    StartUps thrives on Innovation. They can compete with mid/large organizations only if they remain innovative. Agile in general helps StartUps to innovate but it very much lies the way Agile is interpreted and implemented. Practitioners at times go overboard with practices of one of the methodology (say, Scrum, XP, Lean, Kanban etc) and loose the touch with agile values, context and reality. StartUps are always on resource-crunch, be it human power, systems, cash-in-hand etc and its not easy to keep best of processes with such constraints. Author has 3 startups of his own and have coached many startups/small companies in past and he would share his experiences/experiments with Agile keeping Innovation as the number one goal.

    Scrum's underlying philosophy is similar to the idea of "aggregation of small gains" over a reasonable period of time eventually leading to breakthrough results. In this talk, we will review examples from diverse fields such as military and sports and then discuss how these ideas help improve the efficacy of Scrum implementations to accelerate innovation.

    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.

    In a jungle of digital world, there’s an unprecedented demand for companies to innovate, iterate, and get products into consumers’ hands faster. Doing FTTM(Faster Time To Market) isn’t just an aspiration—it’s a necessity for survival.

     

    Software used to be built in an assembly line: developers wrote the code, and then tossed it over the wall to operations engineers to be built and deployed. In this model, development is clearly delineated from operations, each department functioning independently with its own discrete roles, tools, and processes. Software release could take days or weeks, and acquiring additional infrastructure could take weeks or months.

     

    Various cloud service providers, make it easy to get servers with the click of a button, and configuration management tools reduce the time and complexity of configuring and managing software.

     

    But customers’ demand for the next digital thing is truly driving the need for faster software delivery.

    To break the mold, companies need to find a more creative, collaborative, and efficient approach to software delivery—one that removes the barriers and embraces the dependencies between development and operations to release great software.

    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.
