Matias NiñoAgility and Project Management at REI Systems
About the talk
We are facing an engagement crisis. There is a strong correlation between agile practices and employee engagement, and it’s clear that one cannot work without the other. Employee voice is one of the key enablers for engagement. However, it is one of the least understood – and perhaps less practiced – aspects of engagement. Employees see problems. They have ideas, potential solutions, and experiments they’d like to run. But they feel powerless to effect the change they know is necessary. Over time, the cycle of active disengagement continues.
But it doesn’t have to be this way! In fact, agile organizations already have the foundation in place to help individuals raise their voice and be heard – agile retrospectives. Unfortunately, most retrospectives currently do not have the positive ROI we would hope for or expect. Action items, learnings, hypotheses, goals, and other artifacts that come out of retrospectives are not shared with the rest of the organization in a systematic and impactful way.
This session is about the surprising connection between employee engagement, employee voice, and agile retrospectives. By providing teams with the solutions and support needed to run effective retrospectives, and by following through on the actions that come out of the discussion, you can empower individuals to become more engaged, productive and effective.
Turns out that effective retrospectives are more critical to business agility then you might have ever imagined.
