      AGILE THINKING & PRACTICE - BACK-TO-BASICS with Rob Healy, IT Delivery Manager, Unum About the Speaker Rob Healy is an Engineer, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Agile Coach, Consultant and Trainer. Since 2007 he has been involved in Agile Transformation in small, medium and enormous enterprises. His former clients include healthcare companies, major banks, Ireland’s largest Unicorn, the Department of Employment and Social Protection, and The Law Society. In his current role, he manages a cross-functional multinational team to deliver a digital transformation for healthcare insurance. In his spare time, Rob is a co-founder of Agile-Lean Ireland, a community group that has been running what has been deemed one of the top 20 best Agile Conferences in the world. Rob refuses to be dogmatic about Agile or its many frameworks, and he prefers to understand how the work works by listening to the people who do it rather than dictating a “best” practice. About the Topic The Agile Manifesto was signed in 2001 based on the research of a group of software development professionals. In the intervening years, “Agile” has become confused with some of the frameworks, tools, and practices that are part of it. In this back-to-basics talk, we will strip back the buzzwords from the key concepts and learn techniques for breaking down work into small pieces, establishing cross-functional teams (if they are needed) and learning by doing. Learn how “Scrum” got misnamed, how your brain uses Roman numerals, and how important radiators are to engineers. This talk will be entertaining, educational and interactive and we might just make it competitive! Lean Practitioners Sharing Knowledge The South East Lean Network and WIT Academy of Lean Enterprise Excellence present the Annual WIT Lean Practitioner Seminar Series, kindly supported by Enterprise Ireland and brought to you in association with Waterford Chamber Skillnet.
