Zur Partnerkonferenz Agile Leadership Day

Jeremy Seitz



A family scrum experiment gone wrong

As an engineer and CTO, I was fooled into believing that agile processes and being pragmatic are the key to success. And yet I watched as my own projects and others around me suffered from the same problems. During the last several years I discovered some tricks that seem to work.

Topics covered include:

  • Where teams seem to struggle the most, and what to do about it
  • The art of planning: across teams, and „breaking things down“ into smaller pieces
  • How to inspire people and express vision without harming ownership and ambition
  • The positive culture of failure, psychological safety, learning, and sharing
