XP-days is a grassroots agile conference
For over twenty years now, agile enthusiasts from the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg have organized a yearly conference. On-line last year because of COVID. Live again in 2022, and for the first time in Luxembourg.
ADJUGO participates in the organization, is a sponsor, and actively contributes. And we hope you will join us in Luxembourg, on 8 and 9 September in the Park Hotel Alvisse.
The program is great overall, but we would still like to highlight our own contributions and those of our close partners.
Participatory budgeting and Lean Portfolio Management (Thursday 8, 11:00 - 12:30)
The first of the ADJUGO speakers is ADJUGO's own Chris Verlinden, with a 90-minute session on Lean Portfolio Management and a very interactive experience on Participatory Budgeting (PB).
In PB, people discuss at a table about how they would spend the total budget if it was up to them. We can afterwards take into account all tables and derive a budget from that. First used in some cities in California, SAFe has now adopted it as a way to use the wisdom of the crowd to allocate the budget to what the different stakeholders think is important.
Engagement scan (Thursday 14:30 - 15:30)
Teams expect their leaders, scrum masters, coaches and managers to act in an engaging way, to be inspiring, a role model. Leaders expect from their teams to be self-organising, continuously improving, have fun in their work. To be engaged.
Join our session and experience how to make a team:
– warmly welcome an idea instead of complaining at the coffee machine
– start a creative discussion on how to make things happen instead of swiping it under the rug
Be prepared for a confronting and insightful experience! And leave the session with 5 concrete tips to build more engagement.
The Engagement scan is part of the TeamGrowing approach the ADJUGO uses to help teams grow in their self-organization. Karen en Jurgen are presenting...
Spiral into Teamwork (Thursday 16:00 - 17:30)
Did you ever wonder why some communities/departments/teams live/work well together while others clash? What patterns govern our growth and development? What needs drive us to act the way we do? And what you can learn from that to improve the collaboration and effectiveness of your teams?
In this session, we create a constellation using Spiral Dynamics to better understand the ingredients for team and individual growth and well-being.
Remi-Armand Collaris from our partner Organisatie 4.0 presents the workshop.
Dreaming of a fully aligned multi-team environment? (Friday 11:00 - 12:30)
Ever experienced an energized, motivating big room planning?
In this session we will dream of building a new magic world, we will decide together what it will look like and we will identify and plan the realization of the most valuable items. Hope to see you as a member of one of our magician teams.
You will experience the elements that are needed to engage, motivate people and create a learning organisation. 4 steps that really makes a difference. After each step we will reflect back to reality.
