What is a Stalwarts session?
Stalwarts sessions are built around your questions.
Stalwarts bridges the gap between introductory sessions and advanced sessions, focusing on specific, real-time questions, challenges, dilemmas, and issues that attendees bring to the conference. Experienced agile/lean practitioners - folks who have been in the trenches for many years, who wrote the books, maintained useful blogs, created the methods and approaches, coached the coaches - show up for a focused conversation with you in an open fishbowl format. There will be no prepared slides or talks, just spontaneous dialogue with you about your real challenges and questions.


  • This is what an open fishbowl format looks like and how it works.

  • This session is a 75-minute block, with the following timings:

    • 5-minute introduction with rules and speaker introduction by facilitator and an overview of current area of interest by speaker.

    • 60-minutes for the session - If you have a question, simply join the fishbowl.

    • 10-minute closing by speaker and facilitator.
