The sixth speaker is here: It’s agile-guru Simon Bennett, right now Managing Principal for LASTing Benefits.
Simon Bennett is a popular conference speaker and workshop facilitator. He covers a wide gamut of topics with a central theme: from how Game Theory can improve the outcomes of your Agile Contracts, how your employment contract affects your performance (and those around you), what Cynefin can tell us about Scrum and how obsessive backlog grooming could lead to a breakdown in the cognitive abilities of your stakeholders.
On April 16th he will be joining From Business to Buttons and we couldn’t be happier.
Simon's particular interest is how the systems and scenarios we find ourselves in drive our behaviour; specifically the ways in which we view and interact with each other and how this affects our perceptions of the world and our decision making processes. He works as the Managing principal for LASTing Benefits where he also blogs on a regular basis.
It was during the early 90’s that Simon Bennett first learned about OODA loops, game theory and Lean Manufacturing. After a decade of 2167/A based projects Simon then discovered what was soon to be known as Agile Software Development and began experimenting with techniques such as XP, Crystal and Scrum for in-house software development. He has also been advisor to the Scrum Alliance.
Don't forget to get your tickets to From Business to Buttons 2016, and before February 16th, when the lazy bird kicks in and the prize goes up.
