Collaboration among Agile Scrums to Achieve X velocity

Once basic Agile rules and discipline framework is set then following is regularly required

- Freqent reflects to ensure feedback is taken and each step is improvised further

- Find imediments and work towards goal of achieving 2x, 4x velocity by optimizing the non performing steps in between

This can not be done just by a thought.

- Proper study of project/product and it's market required

- tools to be customized to suit the team

- Skill level required

- Team should work towards win-win in all 4 areas (professional, personal, self, community).

- Very open culture to allow small and frequent failures

- working towards a common goal

Will share a case study and what all best practices helped achieve this. Although there are still many non productive areas which need fine tuning and this would be a ongoing journey.

    Thanks for the proposal Ritu.

    I'm curious to know what is your take on Jim Highsmith's blog - "Velocity is Killing Agility" (http://jimhighsmith.com/velocity-is-killing-agility/) The reason I'm asking this is because I'm a little confused from your statement - "work towards goal of achieving 2x, 4x velocity".

    Also request you to please update your proposal with links to slides and videos from past presentations. Without these the committee would not be in a position to select the proposal.

      Thanks NAresh for the link to velocity discussion. It is indeed interesting. I have responded to that and am interested to hear back on it.

      trying to attach deck presented in last conference. If you can share your email then I can respond on that.

      Hi Prasad,

      Not sure if I understood the question correctly. But following is my background

      I am working in agile model since last 4 years. Have transitioned projects to agile as well. Currently handle a team of 100+ people with 13 different scrums working towards delivery. We have come a long way of reducing technical debt, regularly doing retrospective and removing impediments to icnrease the velocity. Coming down to 5 member scrum team and removing all wastes as much as possible.

       

      Please let me know if you ahd asked anything else.

       

      Thanks

      Ritu
