Roman, can you tell us a bit about yourself and your goals?

I’m one of the “towers of strength”. I am an advisor to leaders who want to build agile organizations. My vision is a world where work is synonymous with passion, and my mission is to change organizations so that their teams are much more productive and enjoy what they do.

The theme of the 13th year of the Conference is “Tips & Tricks”. What are the main ideas you will want to talk about?

My tips & tricks will fall under “how to” and “how not to” run an agile organization.

How would you describe a person marked as Experienced Professional or working with know-how and skill?

Such a person is a partner who knows what I need better than myself. Not only what I think I should want. They present me with various options. Furthermore, they do whatever is necessary with ease and the result exceeds my expectations.

OKRs as a practical glue for Agile and non-Agile parts of the organization

You may have Agile teams in your organization that are happy with the Agile approach, and their delivery and internal communication has improved. They “just” complain about other parts of the organization that are project driven and/or built outside the Agile part, and they do not reflect the need to chop delivery into small parts and (re)prioritize. On the other hand, projects complain about Agile teams not wanting to commit to anything longer than 14 days. On top of all this, it would suit and help your organization if delivery was at least quarterly across all projects and teams.

In this workshop, we will show you how you can use the OKRs framework as a “glue” for these heterogeneous parts and accelerate delivery in your organization. If this sounds interesting to you, or if you want to learn about OKRs in a concise and practical way, you are welcome to join us.
