1. The Agile movement is over ten years old: shouldn't this be easy by now? This talk draws on Matt's experience coaching numerous teams and organisations, highlighting the reasons why so many companies fail to reap the benefits enjoyed by the early adopters. You'll gain insights into the core principles behind agile, and emerge refreshed, determined and equipped to make your company's agile adoption a success.

  2. Everyone is familiar with some variant of the Golden rule: "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." . This maxim is almost universally found in schools of faith and ethical tradition and often repeated but does it really matter? This aim of this session is to put the golden rule at the center of organizational effectiveness! Science is increasingly finding that in general humans are hard-wired for fairness, to the point that will incur personal loss to punish what is considered unjust behavior. Proof is also appearing that sharing, not only is caring, but at a deep level is one few paths to sustainable happiness. Given these two, the wisdom of old & the validated supported claims of modern science, is there a implication for effective organizations act & function? The answer is yes , and there's an easy to understand model of organizational effectiveness & a movement built around it that explains why: Rightshifting. The session will first go through the golden rule from a few different angles & hopefully the kind audience will contribute their own variants. Secondly I'll talk a slight bit about some of the current research around fairness running through some experiments and if time allows (and dry-runs are successful) incorporate a short demonstration. Lastly I'll connect these two and show how they relate to a highly rightshifted synergistic pattern of organizational behavior (coincidentally the space occupied by lean & agile thinking).

  3. Rightshifting explains how most knowledge-work organisations fall far short of their potential. The Marshall Model explains the causes of organisational effectiveness - or lack of it. This session will explain the basics of Rightshifting and the Marshall Model, giving the necessary context for the rest of the morning's sessions, and explaining how all this affects your job satisfaction, career prospects and life at work.

  4. Systemic Flow Mapping is a technique for visualising organisation-wide flow, bottlenecks, and constraints across multiple delivery teams and departmental boundaries. Its aim is to provide enlightenment into wasteful, inefficient, and stressful workplaces helping to inform and shape organisational change using Kanban. Systemic Flow Mapping facilitates the implementation of Kanban at scale showing the negative systemic impact of local optimisation and provides insight into the wider implications and decisions in organisational structure and flow.
