Workplace Happiness – Is Business Agility taking us towards happy workplaces?

With the increase in population that separates ‘work’ from ‘life’, as if work is absence of life, it becomes increasingly important to study about what happiness means to people at work, so that they can be made to feel alive in their offices too. This session is aimed at introducing two interesting research studies that aimed to do just that. 

 

This session does not just explain these two research works but also will find the commonalities between these and will engage the audience with discussions using leading questions, thereby bringing out personal examples that they can relate to. This session will also help us understand if Business Agility keeps us happy in the true sense.

Less is More!

Faster time-to-market, better quality and higher efficiency – Organizations have been moving towards Agile predominantly because they realized that delivering features of the highest value can lead to bigger and better successes. But then the ground reality said something else. The success rates were not as high as one would have desired! What could be the reason?

This session by Arun Jayaraman will shed light upon some practices that ensure that you improve your product success rates significantly without impacting your existing capacity and bandwidth.

The Big Picture Workshop

Customer discovery is a whole team activity. You’ve got to get out of the building (or in this case, away from the table!) to find out what customers are willing to pay for. The workshop is going give you an experience of how real customer discovery feels to when you set out one’s journey to conceptualize and build a product that the market wants!

Psychology of Agile Leadership

Organizations are increasingly recognizing that true, deep and enduring agile transformation can happen only if their Leaders embrace the Agile way.  However, leadership agility is not easy. Why? Because we are up against a formidable trio of  history, the way we are brought up and attitudes embedded deep in our psyche. Several social psychology experiments prove this. 

 

In addition,  Leaders may act in completely un-agile ways while secretly believing that they are in fact acting ‘in the best interest of all’.

 

This presentation looks at the three forces leaders are up against, along with some historical context and scientific experiments carried out;  why self-deception is common in leaders; how we can overcome these obstacles to become truly agile leaders;  and what we can expect on the road to ‘self-transformation’.

 

Rapid Panel Round

Open Offices don’t work really… Holocracy, really?! It is most difficult to change the Leader’s mindset…The Rapid Round at the end of the day is one of the highlights of the event. This round is about discussion and debate on some of the most thought provoking topics related to the Agile way of working and is sure to leave you with thoughts worth exploring.
