This post is my feedback on the Agile France conference . This conference took place in June 2010 in Paris.
It is also the opportunity to publish the presentation slides.
This keynote has been filmed and the movie should be published on The Agile France website.
I have liked
- The place, nice for exchange and chats
- The technical team who helped me for my keynote
- The different presentations especially those from Alexandre Boutin, Pascal Van Cauwenberghe and Guillaume Duquesnay
- Different people I’ve met between the sessions
Agile Games are more and more used… What do we mean by Agile Games ?
An Agile Game is a game that you can play with a team. Usually the game has quite simple rules. The interactions between players during the game give you a great learning experience.
It is related to Serious Gaming. It’s quite simple. The Human Being learn very well when he plays. More and more games are used in companies, during trainings, during coaching sessions… to learn and experience.

It is about Agile Day 2011 Brussels who will be held in french.
On Thursday October 2010, I will be speaker at Agile Tour in Marseille France.
My presentation is “How can Star Wars can help you to improve your Agile Team Management”.
You can be manager, scrum master, coach, team member etc… There will always be a moment when someone will give you a task or ask you a status. We will have to communicate.
Here comes the leadership styles (or management styles). We will see each one of them, and we will see how they can help us in our team spirit. We will see which style to use in which situation.

You’re facing a problem ? Having some (many) constraints ? Good for you ! You have the opportunity to be creative. Before that there is for sure a mandatory step. Grumble a little bit, Curse the whole world asking him ‘Why me” and “Shoot twice in the garbage” .:-) Ok now, calm down and let’s go further with this problem.
On my actual project I’m in the “Scope Definition” step. My difficulties are: I have a lot of stakeholders and a lot of input documents. And neither my documents, neither my stakeholders speak the same “language”. I mean vocabulary is always different.
On May 31th and June 1st, the French Agile Conference will take place in Paris. This Conference is formerly known as XP Days France.
I will be honoured to give a keynote named “Agile and NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) The eyes, ears and feelings…“
A few words about this keynote: NLP is a new and “young” branch of psychology. NLP became famous because some Tv Series like CSI or The Mentalist speaks of it.
Far of the myths within those episodes, NLP is really a box of tools which will help you to succeed in your (Agile) Projects.
March 19, I was in Toulouse France for the Agile SigmaT13 conference. Goal of SigmaT is to develop an Agile community in the “South-West” part of France. To do so, they make different actions, promotion meetings and conferences.
This conference was indeed a very nice experience for me.

In a previous post I told you had a plan to give a presentation in Paris, march 30th. It was for the first birthday of the French Scrum User Group. Here’s my feedback on this event.
I arrived in Paris around 4 p.m to avoid traffic jam, I was warmly welcomed by Xavier Warzee from Microsoft France. Microsoft was the sponsor of the evening and the event took place in their main offices in Paris. Xavier let me visit the place, all the offices, Tech-Rooms and let me “play” with the “Table-Surface”.
