Advanced Agile - Scaling & Governance Summit, Melbourne

X Topic Abstract

Many organisations are only getting marginal benefits from the Agile practices they have implemented compared to orders of magnitude improvements promised by Agile case studies. This is because usually Agile practices are applied superficially rather than fundamentally changing the system to support Agility. In this session we are going to talk about how the lean-agile mindset and the principles of Scaled Agile Framework enables Agility across the entire enterprise and helps build a true resilient organization.

X Topic Abstract

A true DevOps transformation requires significant changes to culture, strategy, leadership, and technology. Most people agree that the people aspects of DevOps transformations and removing organisational silos are the most challenging aspect of moving towards a resilient, all encompassing, DevOps environment. This is even more true in larger Enterprises

Scaled Agile framework adapts a systems thinking approach called valuestream mapping which helps us to come up with a roadmap for your DevOps transformation.

X Topic Abstract

In Lean-Agile transformation journey people, organisation and Enterprises faced three common issues:

1) Struggling in Adopting Agile practices without embracing the values and principles
2) Identifying the level of Agility that is required
3) Lack of a clear model for continuous transformation

Doing Agile can be achieved overnight, but being Agile is a long journey. Without the right mindset, it can be incredibly difficult to deal with complex issues in empirical environments and uncertain situations.

Level of Agility that is needed for a business depends on many internal and external factors like the nature of the market, level of competition, the maturity level of industry, etc. This means some organisations need to be more Agile than the others. The Transformation journey often is misled by having the wrong assumption of all organisations and people need to reach the same level of Agility.

MLAMP (Mazdak lean Agile Maturity Pyramid) is the first three-dimensional Agile Maturity Assessment which helps individuals and organisations (regardless of their type and size) to

1) Identify what level of Agility is needed? (the why)
2) Transit from the Shu (Doing) level and ultimately reach to the Ri (Being) level?
3) Transform less Agile organisations and people to more Agile ones?

X Topic Abstract

After working as an Agile/Scrum practitioner for many years, it is now clear to me that high-performing teams require more than finely tuned processes and rituals. Scrum is a highly effective way to work, but often the secrets to a high-performing team get lost in literal translation by less experienced practitioners. Over the last several years we have heard phrases such as "being Agile rather than doing Agile" or "Agile 2.0." What all of these terms refer to is the "Agile Mindset" rather than the strict implementation of a particular framework or methodology. In my talk, I will discuss a new term I have been speaking about called "Inner Scrum." I will unpack how you can add the special sauce to your Scrum Team to become a high-performance Scrum Team. I will also discuss Play, Mastery, Psychological Safety and the Power of Story (the purpose).
