    HI,

     

    This session is a mix of exercises, experience and examples of innovation and has probably max 2-3 slides. Also the slides are not very self explanatory and are used for reference only. Hence I have not uploaded the slides because the slides may not make sense. . So if more details are needed I can have a call with reviewers as well.

      HI,

       

      As part of session, I will share the breakthrough Innovation that happened in my past project. The innovation was "building Automated Inventory System" . My team was managing 100s of Virtual machine and we used to keep a manual excels of VMs and current usage. Also licensing became an issues because of lack of correct data. We build an automated inventory system for all our Virtual machines.

      Also there are couple of more examples that I would like t share.

    Hi Sharmila,

    As interesting as this topic sounds, I wish to understand if this is a sound established research in the industry or your personal experience? If it's an established research then it would be nice if you could provide the relevant links here. If it's your personal experience, I would suggest updating the session to an experience report and providing details as per your context so it's easier for the audience to connect with your topic.

      HI Vishal,

       

      This is based on an established research done while authoring a book called "Making Breakthrough Innovation Happen: How 11 Indians Pulled off the Impossible". There was a research about how really these companies innovated, so this research is the base of the thought along with examples and personal opinion

    As a enterprise coach we all need to go beyond team coaching to enterprise transformation process to bring end to end agility into the organization.Coaches are connected with various business lines while coaching.They can visualize and help organization to break the organizational silos.

    To be effective, the action taken must alter the interrelationship of the parts or silos. Unless one alters the relationship between or among the parts, there is little hope for effective change.

    Using the principles of systems thinking offer coaches to new ways of seeing and of interpreting what we see.

    As an enterprise agile coach how we can apply systems thinking at our work context a journey with me.

    Sharing my learning and observations with deploying systems thinking for scaling agility into the organization.

    I have all my linked in post related to this theme.

    Every product development essentially starts with requirements collection of what product should do and what user wants. However this becomes the most difficult part to focus on what and where to start the development from. For years, the product development requirements have become inundated with requirements templates and word documents. The traditional 100-500 page requirements document that was widely practiced a few years ago was having its own limitations.  The teams particularly started feeling difficult to consume and manage these large documents and deliver value incrementally.

    With more and more organizations moving to agile, the product development teams started going for leaner structures that represent crisply what customer / user wants from the product.

    The teams are have done away with multi-page requirements documents and have adopted backlog as a source of managing requirements. The backlogs also started helping teams to break the large product expectations into multiple layers of epics, features/enablers and user stories. 

    But, at times, during this breakdown, there are chances of losing the big picture and prioritization and hence impacts the value delivered to customer as early as possible. Story mapping techniques, created by Jeff Patton is one of the most popular way to help carve out the MVP from the big picture that helps the organization to realize value at the earliest.

    Is the scaling framework your organization is on helping you to Be Agile or pretend to be Agile? How about drafting one that stays true to Agile principles and helps with what your organization needs most while scaling?

    While there are many frameworks available to scale Agile it is important to discern if these prescriptions address the real problems that an organization encounters while scaling up.  Does one size fits all? Is it worth adopting a framework and then retrofitting the organization into it or it is a better proposition to understand the dynamics of the organization, the existing challenges and business objectives first and then carve out a scaling approach, keeping Agile principles intact, that suits the organization's needs best.

    This interactive workshop is about discovering the best approach to create your own scaling framework, one that is custom made to respond to your organization’s needs.

    Scrum ceremonies, in most of organizations which are currently on path of Agile Transformation is a substitute for SDLC processes which were earlier followed. The need is to get them out of the cocoon, and provide them with wide variety of options that scrum masters can incorporate in the scrum ceremonies, making it more effective, interactive and fun to attend along with serving the main purpose of ceremonies.

    I myself in my project have experimented with various styles of retrospective, collaborative team activities and innovative style of doing stand ups. The finding from these innovative ideas is a good take away for the scrum enthusiast.

    The entire journey of how a team considering ceremonies as burden are not reaching before time to attend them and at the same time delivering beyond expectations. We not only took the amateur group of people and delivered the goals but we created a highly functional scrum team out of it.

    The goal for coming years to make this team more mature and cross functional will also be shared.
