Let Me Tell You A Story: The Power of Storytelling in Agile Coaching

Picture the last time you were told a great story about change…how did it make you feel? Were you inspired, motivated, or moved to action? As Agile Coaches we must influence teams to look at the world through a new lens, and storytelling is one of the most powerful tools we have available to help us to do this. During this interactive session you will learn the basic framework to construct a powerful story based on the work of great storytellers, including Stephen Denning, Walt Disney, Richard Branson, and Steve Jobs. You will learn about the different types of stories you can tell and which situations are best for each type. Narratives can change the way we view the world, so gather round everyone and let me tell you a story…

Achievement unlocked: how gamification drives organisational culture change

Do you track your steps each day to see if you can hit your goal? Do you count the number of 'likes' associated with a recent LinkedIn post and compare it to others? Or do you just keep track of how many tasks you moved to done on your personal kanban board?

These are all examples of games we use in our daily lives to influence and change our behaviours (both consciously and subconsciously). If we use games to influence how we think and act as individuals, why not use them to influence how we think and act as organisations?

This interactive session explores how gamification in the workplace can positively influence organisational culture change in an agile transformation. You will learn how to tap into a person's intrinsic motivation through games to initiate change across an organisation.

You'll also learn about different gamification techniques and how to leverage them to initiate the change you are trying to achieve. Pull up a seat and let’s play!

Creating Intentional Culture Through Value Based Behaviors

Every system of two or more people has a culture based on the beliefs, thinking, and behaviors associated with the members of that system. Whether culture is clearly stated and followed or not, it will form. Left untended to form on its own, teams and organizations must endure or benefit from the behaviors that result. Just as Agile methodology and the various supporting processes have a structure of beliefs to drive behavior towards working software, so too does a system need beliefs that drive towards a goal.
