Agile Talks #36: Cultural Change & Digital Transformation

Join us to discuss the main cultural trends in studios and agencies, and about successful digital transformation strategies. RSVP here to save your front row spot on May 23, starting 18:30!

 

About the event

The next Agile Talks event comes with the following talks:

1. “Cultural Change in Product Development Studios. What now, what next?” by James Murphy

“From what used to drive people (creatives & devs) to studios/agencies to what drives them now. What are the main cultural trends that studios and agencies need to adapt and build on in Romania and globally? How we can attract and engage the best people in development, design and product innovation?
The world of talent is very different from what used to be 10 years ago, even 5 years ago. What attracts generation Y and X, the new breed of remote digital nomads and super creative millennials to roles and brands has changed.
Fact – if the companies of the 21st century don’t consider this mindset and they don’t understand what employer brand is and how important is to a business of any size, then they will more than likely fail through a trail of mediocrity and lack of opportunity.
We’ll find out more together!”

About James:
James went from senior-level executive search in financial services to scaling and building tech-based startups globally over the last 15 years. With a people-centric career that has spanned through innovation in recruitment, personal funded startups and consultant for some of the fastest scaling platform businesses in London and beyond, James is now the Co-Founder/CEO of Squid40 and is focusing on a challenge culture based on uniting collaboration and empathetic minded professionals that have amazing startup ideas with inspiring founding teams.

2. “Digital Transformation from the Trenches” by Alexandru Bolboaca.

“In the past two years, we’ve been involved with digital transformation of European banks, working with all the levels in the organizations, from C-level and executive board, middle management, to product and development teams. We will share in this talk a few strategies that were successful and a few surprises we had.”

About Alexandru:
“Being deeply passionate about technology creation I am a continuous learner in the field. Between reading, trying out technologies and multiple programming languages, presenting and participating to developer communities and conferences, I have learned enough to write two books and teach hundreds of developers.

I love working with smart people who want to get better at what they do, whether it’s team work, communication, management or technical skills. I offer you my passion, my experience and my capacity to adapt to your needs.”

This months talk is presented by the fantastic Chris Cundill and centres on “The Rubbish App”. Conceived at a recent #HackTheCity meet-up, the App has a vision to improve the user experience for digital interactions with Swansea council. Its first use case is to deliver a modern way to report fly-tipping; using just a few taps. Awesome!

This is an event not to be missed!

Agile Talks #25 – No-nonsense Product Management – a metric-based approach

On October 11, starting 6:45 PM, we will host another edition of Agile Talks. If you want to know more about the metric-based approach and why you should use it for your products, don’t forget to RSVP here and save your front row place!

About the event

As a Product professional in an Agile environment you stand at the intersection between two very dynamic environments with radically different mentalities: “on the shelf” (Development, Design, QA), concerned with quality and performance, and off-the-shelf (Sales, Marketing), concerned with speed and presentation. Though interdependent, the two hardly ever have the same goals. Reconciling both visions in Product decisions and road-maps is difficult by default, especially with little to no formal authority. The metric-based approach addresses this problem by creating a transparent, democratic system for making decisions and getting stakeholders on board.
