Liraz Margalit, Digital Psychologist, Topicx

In this talk Liraz Margalit will describe about bringing Big Data to Life to deliver actionable insights into your customers’ psychology Businesses today are swimming in data about their consumers, but despite all this information at our fingertips, we really don’t know what your customers want. That’s because this incredible, rich data tells us plenty about what our customers do, but next to nothing about why they are doing it. Big data is definitely capable of telling a general story, providing broad insight into the user journey, but how do we capture the essence of the story—all the components that give the story life? To truly understand customer behavior, data must be organized in a way that shows a deep understanding of the way people think and behave. It’s not just about blanket personalization. It’s about thinking like a psychologist — or better yet, hiring a psychologist to help you crunch those numbers. Humans are not machines. We are complicated, intelligent and emotion-driven, and companies who rely too heavily on cold numbers in a bid to understand their consumers are cheating themselves by forgetting this. The path from initial brand exposure to checkout is long and usually takes a few touch points for the user to convert. We need to stop talking about conversion rates, and start talking about conversion cycles. A “conversion cycle” can involve many site visits, transitions between mobile and desktop, and even multiple stops between a company’s online and offline stores. Only by adding a behavioral perspective to our understanding of website visitors can we effectively personalize content that matches their state of mind, emotions and personality and bring big data to life

Ariel Pisetzky, VP IT & Cyber, Taboola
Barak Luzon, R&D team leader, audience extensio, Taboola

So, the firefighters are in your data center, literally inside your data center, this is not a drill. There is no electricity, and the pager is more like a DDoS attack on your phone than anything useful. You look at your watch, multiple thoughts running through your head. Why me? Why now? What was the last DR test result? How do you pull the team out and through this catastrophe and survive to talk about it? The answer might surprise you and it is less technical than you thought. This is all about the culture and communication openness, pushing through multiple mistakes and keep going forward. Not looking who to blame, yet looking ahead to find answers. This is our story, our personal fight with the IT “Murphy laws” and how we can all benefit from it.

25mins

Yuval Pemper, Chief Engineering Officer, Innovid

Building on the foundations of no code ownership and continuous deployment practices at Innovid, our product and development teams are organized around business objectives. Developers and product managers jointly own a set of business objectives that they rally around. The success and impact of these teams is measured according to how well they’re able to achieve their business objectives.

25mins

Luxshan Ratnaravi, Agile Coach, Comic Agile

Mikkel Noe-Nygaard’, UX Specialist, Comic Agile

If we want to really succeed with the agile ways of working, we need to focus on the exact moments where failure happens, so we can learn from them and avoid repeating the mistakes. Through their agile comic strip, Comic Agilé, Luxshan and Mikkel have articulated and visualized how reality takes its unforgiving ax and slashes away on agile’s good intentions and ambitions, leaving the organization bloody, with a rotten smell of superficial agility, frustrated customers and demotivated employees. In this highly entertaining talk, the duo will walk the audience through their most popular comic strips with the craziest misunderstandings and stupidest anti-patterns that happen when agile meets reality, and provide sound advice on how to manage, or even avoid, these tragicomical situations. All through their continuously evolving comic strip.

45mins

Oded Tamir, Enterprise Agile & DevOps coach, lead coach @ AgileSparks

“No organization can perform at a level higher than the collective effectiveness of its leadership.” (Scaling Leadership – Robert J. Anderson and William A. Adams) Without an actual measurement tool to measure the effectiveness of their leadership, leaders do their best to support and lead Agile transformations. Research indicates that the lack of effective leadership is one of the main reasons why only 16% of the companies that adopt Agile achieve a high level of maturity (level 4 or 5). This lecture will introduce you to LCP (Leadership Circle Profile), a 360-degree assessment tool used by top companies across the globe to measure leadership effectiveness. LCP gives managers the ability to assess their own level of leadership and to translate it into a path for growth and professional improvement that will allow them to better support their company’s Agile transformation.

Sharon Ezra – VP, Digital Transformation & Software Dev. Projects, Malam team

Malam’s Systems Division is one of the largest development centers in Israel that employs over 500 development, testing, systems analysts, product managers, and project managers. It focuses on developing, digital transformation, and integrating enterprise information systems and IoT solutions for organizations based on various technologies. The division’s customers include companies and organizations from all sectors: financial, public, security, services, and industry. Unlike most product companies, the main activity of the division is the development of dedicated software that is completely tailored to a specific customer, usually based on a response to a tender based on a fixed definition of time and budget. Each client requests unique adjustments in how the project is managed and technology and architecture while dealing with budget constraints, lean management, and meeting profitability targets. These are just some of the reasons for the uniqueness of Malam Systems’s agile transformation. The lecture will focus on the challenges of organizational and cultural change, the extensive deployment of 30 development teams simultaneously, and the success stories of the Agile journey in the Malam Systems Division.
