Agile on the Bench 17

location Arnold Circus | 12:30 PM-1:30 PM Wednesday 21 September 2016 (BST)

A friendly, low-fi, lunchtime, outdoor agile meet-up ... on a bench

Agile on the Bench, the best lunchtime, outdoor agile meetup.

What to expect

Agile on the bench is as you may expect, on a bench (well on a few benches), outdoors, in a park. The park also has a bandstand in case it rains.

Being in a park means no tech, there are no laptops or projectors, just the speakers, the attendees and lots of fantastic ideas.

It’s not for profit, which means that it's free for you to attend as speakers and organisers generously donate their time for the love of Agile.

Talks are short, with plenty of time for discussion, asking questions and getting back to work.

And badges… expect badges.

The talks

We schedule two awesome speakers each session who talk about anything related to Agile, people, teams and users. You can read more about the talks below.

Speakers have up to 10mins to convey their message in any way they choose, followed by 5mins for questions.

After the scheduled speakers we have Agile question time, a chance for you to ask the group any questions you have about Agile. Think of them as your agile agony aunts and uncles.

What to bring

  • yourself
  • some lunch
  • your curiosity
  • your burning agile questions
  • appropriate clothing for the weather

  • Jack Collier

    A short history of team charters: Has history taught us anything about codifying culture? Jack will talk about how modern teams should learn the lessons of history and introduce some techniques on how to create and iterate a ‘living' team charter.

  • Sarah Templey

    Insights from teams in nature: Why do most wolves live in packs? Taking inspiration from cognitive and behavioural ecology, there are upsides, and a few downsides, to what wolves gain from living and working as a pack. What insights can be drawn from this and taken into our habitat?
