Agile worskhop 18.5.2011 13 – 17: Now I have done “Agile”! What’s next?

Julkaistu 18.2.2011

Join us for an interesting half day with the theme Now I have done “Agile”! What’s next? (18-May-2011, 13:00-17:00, Tietotie 6 Auditorium C1044/Tieto office in Otaniemi, Espoo.

For a large number of years, Agile Software Development has been the popular response from companies wanting to break free from project delays, budget overruns and poor quality. On this day we will make a spot check on how the situation looks after having successfully (?) introduced Agile. What benefits did it bring? Are there any areas where Agile did not deliver as expected? And most importantly: looking ahead from a position of having implemented Agile, what are the challenges and next steps for further advancements?

The purpose of this event is to offer an opportunity to meet speakers from prominent companies in Finland that have introduced Agile. Based on their learnings as well as yours we will have time to bring up interesting questions and topics for discussion. The event will be set up to offer a lot of opportunities for interaction with presenters as well as other participants in an informal setting.

Preliminary program:

  • Opening, Morten Elvang (Nokia, SPIN Chair)
  • Creating a problem solving culture, Jorrit De Groot, Vaisala
  • Lessons from distributed development with agile, Antti Välimäki, Metso Automation
  • Learnings from Agile Enterprise, Tomi Tarvainen, Nokia
  • Beyond Agile/Why Agile is not enough, Sampo Salonen (EVP, Global Delivery & Quality), Tieto Oyj
