Maximum impact, minimum effort

26 June, 09:00 - 10:30, Europasaal A

Abstract: A big government IT project delivered two years ahead of schedule. A fraud detection initiative saving tens of millions more than predicted. An app that helped a city rebuild faster after a major disaster and save ten times more money than expected. Learn how early adopters use impact mapping to create big impacts and minimise effort, from large government departments to innovative consultancies and small startups.

This talk is based on an extensive research with commercial organisations, government departments and non-profit agencies from all over the world. Gojko will present real-world case studies and distill their experience into useful tips that will enable you to speed up adoption, avoid common pitfalls and reach your goals faster.

Why Agile

Agile has arrived. But while many nowadays agree that being agile is favorable, being agile for agility’s sake is not the goal. In this track, we want to have a look at the reasons for being agile and if they have remained the same over the years since the Agile Manifesto was created.

Case Studies

Theory is fine – and many presentations will contain an abundance of real-life examples. In this track we focus on practical examples. Approaches, results and stories from case studies will be shared to give you the possibility to learn from firsthand experience.

Making work more fun is a great way to motivate people. Games and gamification are being used in agile to achieve even better results. In this track, the audience will be inspired with new and old ideas on how to get work done playfully, change mindsets, and retrospect on existing situations.
