Stephen Carver at the Agile Business Conference

0 comments Links to this post
Those who attended this year's Agile Business Conference were treated to a phenomenal keynote presentation from Cranfield's Stephen Carver who brought to life the problems faced by project and, separately, programme managers through an extended analogy with flight. The session integrated Battle of Britain strategy featuring an analogue intranet for the first time!, with the ups and downs of commercial airliners and Stephen even got delegates making their own paper aircraft for an 'end-of-session' flight test.

Here are some AudioBoo clips of Stephen's session including a brief interview.

Same Difference

Here's me delivering an evolving version of a presentation I've been presenting to different audiences for a while now. Hey, nothing wrong with reuse! It's surprising just how Social Technologies and their application loop throughout so many discussions right now. Plus, it is interesting that they can just as easily be used to knit together teams, communities, families and culture whilst injecting pace, rigour and control into business projects.

So, whilst I was talking AudioBoo, geo-location, hashtags and Twitter to a predominantly financial services audience, James Clay ( ALT Learning Technologist of the Year 2009 ) was talking about Mobile Learning at the BECTA LSIS Embracing Technology Conference to an audience drawn mainly from education.

There's an audio stream of James' talk on his blog. It a fun listen. Despite the difference in subject matter and audience, there are a number of common themes.
