My keynote presentation with Craig Smith from the LAST Conference in Brisbane called “FailAgility: Recognising and Resetting the Agile Boundaries” is available on Slideshare.

This presentation looks at what FailAgility is and the three levels in organisations where it stems from: Organisation, Leadership and the Coaching / Personal level.


Agile in Education USA

Moving from Physicality to Digitality : the remote agility framework

A wonderful opportunity to talk to the Agile in Education community on how the world has changed , Remote and Hybrid working is now the norm. This however means, we have to embrace the change and design to the context of our organisation’s / personal working circumstances. We no longer can do what we did in physicality in a an environment of digitality ( the art of working and living in a digital environment )and how the remote agility framework (remote:af) enables this.


Remote Governance : Creating a Brighter Future

The wonderful Esther Derby an myself will take you on a journey of how we and the team at remote:af have brought the remote:af® Pillars of Governance and Esther’s SEEM model together to evolve and enable the way organisations govern their systems of work in this remote world.

Heart of Agile: Applying it in the real world

Myself and Phil Gadzinski , one of my fellow Heart Of Agile Consultants were asked to present at the Agile Brisbane Meetup in Australia. We had the idea to interview Dr Alistair Cockburn ( Signatory of the Manifesto and originator of the Heart Of Agile concept) to kick off the session.

The interview resulted in some great insights and explanations of the HOA that even we didn’t expect . The interview and presentation pack are below – please enjoy:

Governing with Agility :

With organisations focused on their ability to maintain profitability and survive, effectiveness and efficiency counts greatly. However to sustain the effectiveness of their Agile teams, leaders must now overcome a new challenge. We need to collectively modernise how we govern our work for both the next normal and a sustained remote working context.

The Ebb and Flow of Organisational Scrum: Reigniting the Original Intent of Agility:

Many organisations are stuck in a loop where the true value of Scrum and Agile cannot be fully realised. In order to move on from this stagnant state, we need to be able to identify and remediate the areas that are holding our organisations back.
