengthen Scrum.

We will take a look at how the six views views on organizations from Management 3.0 (energize people, empowering teams, align constraints, develop competence, grow structure and improve everything) can be used to deliberately strengthen a Scrum implementation.

Cultural Diversity can sometimes be seen as a negative, but it has the power to take teams and projects to places never thought possible. This hands-on workshop will allow you to explore Culture Diversity, working through the benefits and hindrances it can bring to a project. Cultural Diversity occurs in all teams, not just those spread across the world. You will investigate how to unlock the diversity within your teams and leave with practical ideas to facilitate a similar session with your own teams after the conference.

You may have heard that Agile is a certain culture. If you have ever experienced friction between Scrum and your organisation's dominant corporate culture, this is the session for you.

Organisational psychologist William E. Schneider groups organisational cultures into four types. Which is your organisation and what does that mean? We will answer that in this session. We will also identify which cultures Scrum and Agile most closely represent.  This session will raise your awareness of the challenges and opportunities your organisation has in embracing Scrum as a vehicle for cultural change.

Summary: Type: Workshop
Track:

Our world is getting smaller and we face cultural differences everyday. Our Agile teams have members from all parts of the world. Sometimes co-located, often not. But are we really prepared for working in this global world? Do we know how to interact? Do we understand the values that drive our colleagues?
In this session, we explore cultural differences and how they affect the way we work. Through role-playing, you will experience other cultures and their effect on you. You will act out common challenges multicultural teams face.

Come and play and learn about cultures and about yourself!
