Data, not Opinions: The Psychometrics of Team and Organisational Dynamics
Data, not Opinions: The Psychometrics of Team and Organisational Dynamics

"If you can't measure it, you can't improve it." Although it is (relatively) easy to measure objectively quantifiable decision criteria such as profit, how does one measure "soft" attributes, such as psychological safety or team dynamics, to judge an intervention's success?

This talk will present insights into the practical application of leading-edge research into what makes intelligent, high-performing teams and organisations, exploring the science behind the current buzzwords of psychological safety, diversity, and empathy.

Target Audience: Managers, Coaches, ScrumMasters
Prerequisites: None
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract:
"If you can't measure it, you can't improve it." This quote, attributed to Peter Drucker, emphasises that the ability to measure something is essential for seeing changes in it. Although it is (relatively) easy to measure objectively quantifiable decision criteria such as profit, how does one measure "soft" attributes, such as psychological safety or team dynamics, to judge an intervention's success? The problem with most team/organisational assessments is that they say more about the persons who designed the evaluation (and what they want to sell) than about the persons taking it.

This talk will present insights into the practical application of leading-edge research into what makes intelligent, high-performing teams and organisations, exploring the science behind the current buzzwords of psychological safety, diversity, and empathy.

A quiet and reserved researcher and practitioner with over 25 years experience, Joseph Pelrine is considered by cognoscenti to be one of the pioneers and top experts on Agile methods. As a psychologist, his focus on people and his experience in applying leading-edge techniques from social complexity and psychology to process optimisation goes far beyond the domain of software development, and extends to the whole organisation.

Trauma-informed Agile – How I Adapted my Practice to Latest Knowledge in Psychology
Trauma-informed Agile – How I Adapted my Practice to Latest Knowledge in Psychology

In recent decades, our scientific and clinical understanding of how our nervous system works has increased tremendously. I’ve recently completed an education for trauma-informed work (NARM informed professional). It has changed many key aspects of how I teach and coach and will continue to have a large impact.

In this session, I’m presenting those key learnings, connecting them to well-known parts of Agile knowledge and inviting into a discussion of what a more trauma-informed approach to leading people in Agile organisations could look like.

Target Audience: All kinds of Leaders, Product Owners, People Managers, Decision Makers, Coaches, Scrum Masters
Prerequisites: No prerequisites
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract:
In recent decades, our scientific and clinical understanding of how our nervous system develops and works has increased tremendously. Its implications are so profound, they radiate far beyond the field of psychology. Topics such as trauma-informed law, trauma-informed volleyball coaching, legal counseling, education, social activism have arisen. It is time to think about how it affects leadership.

Your speaker Anton, a Scrum trainer and coach, has recently completed a NARM-informed professional education. It has tremendously changed some key aspects of how he leads, teaches and coaches and will surely continue to have a large impact. In this session, he is presenting those key learning, connects them to well-known parts of Agile knowledge and invites into a discussion of what a more trauma-informed approach to leadership could look like.

In this talk you will:
•    experience a more calmer vulnerable space
•    learn what developmental trauma is and how it plays out in the workplace
•    learn about regulation and states of our nervous systems and its connection to creativity and cognitive capacity
•    get a new angle to think and act about topics such as responsibility, clarification of assignments and setting goals, teaching, mentoring and more
•    reflect on how these topics affects your own line of work and exchange on ideas

Anton Skornyakov is an Agile Coach and CST® for Scrum Alliance®, an experienced speaker and facilitator at many conferences, user groups for topics around Agile, facilitation, non-violent communication and leadership. Largest spaces were GSG Munic 2016, GSG Vienna 2019, OOP Munic 2019. However, there were many more at local conferences, user groups and meetups.
Most relevant to the topic Anton is speaking about, is his recently finished education as a NARM®-informed professional with the NARM® Training Institute. NeuroAffective Relational Model® (NARM®) is a unique and powerful approach to developmental trauma.

The Passions of Programming
The Passions of Programming

"We're looking for passionate programmers!" says the job ad. Passion is used to evoke single-mindedness, drive and intensity. There is more than one kind of passion, and when raw passion is tempered with compassion and dispassion, we start to see a more balanced way of development.

