If you are part of a self-organized team, how can leadership styles and management styles be an asset to you?
Do you want to discover, great collaboration techniques that are usually only taught to managers?
First, based on movie extracts of the epic Star Wars, we will discover different styles. Then, through intensive role play, you will learn, through practice, how to use these styles and how to use them appropriately according to a person and a context.

In large global organizations where the size of the product exceeds what a single Scrum team can deliver, we think through the best way to organize teams and work. In this hands-on workshop, we navigate through the process of developing & assessing large organizations using Lego. Unlike traditional paper-based “box and line” org charts, these models are physical, are built collaboratively, and provide insights into the psychology of the organization and its people. At Agile2012, this session was standing-room-only! Read about it on InfoQ here: http://tiny.cc/bs1duw

How can we positively charge and orient Scrum Team members toward effective participation in the conversations, activities and innovation necessary to deliver business value? Let's get team members to Harmonize. To maintain team Harmony, we can draw on examples from the Arts where Harmony is sustained by using improvisation to adapt to changing complexity. The "Scrum Team that Harmonizes" workshop employs improvisation exercises from the Acting world that are designed to work on the specific skills needed by team members to perform effectively in each of the four types of Scrum Meetings.

"Who are you?" is the question I received in the last Play4Agile event in Germany during my enlightening talk. While answering this question I noticed how important is to start sharing with my fellow Scrummers my personal growth journey. The Inner Innovation program started during one of our sprint planning meetings at the AGFA HealthCare R&D Center in Gent, Belgium. I would like to share the energy, insights, and the key concepts and techniques of this program with the Scrum community. Inner Innovation is an opportunity to grow in consciousness, self-awareness, and self-confidence.

Summary: Type: Workshop

"Us and Them" culture is deeply engrained in our organisations and can easily derail our efforts to become Agile by hindering cross functional collaboration. If we are to deliver software effectively we must find ways that change the mindset from one of blame to one where fellowship is the norm. This practical workshop explores ways to initiate this mindset shift. We'll learn how to lay the foundations by building mutual respect with listening and empathy and progress to understanding each others needs and collaborating with ease.

Trust is absolutely key to an Agile culture.

Without trust we lack transparency and honesty, and it is very hard for us to be courageous.
Here we look at some background on what Trust means and then consider how we can build trust and what inhibits it.

We will also share common themes in our previous findings on the subject of trust.

Summary: There are team situations where everything just seems to flow well and othes where things suddenly fall apart. What makes these situations different? The social aspects of the brain have a huge influence on how teams work.

In this workshop we explore different team situations that are brain-friendly and others which are not, so that we can start to understand the team dynamics from the brain's perspective. By joining this workshop you get concrete ideas on what to pay attention to when working with teams that will help the team to be much more effective.
