Agile Introduction and Overview

When: 23/10/18 19:00 - 21:15 (doors open at 18:30)

Where: TBD

Speaker: Sabine Canditt

Language: English

 

What do women need to know about Agile?


Introducing Agile approaches into our companies can result in many benefits, for example:

  • Higher product quality

  • Higher customer satisfaction

  • Increased project control and visibility

  • Reduced risks

  • Faster ROI

However, and perhaps more importantly, Agile is fundamentally changing the way in which we work together. The challenge for each of us is to not just be impacted by this change but to be an active part of it.  

Agile offers many interesting and rewarding job opportunities, however women are under-represented in the growing Agile community. What’s more, the Agile community could benefit from greater diversity and individuals with strong “soft skills”.

Having more women in Agile has to be a win:win!

In this workshop with Sabine Canditt presents the key Agile concepts and buzzwords and gives you the opportunity to experience Agile for yourself. Finally you can explore Agile career and education options. 

The interactive workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Agile - What is it? Why is it important?

  • Scrum, Kanban, Design Thinking, etc - What do all those Agile buzzwords actually mean?

  • Experience it yourself - Agile simulation exercise.

  • Questions and Answers - hear real life agile stories

  • Education and certification options


A unique feature of this workshop is that it provides an opportunity for professional women to network with each other – sharing our experiences, our challenges and our knowledge.

AGILE CULTURE - THE NUMBER 1 LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE

When: 13/09/18 19:00 - 20:15 (doors open at 18:30)

Where: cegeka, Putzbrunner Str. 71, Munchen

Facilitators: Sabine Canditt, Chrys Jerrett

Language: English

 

The responsibility of leaders is to drive culture within their organisations.

 

VersionOne’s State of Agile Report states that the number one challenge in implementing an Agile culture within an organisation is that the... “Company philosophy or culture is at odds with core agile values”. And, unfortunately, the data shows that it is getting worse, not better. It appears that the current Agile frameworks, methods and their implementations are not adequately addressing this challenge.

Therefore we, as leaders, may need to take a different approach to get the results that we want.

 

A common learning from successful transitions is that the journey will be unique to each organisation.

 

In this workshop we will tackle the problems together, discovering new insights and approaches to help leaders effectively drive an Agile Culture into their organisations.

 

As a result of this workshop you will: 

- Explore and discover what an Agile Culture means to you. 

- Learn how to create a tailored strategy for successfully implementing an Agile Culture within your organization.

 

- Learn how to involve everybody in the change and get buy-in.

 

 

We will also introduce you to ORSC(™) (Organisation and Relationship System Coaching), a coaching model for sustainable and resilient systems. This model helps leaders to work with the whole relationship system, recognising that this system is naturally self-organising and continually evolving.

Do you have the drive and desire to become a great leader?

 

As we progress in our careers we move into leadership roles, whether that is classical management and executive roles or thought leadership – our role is to provide the inspiration that takes us, our colleagues and our organisations to the next level.

This session provides an opportunity to look at some of the domains of leadership and to assess yourself against them. It helps you to be aware of where you are doing well and to identify areas where you can grow as an individual and as a leader.

 

 

Come along and enjoy this opportunity for women (and men) to network – sharing our experiences, our challenges and our knowledge with one another.

 



Self Empowerment Workshop for Women (in English)

Where: freiraum München, Saarstr. 5, 80797 München

 When: 21/06/18 19:00 – 21:30

 

Your Success begins with You.

 

Do you enjoy the challenge of learning and developing yourself and are you are fully committed to being successful? If you are self-aware then you know that there are aspects of your style that work well, and there are others that you would like to improve.

 

Research confirms that the key determinant of career success is your emotional and social intelligence. It doesn’t matter how smart you are, if you don’t have yourself “together” and if you’re not conscious of, and intentional about, your impact on others then this will be a limiting factor in your career and very probably other areas in your life.

 

This workshop provides an opportunity to bring new awareness and understanding to these key areas, and to identify how you can grow as an individual, a professional and as a leader.

 

A unique feature of this workshop is that it provides a cool place for professional women to network among ourselves – sharing our experiences, our challenges and our knowledge with one another.

 

Note: While this workshop builds on the material discussed in the Women’s Leadership Assessment Workshop, it is not necessary to have attended this event.

Leadership Assessment Workshop for Business Women

Where: freiraum München, Saarstr. 5, 80797 München

When: 19/04/18 19:00 – 21:30

 

Do you have the drive and desire to become a great leader?

 

As we progress in our careers we move into leadership roles, whether that is classical management and executive roles or thought leadership – our role is to provide the inspiration that takes us, our colleagues and our organisation to the next level.
 
Often people are promoted into these roles without fully understanding the different skill sets required to be successful. The so called “Peter Principle” where people rise to their level of incompetence can be seen in many organisations.  People fail simply because they do not recognise or develop the different skills required at the next level.

 

Do you enjoy the challenge of learning and developing yourself and are you are fully committed to being successful? If you are self-aware then you know that there are aspects of your leadership style that work well, and there are others that you would like to improve.

 

This workshop provides an opportunity to look at the various domains of leadership and to assess yourself against them. It helps you to be aware of where you are doing well and to identify areas where you can grow as an individual and as a leader.
