Name Iurii Pavliuk
Bio

My story of software developer started at 2004.

When looking back at my career path, I see several pivot points in several dimensions.

First of all, I've changed professional area 3 times: at the beginning, it was business software, then websites and web applications, and finally games.

Another dimension is cultural. I've lived in Ukraine, Sweden, and Germany. I've worked at Ukrainian, American, German, and Swedish companies. They all are unique because of their sizes, structures, business models and leadership approach.

And of course, I've worked with many different people from all over the world (currently, in our studio in Berlin, there are people from 25+ countries, and there are 75+ nationalities across the company).

As you might imagine, besides the core skills of software developer, this kind of career path requires agility. Moreover, the industry by itself provokes a person to be more flexible, faster, focused and efficient.

So, in 2010 I started a conscious journey in the world of agile methodologies and its practical application to my everyday job.

Currently, my position is Prototyping Engineer at King (Berlin). This role includes development, project management, facilitation and team building. Scrum and Kanban are my tools for every day.

Also, I am certified Scrum Master and Scrum Product Owner by Scrum Alliance.

Name Oded Tamir
Bio

 

Oded Tamir - Agile coach at Agilesparks, Israel.

 

My first experience in Agile implementation in 2006 became my main mission during the last three years.

 

For over 20 years, I held various management roles- CIO,  Project Management in the High-Tech industry, including the position of VP Project Management in a large global company- where I focused on project tracking, problem- solving and  crisis management.

 

Although I have on my track record successful “crisis solving” processes that saved the company millions of dollars, I found that traditional project management has limited tools to solve problems and so the way back to Agile was only a matter of time.

 

2014 was the next breakthrough in my career when I joined Agilesparks, a leading Agile and Lean company, which guides organizations to manage the journey toward Agile adoption.

 

Since then, I lead Agile and DevOps change processes in global technological projects as well as assimilation processes in IT departments of financial institutions. Providing the full Agile solutions, I engage in facilitation of Management Workshops, training the project’s teams and the different roles  and supporting problem- solving and continuous improvement processes to achieve business goals.

As a scrum master I entered a fast growing company located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, right in the very peak of Agile transformation. I came in with an extensive background in facilitation and team coaching and it helped me to join organically the big change at Quby. Our ambition is to grow out of "water-scrum-fall" model and coach all departments to implement their understandings into behaviors to support and interact with development teams on a daily basis. Back in Russia I worked as a teacher, as a tour guide, as a councelor in kids camp, as a marketing manager and now in the Netherlands where I live for nearly 2 years my scrum master job gives me an opportunity to merge all my experiences and help the company grow.

My personal value is transparency, the true visibility of every step being done, every decision being made (on time!) and every wish approaching the backlog. At the conference I would like to share the story of my company to get some insights together with the attendees.

I help knowledge-based organizations, including IT companies, to rethink their organizational dynamics, their organizational structures, their mental models, their practices and their processes, to let them operate better in the 21st century.
 
I work closely with executives, managers and teams and I do a number of things including one-on-one coaching, team coaching, consulting on specific practices and, occasionally, hands-on training.
 
I’m especially interested in distributed leadership and self-organization for knowledge-based organizations, a topic that touches on a number on subjects, including non-conventional organizational structures and individual and collective communication and social skills. And, I’m a long-standing Agile practitioner.
 
In over 20 years of professional experience, I worked with organizations as big the United Nations’ FAO and as small as dynamic post-startup companies, in many different countries. I have a wide range of expertise, in both the public and private sector, with both large and small organizations and with different cultures.
 
Currently I work in Europe. I've also worked in the USA on a O-1 visa for "extraordinary abilities in Sciences”.
 
As part of my regular activities, I enjoy sharing what I know by speaking at major international conferences.

Name Lucian Adrian Stroie
Bio

Started as a tester around 2005, and now, 10 years later I am still in testing & enjoying it!  I’m happy to say that I like how the testing mindset shaped me! At the same time, during the years I've spent in the software development field I got to like the agile way of working, ending up doing on demand agile coaching and conducting trainings on agile.

 

My testing experience covers various types of software, ranging from firmware and embedded to web-apps, from server side to mobile apps, biased towards exploratory testing.

 

Even if testing is my main expertise, I have also taken steps in the project management and agile practices areas, gathering useful experience and combining with the testing mindset.

 

Currently, I work as a test lead in a award winning digital agency, coordinating the local test team as well as supporting the technology department with my technical expertise. Beside this main activity lines, I conduct agile trainings as a collaborator in a consultancy company.

 

For the community, I am a volunteer in the local agile and testing communities, supporting the events with either sponsorship that I lobby for as well as with presentations.

After more than ten years of being a part of the IT industry, I can say that I have always loved my job and that it has always kept me going. What I value is cooperation and readiness to contribute, and what I am convinced in is that knowledge is there to be shared and available to everyone.
