If yours is like most IT organizations, you are suffering from very common issues:
- Constantly over budget
- Always late on the deliveries
- Low Quality
- Long working hours
- Overworked staff
- Departments that don't work together
- Deliveries that don't satisfy your customers
Agile ways of working are taking the world by storm. "Methodologies" like Scrum, Kanban, The Lean Startup, and eXtreem Programming are being used with great success in IT companies of all sizes. These companies are reporting faster times to market, more flexibility, higher quality, and most importantly more satisfied customers and employees.
Scrum, Kanban, Management 3.0, Lean, what do all these buzzwords mean? Will it be of any use in your organization?
This session is designed to give you an introduction to Kanban, the most lightweight Agile methodology there is, and the second most popular. It won't fix all your problems overnight, but it might start you down a path to doing so.
This session is useful for anyone looking to improve his or her organization, whether it is highly technical, or completely non-technical.

Jeff is an Agile Coach and owner of www.RebelAlliance.se, living in Gothenburg Sweden, but born and raised on Cape Breton Island. He considers the discovery of Agile and Lean to be one of the most defining moments of his life, and helping others to improve their working life not to simply be a job, but a social responsibility. As an Agile Coach he has worked with driving Agile transformations in organizations both small and large.
During his time as a coach in one of the world’s largest telecoms, Ercisson AB, one business unit was able to reduce their global lead-time by 30% and there defects in production by 95%.
After that he moved on to the Swedish government and their Department of Motor Vehicles on systems that are used by the entire country of Sweden, and have a daily turnover of almost 1 million dollars. During his time with "trafikverket" quality, delivery speed, employee and customer satisfaction all increased substantially.
More locally he has provided remote coaching to a team at Dalhousie University which became the first administrative unit at the university to use an Agile approach to projects.
