About Agile Tour Brussels

Agile Tour Brussels is one of the biggest conferences about agility in Belgium.

We are a part of the Agile Tour, a series of non-profit events over several cities throughout October and December.

Over the years we welcomed speakers and participants from different continents.

The goal: to spread the agile values, principles and practices, to share experiences and to strengthen the community.

The talks and workshops should cover - but not only:

  • Agile Everywhere
  • Agile Management & Leadership
  • Coaching & Facilitation
  • Product Management
  • Technical Excellence
  • Trends

This year, with the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19, we had to innovate and the opportunity comes to us to make the conference online and open our talks to the whole planet! Join us this year to share your ideas and experiences with a vibrant community of Agile practitioners!

Programme


09:00 to 09:50

Art of Teams

Conference Room A
Successful teams have clarity, care about the results, understand their impact, have valuable conflicts, experience trust, and are reliable. In this talk, Ralph will describe why the components are essential and how to implement and also share tools and practices. Based on the book Art of Teams.

10:00 to 10:50

Agile Coaching: my NLP toolbox

Conference Room A
Is there a single coaching method? Should we limit ourselves to the proposed frameworks? Although these frameworks are great tools, I am convinced that there are many possible methods and approaches to coaching and leading human groups.

11:00 to 11:50

Human Complexity: Predictably unpredictable software development

Conference Room A
This session presents a landscape of practices inspired by Human-Complexity that can be employed in everyday software and digital products development. And present a new approach that consists of acting our way into the new Human-Complexity thinking.

13:00 to 13:50

Liberate Your Remote Team to High Performance; How to revolutionize teams employing liberating structures to produce awesome results?

Conference Room A
Do you know how to empower remote team communication to capture room intelligence? Or are your remote interactions basic, excruciating and lack results?. Join me as we discover, explore, and experience a world of unexpected engagement, collaboration and guaranteed high performance team results.

14:00 to 14:50

The clash between Agile, DevOps and Quality Assurance

Conference Room A
While the DevOps is a relatively new approach, quality assurance and testing are a well-known discipline inside software projects and how they affected the Agile process. I will share experience of 5 projects. And help to understand how DevOps, QA and Agile approaches interact together.

15:00 to 15:50

Measuring outcomes ... or how to get meaningful metrics

Conference Room A
Many teams still depend on velocity in an aim to understand their team’s progress, unfortunately often driving the wrong behaviours. This session teaches a practical and easy way to get meaningful data that drives the correct behaviour.

16:00 to 16:50

Finding the Sweeet Spot

Conference Room A
Individuals and interactions, working software, customer collaboration, responding to change… If you are familiar with the agile manifesto, you know that these values are on the left side, which we value more. But what about the values on the right? What’s would be the sweet spot between them?

17:00 to 17:50

Boldly go where other generations have not gone before

Conference Room A
Do you know how many generations are in your workplace today? Do you feel that each generation is incentivized differently? So, how can any company have a reward and recognition system that satisfies all? And how does Agile play into it? Come to our talk and learn from our real-life transformations.

18:00 to 18:50

Cultivating a Culture of Creativity, Collaboration, and Captainship!

Conference Room A
High energy chat highlighting how to effectively increase team performance, transform org. culture, and build meaningful legacies through collaborative ownership. Attendees will learn to increase creativity through ownership, improve collaboration through teams, and captainship through character.

11:00 to 11:50

Beyond Copy Paste Agile

Conference Room B
In this session, I will draw in my experiences as a Manager, Product Lead, and Coach designing effective organisations at Spotify. To demonstrate how the three lenses of Systems, Science and Sapiens, help gather broader perspective, ultimately leading to a more effective, longer-lasting, impact.

13:00 to 13:50

Tips from the agile trenches

Conference Room B
We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. This presentation is about helping others, and contains tips I collected from people in the trenches, aka people who are doing it.

How agile are you? Enhacing an Assion Consulting with the Heart of Agile assessment

Conference Room B
Heart of Agile and Assion Consulting have teamed up to bring you a new kind of company assessment to help you adapt the way you work. Focus on 4 pillars:Collaborate,Delivery,Reflect and Improve, and driven by the HOA Compass. Join us and return to work with strong tools to help you lead the agile way.

15:00 to 15:50

Change but start with what you do now

Conference Room B
Like it or not, people resist to change. It’s hard-wired in our brain. The bigger the change, the greater the resistance. In order to change, the gain must be higher than the loss. Or change must be so small it doesn’t feel like change: Start With What You Do Now.

16:00 to 16:50

Creating Cultures of Empathy

Conference Room B
Nothing’s more valuable than our ability to work well together. The key to successful collaboration? Empathy. But few people know how to be empathetic, especially at work. Let’s learn together. This talk explores empathy’s impact in the office and how empathetic communication fosters collaboration.

18:00 to 18:50

Take off your Camouflage: Overcoming Imposter Syndrome and Tokenism to Just be Yourself

Conference Room B
My whole career, I’ve typically been the only woman in the room. I didn’t wanted to be the token female, but as I looked around, I wondered if I truly belonged. I developed camouflage so that I could fit in with my male-counterparts. When is the best time to shed the camo and be ourselves?

Intro to Personal Agility

Conference Room A
What really matters to you in life? How do you spend your time? Personal Agility is a framework to start identifying what really matters and aligning your activities to your purpose. This session is a workshop to explain the core concepts and to get started. We will use breakout rooms.

13:00 to 14:30

Build-Run-Improve-Repeat - How a game can help you learn about DevOps

Conference Room A

Imagine an organization working agile, but time to market is still too long. Management thinks DevOps can help, though. A CI/CD pipeline is what this organization needs, right? Can they really afford to do the wrong investments? Or should they prefer the safe environment of a simulation instead?

The workshop is limited to 7 active participants, with other observing.
