  • La storia di perfezione – Ferrari.

    Or why I wanted to invite Ferrari to Agilia Conference. Since 2010 we organize Agilia Conference. Our original attempt was to inspire and convince people to make their organizations more Agile. Why is it important? Many of you have following experience – project has failed, customers are dissatisfied or even lost, enormous amount of resources has been […]

  • Hey Manager, give me more money! – Value Based Remuneration

     Agile organization In any knowledge-based organization, it is employees, who have power over value stream. Imagine your any project. Who did planning, estimations or execution? Did we seriously think when preparing plans? Did we considered our failures as opportunity to learn? If project goes well, no problem. But if it fails, in many cases and […]

  • Hey Manager, give me more money! – Requirement at wrong place and why it is dangerous

    I noticed in Agile community and related articles and presentations mentions addressing salaries and remuneration. Money are wanted by to everyone, no wander the topic is becoming increasingly popular. However, I feel that the only purpose of these presentations or blog posts is to attract audience, be it to the speaker or to the blog. They used […]

  • Agília v Bratislavě a Brně – Agilní diskuse

    Ve dnech 16-17. 9. proběhly další setkání Agilia tentokrát v Bratislavě a v Brně. Od našich slovenských kolegů víme, že setkání proběhlo ve firmě Erni, za slušné účasti a i nových tváří. V Brně hostila Agilii firma AVG. Začalo se poněkud netradičně a to občerstvením. Nejprve si všichni pochutnali na pizze, kterou by bylo škoda nechat vychladnout. Tímto […]

  • Open Letter to Stoos Community – What is impact of Stoos at business.

    It has happened 2 years, and 7 months ago. It was when 21 people (initiators – Stoos Network), senior executives, business strategists, managers, academics, lean/agile development practitioners or opinion makers, met in Stoos to discuss problems of the organizations. The process of selection of those 21 was interesting, hundreds people were contacted, and only few […]

  • Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies

    or Understanding Patterns of Project Behavior is a new book in my library. I have got it recently at my travels and start to read in instantly. It made me laugh, it made me (almost) cry, and it made me think and reflect, too.  Looking back at our projects, I try to imagine situations, where some of […]

  • How much Agile brings you SAFe?

    It is already some time, since Scalable Agile Framework (SAFe) has been published. And I remember my first impression when I saw it – „what is Agile at this process?” Last year I was in London and I noticed there is a presentation of the framework by Dean Leffingwell, so I took opportunity to satisfy some curiosity and did have […]

  • Agília – Čo ďalej?

    Od roku 2008 sme zorganizovali takmer 150 večerných akcií, ktoré navštívilo viac než 3000 ľudí. Od prvých stretnutí v reštauráciach sme sa prepracovali do firemných priestorov. Akcie majú rôznu podobu : workshopy, diskusie, prednášky. To všetko na zaujímavé témy, ktoré prezentujú zaujimaví ľudia. Ceníme si účasť, sme za ňu vdační, no máme pocit, že stagnujeme. […]
