  • Morning Lean Coffee (leancoffee.org) to discuss your Lean and Agile ideas, challenges and solutions before the workday starts.

    This month we a trialling a slightly earlier start time of 7.45 to allow enough time for every to get away and start work after the call. The Zoom call will be open from 7.30.

    Everyone is welcome and we usually have a good mix of people from different backgrounds so if you have something you'd like to talk about, or you just want to listen and learn, then please join us.

    Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, we will be running this as a Zoom event for the foreseeable future. We also use Lean Coffee Table (www.leancoffeetable.com) to simulate a face-to-face meeting.

    Of course, there's no substitute for a Sharpie and a Post-it note but we have found Lean Coffee Table comes a very close second.

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with our good friend and author of newly available "The New Normal: AO concepts and patterns of 21st Century Agile Organizations".

    "It took more than ten years for me to allow myself to put my ideas on paper. Behind the fantasy of writing “the game changer, my intention was handing over the relay stick to the community."

    What is Agile? What does it mean “Agile done”? Are there any indicators to get there?

    The new normal initiates the concept of paradigm shift. My session is about explaining how Agile might be part of the solution to design a better future.

    Learning Objectives:

    What can our attendees expect to take away from the session?

    * Get a different interpretation of the very meaning of Agile
    * Get a tool to design the alliance between management, customer and operations
    * Accept that Agile isn't the goal, it is the way to reach a goal
    * Open the door to Agile Organisational Design and continuous re-...

  • The “Art and Science” of Analytics and Data Science: We should all be like Leonardo

    Point of the talk: This is drawn primarily from experiences in the domain of customer insight and customer experience. We think of analytics mainly as a hard ‘science’ but there is a growing importance to consider some more intangible sides to analytics: why do customers think the way they do (e.g. behavioural economics), why do stakeholders make decisions the way they do (e.g. influencing senior decision-makers)?

    • What are some areas where the ‘art of analytics’ is often underplayed?
    • What are some areas where the ‘science of persuasion’ is often underused?
    • How can these be melded in interesting ways?
    • Why do many firms fail to do this?
    • What could you do about this in your teams / careers?

    Presenter - Nick Hall - www.linkedin.com

    For the last 6 years Nick has led the Barclays Analytics Centre of Excellence – a team of 140+ analytics and data science professionals w...

  • We usually run monthly talks in a pub but we don't really feel like going out right now.

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with the wonderful Tobias Mayer, author of "The People's Scrum'.

    This year life changed, for everyone, suddenly and quite dramatically: home life, community life, social life and work life. At work we’re all doing our best to balance business as usual with ensuing chaos and it’s often a precarious line to walk. More than a porting of methods and practices, knowledge work today, especially the creative aspect (which is most of it!) requires a radical rethink. This is not like that.

    This session, more break-out dialog than lecture, will explore this workplace reinvention from all participant viewpoints, for example what does it mean to move from being a co-located team to being a dynamically-located team? What is lost, what has been gained?

    Learning Objectives:

    What can our attendees expect to take away from the session?

    ● New ways of considering current work practice
    ● New questions!
    ● Strength and camarade...

  • Hi everyone, it's been a little while since our last meetup but we're going to pick the schedule back up with a couple of sessions on organising your workplace, mapping a union and having those initial conversations with co-workers.

    How do you start to unionise? What are your responses to people who are apprehensive? How do you pinpoint the issues and gather support? Get tips on these questions (and more!) and start to mould your workplace into a fairer and more equal space for everyone.

    We're running two sessions - one in the afternoon (1pm-3pm) and another in the evening (6pm-8pm), so pick whichever one fits your schedule.

  • This month we have author, coach, and tester Rob Meaney joining us for a talk on the role of testing and observability in delivering solutions.

    Description: Dealing effectively with both the risks we can imagine and the realities we can not.

    "A whole team focus on Testability and Operability is fundamental to happy, high-performance teams, a successful business, and satisfied customers."

    When I started in the Software Industry 15 years ago we used to physically burn, package and ship releases to our customers on disc. There was an enormous cost to failure – so much so that we spent weeks, and sometimes months, testing before each release. Once the release was finally shipped there was a sense of relief there was nothing more I could do. I lived by the mantra that “no news is good news” when it came to customer feedback.

    Today, however, we are faced by an entirely new set of challenges and risks. We find ourselves testing in an increasingly complex world where everything is connecte...
