avatar for Katherine Kirk

Katherine Kirk

Who are you ?
I’m a solidly experienced independent Agile/Lean Coach and regular international conference speaker. My primary area of expertise lies in co-discovery and insight facilitation through exploring and combining eastern and tribal philosophy to find practical answers to tough, on-the-ground issues, specifically involving contextually driven edge-cases and the cultural interaction between hierarchical management and Agile/Lean teams.
I currently enjoy being an active participant of a community of Lean and Agile practitioners in Europe who explore and challenge the status quo through experimenting and collaborating
What will you be speaking about at flowcon ?
I will share us my recent experience at The Economist dealing with alignment between Executives, Business and IT worlds based on facing difficulties and getting a competitive advantage from those.
Sharing this experience at FlowCon is an opportunity to discover a lateral understanding of flow.
How can we get the IT out of linear world ?
What will make you think that attendees have learnt a lot during your session ?
Meet people with lateral understanding of flow
Lean is linear, I’d like getting IT out of linear world
What is your favorite word ?
Equanimity :
In an eastern definition, it means awareness, calmness, compassion
The western meaning of the word is emotionless (impassible)
What is the question you would have like us to ask you ?
An authentic question.
Something like “how to deal with difficulties ?” Usually we understand it like a scourge of ill (with bleeding as a result).
Or about getting money by being kind, which is the new thing.
Another about the risk of cycle to control world. Avoid breaking others !
