Agile: Transition and Transformations

Arie-van-Bennekum Keynote: The complexity in the simplicity of Agile

Proposed by Wemanity

Agile is in itself so simple and still people struggle… There are some things we know. Changing people is impossible. People will only change when they can see there are motivation to do so. If so, what does it take to change a complete organization. What is the approach? How do you start, how do you move on once you have started and most of all, how do you sustain that change? A story on approach, co-creation of a new organization and its internal dynamics, its metabolism…

Arie van Bennekum

Arie is a pragmatic who embeds his pragmatism in structure, discipline and common sense. He has done this from his very early days in the health care and the military forces up to where he is today. This eventually led to being one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto and expert in the area of Agile Project Management, team facilitation, Agile techniques and user involvement.

Over the years Arie has become an expert in international Agile transformations. He has developed models for organisational competencies, the transformation process, coaching types and other topics which facilitate an Agile transformation, a not so easy job. He has created a team around him of highly skilled Agilists with various profiles from technical development coaches to psychologists to support the human and organisational aspects of the transformation.

Believe in his team, facilitating them to reach for their best combined with client and end user involvement has his focus when he speaks, presents, demonstrates and lectures about Agile as thought leader of Wemanity, as chair of the Agile Consortium International, lecturer at Universities and presents at conferences.
