Welcome & Keynote

"Flow" with Ryan Lockard

14 of the 17 co-authors of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development were interviewed in 2016-17 for a special podcast. The goal was to capture the intent of the authors and to recount the events of Snowbird, where the co-authors gathered and wrote what has become known as the Agile Manifesto.

What emerged from the interviews was much more. Ryan has unearthed reasons why the event was needed, the original vision of the authors, and key insights often overlooked or missed. Let's hear the real story behind and reflect on the rise pitfalls of Agile in industry…and what we can do to reclaim it.

Keynote & Closing

"Six Rules of Change" with Esther Derby

Change is often much slower than hoped for and more painful than anticipated. In the end, you may be left with feelings of frustration and dismay rather than the benefits you hoped for. How can we make change more successful? More enlivening?

Esther has distilled principles for successful transformation into Six Rules for Change. These principles address both the complexity of the organization and the complexity of the human experience. They provide touch-points to guide Change Artists as they support and enable change in their organizations.
