AgileAus reaches 15th year supported by volunteers

There are three months to go until AgileAus23 happens in Sydney! And as we reveal the speakers chosen to tell their stories on the AgileAus stage this year, it is a good time to reflect on the journey so far.

Support ramps up for AgileAus23 speakers

One of the best things about speaking at AgileAus is the people you meet. This will be even more the case in 2023, as speakers will have the opportunity to meet, share and learn with a great line-up of fellow AgileAus23 speakers, well before they hit the stage in August!

Here’s to building the best AgileAus program yet!

Excitement is building as we get ready to open up for expressions of interest (EOIs) from those who would like to speak at this year’s AgileAus23 Conference!

Want to tell your story at AgileAus23?

Telling our stories is how we try to make sense of our past, our present and find our future path. It is the stories of war, flood and fire and injustice that inspire us to pursue sustainability, peace and equality.

Making sense of Servant Leadership

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development has nothing to say about leadership. However, when we talk about leadership for agility, we usually talk about Servant Leadership. I think we can lay the blame for this on Scrum.

What is leadership?

What is leadership?

In general, leadership seems to be about influencing others to do something. Inspiration or motivation may be the tools of leadership influence, and there are certainly others that can be used (such as coercion or power).

Have an idea for a talk for AgileAus21 which will be held at the Hilton Sydney on 23-24 August 2021?

For TWO WEEKS ONLY, we’re looking for speaker EOIs that have the potential to represent, nourish and inspire the Australian Agile community.

I am going to be running a circle on the topic of Shared Leadership. I thought it might be useful to give some information on this topic, so you know what you are in for, or even if you’re interested.

Reflections of ResponsibleTech Summit 2020

Reflections of ResponsibleTech Summit 2020

Agile is all about putting the user at the centre of all we do. But recognising the humanity of the user is not something we always consider. Given how our humanity is being challenged on so many levels right now, it seemed the perfect opportunity for the AgileAus community to come together (virtually) for ResponsibleTech Summit 2020.