Good development draws on both creativity and rationality, on both experience and experimentation, on both focus and connection, on both individual skill and group intelligence. Let's explore the many passions of programming.

Target Audience: Developers, Architects, Managers, Coaches, Leaders
Prerequisites: No specific prerequisites
Level: Advanced

Extended Abstract:
"We're looking for passionate programmers!" says the job ad. For a love-in or a development role? Passion is used to evoke single-mindedness, drive and intensity, but it also has many other meanings, surely not all of which can be intended. Love aside, passion also spills over into irrationality, aggression — e.g., crimes of passion — and unconditional and unquestioning pursuit of ideas. Our acceptance of this word and this quality should be partial and conditional. But there is more than one kind of passion, and when raw passion is tempered with compassion and dispassion, we start to see a more balanced way of development.

Good development draws on both creativity and rationality, on both experience and experimentation, on both focus and connection, on both individual skill and group intelligence. The dry language of productivity needs to admit the possibility of enjoyment; the culture of burn-out needs to give way to humanity and empathy. Let's explore the many passions of programming.

Kevlin Henney is an independent consultant, speaker, writer and trainer. His development interests are in programming, practice and people. He is co-author of two volumes in the ”Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture” series, and editor and contributor for multiple books in the ”97 Things” series. He lives in Bristol and online.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Theoretical and Practical Reflections on Finding the Right Balance in your Organization
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Theoretical and Practical Reflections on Finding the Right Balance in your Organization

This talk covers the fundamentals of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), including key definitions and statistics. Moreover, the link between DEI, sustainability, and innovation will be made, including reflections on the importance but also complexity of finding a balance.

As part of this talk, I will link theory and research to my work as the Global Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in a fintech company, including giving practical examples of how we are embedding DEI into our organization.

Target Audience: People Leaders, Managers, Decision Makers, C-suite
Prerequisites: Open-mindedness, interest in DEI
Level: Basic

Extended Abstract:
What does diversity, equity, and inclusion have to do with sustainability and this year’s conference focus on “finding the right balance?” Everything.

In this talk, I will cover the basics of D, E, and I including definitions and statistics, including introducing various “diversity dimensions” and the concept of “intersectionality.” Then, I will link the DEI agenda to the people sustainability agenda, including showing how the world is already diverse and if your organization is not: how you are likely missing out on learning, development, innovation, user experience knowledge, and even market share.

In doing so, I will link theory and statistics to my work as Global Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in a fintech company, including giving practical examples on how we are embedding DEI into processes and policies. Finally, I will give reflections on how DEI is a journey that also must be balanced and prioritized, just as any other business priority, before opening up to audience questions.

Elizabeth Benedict Christensen, Ph.D. has extensive theoretical and practical experience in diversity, equity, and inclusion in the academic and business worlds. Elizabeth has taught at university-level about Diversity, Cultural Analysis, Communication, Research Methods and beyond. She completed a Ph.D. on sense of belonging before returning to the business world in 2017 to bridge theory with practice, including sharing her passion for DEI globally.

Head ‘n’ HeartOps – A User's Guide to Emotions without “System Crashes”
Head ‘n’ HeartOps – A User's Guide to Emotions without “System Crashes”

You have emotions? Congrats, you are a (professional) human being! Now, how can you actually handle your emotions smartly in our still tech- & tool-focused IT world?

In professional situations like:
- dealing with human "legacy experiences"
- integrating "personal silos"
- interacting with ease with other human beings
- tackling stressful situations (e.g. conflicts) within a team

This session offers a set of science-based, pragmatic tools that are (almost) always accessible - like a Swiss Pocket Knife for engineers (and other humans :-)).

Target Audience: Developers, Architects, System Engineers, Managers of all kind, Human Beings :)
Prerequisites: Curiosity and openness for new ways of thinking (and behaviour)
Level: Basic

Extended Abstract:
Oftentimes people think that having emotions or even “being emotional” means being unprofessional, being irrational or even being weak. That is wrong!

Being able to consciously deal with (your) emotions is a (professional) strength that can be learned and practised.

•    It contributes to better teamwork.
•    It promotes individual health.
•    It even is a leadership quality.

Join this session to bridge potential gaps between "tech" and "humans", between "hard" and "soft", between "us" and "them". Join and start right now with finding the 'right' balance...
