Agile Kitchen – When agility meets reality – Comic Agilé
The creators Luxshan and Mikkel will take us through a visual and provocative journey of agile anti-patterns and misunderstandings, told through their tragi-comic strips.
To some OKRs are wrong, OKRs are a reinvention of top-down management by objective with added metrics to mislead and distort reality. Such OKRs are little more than a return of return to command and control.
That’s what this former OKR cynic thought, but after using OKRs with multiple teams he got a surprise: they work. Used right OKRs fit well with agile.
OKRs offer the tantalising prospect of reawakening agile’s radical side, aligning management with teams, improving communication and resolving the tyranny of the backlog.
In this presentation Allan Kelly will share his journey from cynic to enthusiast and explain how to use OKRs for good.
This is an online session and will be organized with Zoom. The participants will receive the Zoom connection details upon inscription.

The last few years the world of work changed quite a bit, and many Agile community initiatives struggled to stay operational. With iLean’s Agile Kitchen we want to contribute in bringing the community back together in ways that suit our new reality.
In the Agile Kitchen we want you to be more involved and enlarge the learning potential of yourself and our community!
It’s simple: iLean’s Agile Kitchen is about Agile and people!
Every 6 weeks we gather around one or more Agile topics for intereactive learning sessions and knowledge sharing. We invite speakers from our community (maybe you?), or national and international thought leaders to facilitate these sessions about specific Agile topics. The topics we chose are your topics. We gather them on our Agile Kitchen Miro board and give you the possibility to introduce or support relevant topics.
Let’s get cooking!
