We all learn from our mistakes, and from others mistakes. And what is better than learning through a picture, as they say "A picture speaks a thousand words". This session is about telling a story through a cartoon, a picture or any creative visual telling your story of fiasco. In the end we take a walk through all the fine arts and vote for the best one. Winners get a prize and opportunity to talk about their story in detail.

Agile without technical practices isn't really agile Bio :
I have more than 15 years experience in the industry and find myself happiest when I'm in small and engaged teams, continually delivering business values. I've learned techniques that help teams engaged and productive. This has become my focus these days in trying to help others learn these techniques to become happier software developers.
I am not an agile coach or scrum master or someone in management level. I am a developer who actually got hit by agile transition. I have been learning agile by trail and error with sweat and tears (no blood so far). I will share with you how the transition has influenced, motivated and deceived me.

“Scrum is simple, Scrum is hard” said Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber, creators of Scrum. While Scrum is just one of the Agile frameworks, Enterprise Agile Transformation is Very Hard but Very Rewarding. Introducing Agile just for development in a software centric organisation is not easy. Going beyond development and that in a non-software centric enterprise with silos and only waterfall experience is a Rocky Road. Following the US and Europe, now Asia is slowly adopting Agile and companies can not ignore Agile if they want to stay competitive. This topic is about the various agile transformation strategies for enterprises, the typical pitfalls and how to avoid these. These lessons are also valid for other companies. Using Scrum+XP+Lean as an example as a target set of practices, but generally applicable to Agile. It combines Agile with Organisational Change approaches. It is of interest to both Management, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Agile Developers, Agile PMs , other Agile Change Agents and generally, Agile Teams. While having some theoretical background, this is a very practice based session, with practical applications, whether you are starting a transformation or are in the middle of it, but not getting all the benefits yet.

"This is the second project developed under the Huskycode's Real Agile project. The project is designed such that participants use their free time to learn Agile practices by shipping a usable product that benefit the Thailand software community. In this case, members meet online to develop and continuously release the Thailand Software Engineering Academy website. The team start with most members having little exposure on Agile and Scrum, learning the practices as they are using it. They are coached by experienced members of Agile66 as Scrum Masters and a product owner. We are excited to share valuable lessons we learned from practicing Agile. The open nature the project allow us to discuss everything happening the project in details, a surprisingly hard thing to come by when sharing Agile experience from the trenches. Everything we say that we do, we can show you how we do it. Real test cases, real deployment scripts, real UAT site and real automated deployment to the production site, along with all the traces process improvements, meetings, aha moments, pitfalls. We believe that the audience, especially those who just start going Agile, would benefit greatly from our real open project"

Many teams and organizations focus on 'doing' Agile, rather than following the principles and values. Hence, they are unable to reap the benefits which Agile is supposed to bring in. Values and principles, like practices and artifacts, are not visible. What is visible is a set of behaviours which indicates that the team is just 'doing' Agile and is not 'being' Agile. This presentations attempts to bring out behaviours which indicate that the team is not following the Agile Values and Principles, and also suggest corrective actions.

As an organization moves through its peaks and valleys of product cycle, one of the issue often faces is its resource movement and management. While there are a healthy number of Scrum Masters in the Organization to cater for the ever growing scrum teams, we also find that project delivery always takes precedence over everything else. This means that unless the organization has full time scrum masters, the energy level exponentially reduces. The notion of having full time scrum masters is still relatively new to many traditional organizations, let alone a troop of scrum masters. We need to prove the case.
The discovery of SM contract workers came in a time when headcount was in constraint. All personnel were deployed to support project work. As a stop gap, we hired Contingent Worker SM. To our amazement, this has turn out really well!
This paper will describe the working model of the Contingent Worker SM in an organization, compares and contrasts the benefits of having such an arrangement. It looks at the limitation of a Contingent Worker SM and we came up with a model to make it work. As an organization who both supports the efficiency of an organization as well as enabling new organization in Lean and Agile, this model has worked out wonderfully. The journey will be shared in this presentation and results shown.As any drugs used… We will also caution this presentation with side effects!
