5 Whys Challenge: Uri Nativ

Did you register yet? I know, you probably want to know who else answers the Challenge, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until there are no more tickets. So go register, so you too can enjoy this week’s challenger, Uri Nativ. Uri is a frequent speaker, and this year he’s going to present “AGILE – THE MISSING LECTURE” – what they don’t tell you when you start your agile journey. And if there’s something to be learned is from the success and failures of others.

Hey, that’s what the conference is all about!

Let’s see what Uri has to say:

Why should people come to the conference?

Last year was awesome, this year is going to be even more awesome. Great speakers, great topics, great community.

Why should people come to my session?

My talk AGILE – THE MISSING LECTURE is about what people don’t focus on when moving to Agile.
Transition to Agile takes time. Listen to my mistakes, and you’ll cheat time. I’ll share from my mistakes throughout my 7 years into agile, I’ll give you great takeaways on what to focus.

Why did I choose this topic?

Software engineering is all about people. Agile methodologies emphasize the people aspect. This is where my passion is today.

Why do I think you should also go to “ENGINEERING YOUR CULTURE: HOW TO KEEP YOUR ENGINEERS HAPPY” by Oren Ellenbogen?

I’ve heard Oren talks a few times already. And while I consider myself an experienced manager, I always learn something new at Oren’s talk. Oren always gives you great tips and advices you can go and implement straight away in your day-to-day.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

It had took it literally to commit to the DEAD LINE.


I think next year we should do a “why did the pig cross the road”. Because if someone knows more about commitment than chickens, it’s pigs. Get it?

Oh, we’re not using that metaphor now? So we’ll need to find a better “why” question.

In the meantime, get your tickets ready, and check out the program and workshops. It’s less than two months away!
