T4AT has always thrived on great thematic diversity, and this is a tradition we want to continue. This time, we will be offering eight different content tracks with some classic T4AT topics and exciting new things. In detail, these are:
From methodology frameworks like Scrum and Kanban to moderation techniques in retrospectives – everything is possible when discussing how to help agile teams in everyday life. We’re especially interested in the insight our speakers will give on practical, everyday use.
As the saying goes, a ship and its crew are only as good as its captain. But who is the captain in an agile structure anyway? What skills and abilities do these so-called captains need to have to ensure that everyone works well together. We’ll discuss how to develop soft skills to be better leaders.
Agile Product Management
Agile product management, product ownership, and projects – how do they all fit together? And how much ownership is in the DNA of a product owner who has to struggle with roadmaps and timelines? These are only two facets of many, which we want to look at in the new track Agile Product Management. J. S. as a long-time product owner, is looking forward to your submissions and will get down to the nitty-gritty with you.
There are already many active Agile teams. However, it’s often problematic when you work in the context of a large corporation or looking for broad support from within the organization. The Scaled Agile Framework wants to address this issue and offer approaches to collaborating internally and with other teams. These frameworks are often criticized because many people see them as a blueprint and try to carbon copy them without any thought. Felix Rüssel of KEGON acts as a mediator to help us look at both sides of the Agile equation. He will give us an objective view of what Agile is (or isn’t) and share his knowledge on how to use it in our daily business.
Digital Workplace with Atlassian Software
The digital workplace can strengthen transparency and make sure that all teams are on the same page. We look at approaches and case studies from the world of Atlassian and Atlassian-based tools. We focus on Atlassian Jira and Confluence and the use cases of business teams but also let the techies have their say. This track is particularly suitable for corporate communications staff and all agile and IT teams within organizations.
Transform your Work with Google Cloud
How can organizations be empowered with the right set of working tools to meet the challenges within their markets? We look at solutions and case studies from the world of the Google Cloud and show how IT can be made fast and modern.
In the Culture Lounge, we talk with people who work in innovative, Agile organizations about the various aspects of corporate culture. Their problem-solving methods are often unconventional and unique. They report on their experiences by giving us insight into the positive aspects and challenges concerning such new forms of organization and approaches. They also discuss the effects this can have on people and how they work together in the company. In our interview format, we provide an exciting and uncensored insight into their world of thought, accompanied by questions from the audience.
Dry workshops with never-ending slides, where the speaker talks at you – you can’t learn from that, and you shouldn’t have to subject yourself to it. Marc Bless and Dennis Wagner, the authors of the book Agile Spiele – Kurz & Gut (Agile Games – Short & Good), present you with this track under the motto: “Long-lasting learning through fun.” The sessions on this track range from trying out different agile games, to basic moderation techniques for agile games, to the professional debriefing of intensive agile simulations. The participants will gain practical knowledge and tips and tricks to add to their agile arsenal in their everyday lives.
