Lessons Learned in Applying Agile Maturity Model for Scaling Agile

Every organization has it's own set of issues in scaling agile and there is no one size fits all models/framework. By far there are lot of framework like SAFe and supporting tools available to help scale agile. This presentation is more of an experience report on my journey with Agile and Scrum adoption program with an Internet company in consumer space and the kind of challenges around it and the ways those were dealt. I would be focusing more on the AMM (Agile Matruity Model) that I worked upon internally and the various stages/phases with in them which helped the Agile/Scrum teams to understand how well the progress is with them in agile adoption across the organization and what value in each phase it brings into the team and back to organization. I would describe the need for a model to be developed and what it is all about during the presentation. 

What to look or would be unique (I guess) in this talk would be the simplicity of the model and solving a complex problem. Simplicity in a way is to believe this model would be generic and most of the organizations would be able to relate to the real world problems while scaling agile.

    Hi Praful, the team is interested in understanding Scaling Agile - Yahoo Case study. Can you focus on the case study alone? Also we'll need a more detailed breakup of what you'll cover in the case study to accept this talk. Thanks.

    Praful - can you share your presentation deck, so that we can understand the theme and the flow of your presentation better? Also, if you could share a video of your recent talks, that will help the reviewers.

    Praful, when I look at the proposal it looks very bare-bone. You do have some interesting content in your comment, but the main proposal itself is not reflecting it. Request you to please update the proposal, as most people will not have the patience to go through the comment thread.

      Folks, Apologies for the delayed update. let me try and provide more details :-

I would like to describe the need for a model to be developed and what it is all about during the talk.

      Agility @ scale is a complex problem. Ain't it?

       

      @ Joel :-  Yes, this could be delivered by other people/organization, but here the USP is the generic model which could scale and agile in itself. 

       

      Thank you for the comments and expressing interests.

      Hi Praful,

         Thanks for the submission.  I would echo Vijayanand's comment on the title lining up with the description.  One other item to consider - your description sounds like it could be delivered by quite a few people / organizations.  Why is your session better / more interesting?  Is it size, is it challenge, was there something unique you did?

       

      Best,

      Joel

      Scaling agile is a challenge for most of the teams. By using a Case study model, I am expecting your delivery would help lot of people to understand the realtime challenges and probabably use your model as a baseline for change.

      Hi Praful,

      Going by the topic heading "Agile Maturity Model - Do we need one?", I assumed you might elaborate about the pros and cons of having an agile maturity model. However, in your abstract description or outline there is no reference to any model. 

      I sense you have a lot to practical experiences to offer, hence could you please explain a bit more about your topic in corelation to the title.
