Register for our first "Tell Me How To.." series event

Hear from Rebecca Harris who has over 15 years of demonstrated and successful project management delivery within an agile environment.

18 years on from the original Agile manifesto we are observing the Agile Industrial Complex - Agile has lost its simplicity and lightweight qualities. With the commercialisation of methodologies, certifications and frameworks, the original values and principles are often missing in the noise of imposing ‘Agile’ processes on people.
What does all this mean for the leader of today? To deliver value to customers high performing organisations are proving a consistent set of principles are guiding them to success including:

  • Delivery value continuously
  • Experiment & learn rapidly
  • Make safety a prerequisite to unlock high performance
  • Make people who use or make our products and services awesome

During this presentation Rebecca will discuss and provide insights from her experience delivering projects under agile umbrellas across different organisations in Brisbane.

The presentation will highlight:
  • What aspects of agile ways of working were effective and what weren’t?
  • What didn’t work and what was learnt along the way?
  • How has agile software delivery evolved?
  • How do we measure the ROI of working in an agile way;
  • What does an agile mindset mean; and
  • What does it mean to become a servant leader for your team?
