Agile Contracts workshop in Bologna on June 23 2015

After the rewarding premiere held in last March, on June 23rd I will be holding again a full-day session about agile contracts in collaboration with Alberto ‘Zio Brando’ Brandolini’s Avanscoperta.

It is going to be a very important day for me, considering the chance I am having to re-think the workshop based on the super precious feedback I got after the debut. On one hand I have a better feeling as the date approaches by, considering the positive feedback I received. I was pretty nervous that morning, I had waited that day for years. On the other hand I will strive to treasure the negative feedback I got, mainly about the expectation for even more games! 🙂

I will do my best. Good news already: I will introduce LEGO Serious Play in the workshop after having completed the facilitation training in Barcelona on May 11th!

I. Can’t. Wait.

People talking extreme contracts, people using extreme contracts

After the chat I recently had with Greger Wikstrand about Extreme Contracts, another nice video was made by Greger with Joakim Lindbom, both Enterprise Architects from Capgemini. In the video they discuss the nice behavioral and economical patterns emerging with the use of such contracts which I forged a few years ago when I was coaching e-xtrategy‘s team.

It is rewarding to see how e-xtrategy still keeps on using those contracts after years and, at the same time, seeing Greger, such an experienced person in enterprise software development, being so interested in them along the years.

e-xtrategy, Greger, thank you all: you are the best incentive to look for better solutions everyday.

I will also be talking of Extreme Contracts in Bologna next June, during the Agile Contracts workshop.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy the show! 🙂
