5 Whys Challenge – Ofer Erez

Almost there! The conference is just days away. But we got a last message for you: change is upon us.    Organizations that understand that will act on this change. Others react. And if you want to be on the first side, maybe you should come to Ofer Erez‘s talk on “Teal organizations“.   But…

5 Whys Challenge – Dana Pylayeva

We’re inching closer to the conference, and I feel the excitement all the way from the US. That’s right, we’ve got 3 guest from the US this time, one of those is Dana. And Dana is not coming empty handed. If everything goes right, and Dana goes through customs without a hitch, she’s bringing Legos…

5 Whys Challenge – Amit Yedidia

Amit is also returning from a previous conference. This time he’s going to have a short talk about AGILEGO. That’s agile + Lego. These are two of my favorite things (Cue Julie Andrews).   Sprint planning and Lego – what can go wrong? If anything, it will make yuou think. And this is what #APIL is all…

5 Whys Challenge – Ori Bendet

Sometimes you have such an experience at the conference, you need to double the effort. Ori was here last year, and this time he’s giving both a session “Becoming the MVP of your MVP” and a lightning talk “Agile lessons to learn from Star Wars“. Well, if MVPs were not interesting to me (and they…

5 Whys Challenge – Uri Nativ

Every year we’re trying a whole bunch of new stuff at the conference. Here’s one we haven’t tried before: An Israeli keynote speaker.  But if we’re making this kind of an effort, let’s make it a good one. Uri Nativ is a great speaker, and comes from our agile world. And for his keynote, he’s…

5 Whys Challenge – Yehoshua Blank

So you’re going to a serious conference. It’s an agile conference so having BDD on the program makes sense. Until you realize that the the B stands for Balloons. “Balloon Driven Development“. What kind of session is that?  Well it is about BDD, and Yehoshua Blank has decided that the best way to go back to…

5 Whys Challenge – Anat Alon

One of the new voices this year at the conference is Anat. Her topic is quite a mouthful: she’s going to talk about “NLP – A tool to drive change” (that’s Neuro Linguistic Programming). Apart from being sounding heavy (which it is, it’s a huge science topic) it also relates directly to a problem we…

5 Whys Challenge – Jessie Shternshus

It’s time to talk keynotes, and we’re very proud to have Jessie on board.  I met Jessie a few years ago in a developer conference, and she was running a very strange workshop for such a place. It was about how to use improv comedy techniques in a team. I mean, sure, I’ve seen improv…

5 Whys Challenge – Noam Kfir

Noam is a returning voice here at the conference. We seem to like him. This time, he picked the interesting topic “Agile mind games and the art of self delusion“. We’re all for kinds of playing here, so mind-games fit right there in the program. Noam took the challenge last time, but what news can he…

5 Whys Challenge – Shunit Metz

What would agile be without teamwork? Well, remember the “Individual and interactions” thing? Individuals are humans, and as such they tend to ask questions, like: “Why should I be doing this?”. Or “Do I have to work with this guy again?”. You know, questions relating to teamwork. Teams may need rulebooks on how to work…
