Enterprise Agile Coaches are Systems Thinker

schedule 12:45 PM - 01:30 PM place AGILE COACHING & SCALING people 2 Attending

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.

    This session is mainly about the myth that "Innovation starts with an idea"

    Padma Satyamurthy - Customer Centric Product Development - Applying Story Mapping Technique

    45 mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    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.

    This session will be a sharing from real time case study. Extraction from one of my popular linked in blog. As an agile coach how can we ensure success comes to us? Today's world business dynamics changes every now and then. Organization wants wonders to be done by the agile coaches. Every legacy large enterprise wants agile coach to clean up the whole system in shortest period of time! 

    Most of the time if coaches are not a calculating risk taker they get into trouble though we call all these events as a learning but we can ourselves design for failure if we do not assess ourselves properly.

    I will be speaking about several blind spots and my resolution to these issues. Which has worked for me.

    I have attached all my linked in posts related to these theme.

    This is one of my thought concluded after interaction with many enterprise coach Colleagues and I myself convince about this concepts which is working with me.

    This talk will present to all about various cases where already enterprise coaches are applying various psychological theories and application of the same during coaching.

    When we talk about Mindset it is all about our mind. If we coach do not understand deeper meaning of mind how we can stimulus diversified cultural people for mindset change.

    Gil Broza aptly points out, an agile mindset combines values, beliefs, and principles that in turn guide how processes and practices are implemented. When we start dealing with people's value, belief and principles, you are getting into the world of psychology. May not be first of coaching but after 10 years of coaching for sure you will touch upon some of the psychological concepts and application of these concepts.

    I will be taking you through these concepts which worked for me.

    Various context where we need to apply psychological theory

    What are the innumerable theories we have which can be apply during coaching.

    A case study where I have achieved major success by applying some of these theories

     I have added few of my linked in posts to support this theme.

    Agile manifesto was born in 2001. Various lightweight methodologies came under the umbrella of "Agile" methods/practices. With the evolution, various frameworks/methods have come up to address the challenges of scaling Agile at large level. 

    When it comes to Agility at small scale such as Startup or smaller companies, the traditional Agile practices including some of the principles do not fit as is. With this talk, I would be sharing my personal experience as a startup founder and the knowledge I have built based on the newer practices to address Agility challenges at smaller scale.

    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.
