In this session

In this talk, the creators of the agile comic strip, Comic Agilé, Mikkel and Luxshan will take the audience through a visual and provocative journey of agile anti-patterns and misunderstandings told through their tragi-comic strips.

The focus in this session is on high performing Scrum teams, psychological safety, DevOps, and Team Topologies.

The presented content, points and lessons will be relatable to the employees of InfoSupport, as they’ll also center around with Scrum, Kanban and SAFe – and why implementing these agile approaches fail. Sometimes we blaim the customers when we should, in reality, blame ourselves. During their 60 minutes talk, the duo behind Comic Agilé will emphasize how to avoid the depicted mistakes, so the audience can reflect on their current agile practices and learn how to improve them.

Date: Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Time: 19:00 – 20:15
Location: Kruisboog 42, 3905 TG Veenendaal and Microsoft Teams

About the speakers

Luxshan Ratnaravi holds an MSc in Software Engineering and is an Agile Coach with the Danish financial software solutions provider Bankdata. He’s constantly on a mission of improving the status quo from his position between being an agile ideologist and a pragmatic problem-solver.

The succes of Comic Agilé

Mikkel and Luxshan’s mission is to expose what happens when agility meets reality. Having collectively worked with agile teams for more than 20 years , the duo’s real-life frustrations with agile transformations lead them to create agile comic strips, under the name Comic Agilé.

The huge popularity of Comic Agilé lead to the two partners-in-crime to publishing a book with their strips and advice for how to manage the anti-patterns, paradoxes and misunderstandings that inevitable occur when everyone wants to be “agile”, but nobody wants to make the needed changes. With more than 30,000 agile-professional followers on LinkedIn and more than 10,000 copies of their book sold globally, Mikkel and Luxshan are now taking their ‘edutainment’ concept to the next level with company-specific talks, provoking enterprises to reflect on their own agile practices in the spirit of continuous improvement.
