Highlights about the AgileCamp Dallas Edition 2017

Hello Everyone!

2017 has been a great year full of good challenges! New clients, several sessions (design thinking, innovation, agile workshops), new countries, new cultures, new friends, talkings and approximately 600 people whom have attended those cool events I was part of but prior to year´s end, I want to share great memories from the AgileCamp that took place in Dallas by December 1st.

This is a special event to me not only by its dimension and level of importance within the innovation and agile global community but as well as milestone in my personal life in sharing the stage and meeting such amazing people that I admire such as Scott Ambler, Ahmed Sidky and David Marquet.

In this opportunity, I did talk about #innovation #agility practices and the agile mind set in driving a culture of innovation mixing up my background in music performance and composition.

InnovationAgilityThe focus was in to incorporate such practices and use them in a disciplined way to create possibilities, take actions, get results and hopefully generate new beliefs in an iterative way.

I had the great pleasure to meet Ahmed Sidky, Head of Development Management, Rio Games. Mr. Sidky has delivered a great talking about Evolving Agile Leadership at Riot Games. Amazing story of challenging convention. This is the legendary game company behind the League of Legends which by the way I am an addicted player!

Scott Ambler has presented about How to Overcome the Challenges of Adopting Agile in Established Enterprises. I follow Scott´s work for years and he is one of the creators of DAD – Disciplined Agile Delivery along with Mark Lines. Unfortunately, I could not attend Scott´s talking as I was presenting at the same time but glad we were able to catch up and share the same table during lunch!

Finally, but not least, the great Stacey Louie, AgileCamp Founder and Managing Director at Hyperdrive Agile Leadership. I loved the event´s format! Thanks for having me in to share my experience and thoughts.

Thanks to the volunteer´s team and special thanks to David Tochukwu and Arnel Cayabyad! Long live to the AgileCamp future editions!

Take care! Raf!
