From 8.November 21 to 12.November 21 W-JAX is taking place in Munich. W-JAX is the winter version of JAX, which is the leading conference for professional software development in Germany. This year W-JAX will be hybrid, that is people can attend personally or online from whereever they are.
I have the pleasure to moderate this years agile day again. The main topic of the day is agile beyond development. Many organisations are applying agile frameworks and techniques with good results. But business agility is often not achieved. That’s why we have choosen inspiring sessions about agility at the business level.
My session is about Kanban Flight Levels and OKRs. I am going to show how to establish coordination and alignment levels on top of agile teams.
The last session will be an interactive lean coffee session in which you can bring in and discuss your own topics.
I am looking forward to this great conference day and hope to meet you there.
In 2021 many organisations are trying to become more agile. They do that by applying techniques such as Scrum or Kanban. In the articles I wanted to shed some light on more hidden aspects of cultural development which I think is the real success factor of agile organizational development.
Recently I published a series of articles about agile culture development in the German IT magazines Java Magazin and Windows Developer.
Those are the Java Magazin issues that contain the article:
I am glad to see that this time the article was published in two magazines. Those are the Windows Developer magazines.

Agile teams work in a widely self-organized way. This raises the question who actually takes descisions in such a context.
Depending on several factors such as corporate culture the way decisions are taken can differ.
To build trust and support for descisions amongst the team it can be helpful to understand the way a decisions are made.
In order to support that, we created a poster that visualizes the most common models for decision making. It covers the most common decision models single, consultative, consent, consensus and hybrid.
Every model has strengths and weaknesses in terms of speed and sustainability. Every organisation should find the most appropriate model or even a mixture that works best in the respective context.
Visualizing decision models helps to gain insights into the way decisions are made and thus improves fairness and trust amongst the team members.
