Agile Leader Day 2018 - Transformation | Helsinki | torstai, 11. lokakuu 2018

Ever felt like you’d really want to learn and discuss the hard, management level stuff regarding digital transformations and agile ways of working? That listening to coaches and consultants talking about finesses sometimes sounds like they really don’t know what you as a leader are dealing with? Agile Leader Day is the answer.
What would you think about participating in a conference which is real and raw, content only from the people who lead transformations, are CEOs or Executives leading business units towards agile? We set up an agile conference from leaders to leaders. We invited VPs and CEOs to talk about leading transformations and organization level insights from their journeys.
Agile Leader Day, Helsinki, 11th of October 2018
This day is for leaders. This day is for the ones sitting on the bag of cash. This day is for the person who’s responsibility it is to succeed in a transformation. This day is for the company CEO who is wondering what to do next. This day is for you.
We are keeping the event small and full of sharing and reflection, discussion and networking. No consultants or coaches speaking about agile finesses. No one selling you anything. Only content from your peers.

Formulating business development activities in the bank into an agile development unit
In this talk Steffen will walk us through the initial thinking in how to formulate business development activities in the bank into an agile development unit, called the Ocean. Business development happens throughout the bank, impacts clients in five countries and is delivered through virtual, cross functional teams coming together for delivering incremental projects aiming for realizing rapidly specific business value, instead of doing the traditional massive projects. The Ocean has been complied starting with elements from “the Spotify model”, and has plenty of own Nordea-twists in it.
You will hear a story about the model in action, successes and learnings of the adoption and implementation journey. This is the perspective of the change team, working in the interface between sponsors, Banking heads in different countries, experts that want to be part of the development teams, large parent company HR, management, compliance and organizational practices which are not always up to date regarding agile work. Ocean is delivering, and it is developed in increments, too.
Navigating a self-directive work environment – getting lost and finding oneself again.
 What do you do when you find yourself in a situation, where you see something could or should be done to develop the company, but nobody owns it and everyone owns it? How do you progress ideas and get people to buy in and pitch in with their own thinking? Who gets things done in a self-organized company when there are just a minor level of roles defined and strict responsibilities documented? How can you use your expertise, when there is no clear boundary on where you should be using it and no clear mandate on who is deciding? Joining this kind of a workplace can be tough. Joonas will in this talk shed light on the individual level experience, recalibrating needs for people joining from more traditional companies and ways how to support individuals on this journey towards flat and self-organized work communities. Some tips on how to allow people to be themselves with a big heart and creating a trusting atmosphere, and simultaneously focus on delivering value to clients.
A Case Study in Building a Culture of Continuous Improvement
Continuous improvement is the goal of agile teams. But what does it look like when we create a continuous improvement strategy beyond our agile teams and bring it to the company level? Working at Spotify, Kevin Goldsmith saw the benefits of its fantastic continuous improvement culture. When he joined Avvo as its new CTO, his primary goal was to help Avvo create that culture for itself. In this session, Kevin will show what Avvo has done to build a foundation for a continuous improvement culture. He’ll explore the frameworks used to create highly engaged teams and share the organizational and process models that support and empower individuals and groups to own and drive improvements to make themselves more efficient and the company a better place to work. You'll leave with a template to help you build a continuous improvement culture in your company.
