    From Good to Great: Creating a Culture of Continuous Improvement.
    Keynote: Jürgen De Smet
    read more close arrow

    In this talk, we'll explore how to break through the barriers that prevent teams and organizations from achieving true continuous improvement in the LeSS framework. From creating a safe space for experimentation to empowering teams to take ownership of their processes, we'll discuss practical strategies for building a culture of continuous improvement that will take your LeSS implementation from good to great.

    I help leaders of large organizations deliver on their commitments to high performance. Before, during and after an Agile adoption like LeSS, SAFe, Scrum at Scale, DAD or any kind of Lean transformation, large organizations often find that they need to de-scale and simplify organizational structures and processes. I function as an Executive-level guide for companies approaching their second growth phase. Industry leaders in banking, insurance, telecommunications, healthcare, utilities, media and agriculture hire me to help remove obstacles in their path to innovation. Read more

    What did we achieve  as a 30+ IT team during 18 months?
    We started from the very beginning without Scrum or Less. We built teams, trust, decisiveness and predictability. And why we couldn't succeed.

    Seeing the Whole: Systems Thinking as Your Superpower.
    Krzysztof Niewiński
    read more close arrow

    Ever wondered why some problems stubbornly persist and corrective actions backfire? Noticed how local improvements in one department can spark issues in another part of the company? How can we broaden our perception, anticipate consequences sooner, and act more integrally?

    Come explore the fundamentals of Systems Thinking - the discipline of seeing the whole.

    During the talk, you'll learn what is Systems Thinking and how it can shift the way you make decisions. I'll show you how to understand situations better and forecast what comes next. Using a real-life example, we'll create a Causal Loop Diagram to illustrate how 'quick fixes' can sometimes do more harm than good, and how to act more wisely with long-term effects in mind.

    Lean Software Development - what can we learn from Toyota?
    Tomasz Wykowski
    read more close arrow

    How can concepts from factories be used by knowledge workers? Or maybe, these two words differ too much?

    Toyota Production System (often called Lean) is well known in the West since the 1980s. However, many companies still struggle to apply these ideas to more creative areas of knowledge management, such as software development, sales, or marketing. 

     For over a decade, Tomasz has been learning Lean tools, practices, and principles and translating them into his customers’ context. He had a chance to visit the market leaders and learn their success and failure stories. He spoke with their first-line employees, managers, and CEOs in his quest to better understand how to create successful organizations.

     During his talk, he’ll share stories, and specific tools, and show how they can be applied to manage non-physical work, such as software development, especially in the context of large-scale. You’ll leave this session knowing how to look for inefficiencies in your system and what to do about them.

    Tomasz Wykowski is an Agile Coach, Certified Scrum Trainer accredited by Scrum Alliance, and Certified LeSS Coach accredited by LeSS Company. Working with leaders of companies from startups to international organizations, he helps them understand the dynamic of their system, find inefficiencies and discover better ways to deliver amazing products and services. He loves experimenting and applying agile concepts in marketing, sales, customer support, and hardware development.     In 2010, Tomasz founded ProCognita, a Polish-based company, to help people build extraordinary organizations through Agile Coaching and training. He shares his thoughts and experiences through conferences, meetups, company blog, and podcast. Read more
