9:00 - 9:45 - Niels Pflaeging
Organize for Complexity: How our organizations will become Agile, radically decentralized, and networked sooner than we think

9:55 - 10:40 - Esther Derby
KEYNOTE: Six Rules for Change

10:50 - 11:35 - Geoff Wilson
Innovation is 99% Iteration: How Top Companies use Lean Teams to Succeed at Innovation
Digital innovation is no longer about the big idea. Geoff has helped companies succeed at innovation by getting new ideas to market quickly and rapidly iterating based on user behavior and feedback. He will share these stories and talk about how any organization can implement these philosophies to succeed at innovation.

11:45 - 12:30 - Doc Norton
Dynamic Teams: Fluidity for the Win!
Dynamic teams, where people are free to move more rapidly from small group to small group are proving quite effective. Explore why dynamic teams may be a better fit for today’s work environment. Doc will also talk a bit about organizations that are operating successfully under dynamic team models.

12:40 - 13:25 - Lisette Sutherland
Stories of Remote Teams Doing Great Things
Now that information is likely accessible from anywhere, we have the opportunity to play with new ways of working and new business models. Lisette discusses how companies are organizing themselves to work together remotely with examples of new kinds of business models, digital nomads, virtual worlds, and examples of global collaboration.

13:35 - 14:20 - Jurgen Appelo
Managing For Happiness
The research is clear: happy workers are more productive workers. Managing for Happiness is about concrete management advice for all workers. In this session, Jurgen will show you how to manage the system, not the people. This is not only relevant for managers, but for everyone who is concerned about the organization.

14:30 - 15:15 - Jason Yip
An Outsider Assessment of Spotify Culture by an Insider
Spotify has become a role model for Agile organizations, mostly due to the publishing of the Spotify Engineering Culture videos. The reality is more nuanced and more interesting that what is publicly presented. As an Agile Coach at Spotify NYC, Jason will present his assessment of the Spotify Culture from the perspective of an external consultant with insider insight.

15:25 - 16:10 - Chris Fussell and Rachel Mendelowitz
KEYNOTE: Simple to Complex: Lessons from the Battlefield to Business
Chris and Rachel discuss complexity theory, lessons learned from Special Forces, and the Team of Teams approach to build organizational adaptability that highlights the root causes of the many challenges businesses face and outlines the transformation in both behaviors and process required for leaders to overcome them.

16:20 - 17:00 - Johanna Rothman
Scaling Agile Projects to Programs: Small-World Networks of Autonomy, Collaboration, and Exploration
We hear a lot about “scaling” Agile these days. We have frameworks that lumber, scaled meetings that provide dubious value, and management who still want to know when we will be done. In this talk, Johanna will discuss how to create your small-world networks, so you can deliver great products with multiple teams.
