    Surprisingly, not all enterprises have a vision. And, when you're talking about delivering products & services at scale, not having a vision, or, worse yet, having one that no one knows or believes in, results in chaos, which leads to confusion in the market and ultimately losing customers.
     
    Susan Gibson (SPCT) has worked with 1000's of change agents to create personal visions, that are then turned into compelling shared visions for their teams, divisions, and institutions. When individuals see themselves in the vision, that's when the enterprise hums. Susan will share stories of how these compelling shared visions gave the enterprises she's worked with the focus they needed to truly delight their customers.

    Traditional Performance Management systems are in deep crises. Their industrial era approach is unable to meet the demands and thinking of 21st century people and organizations. Join this interactive workshop to discuss how Lean | Agile enterprises can push the reset button and move from an administrative Performance Management process to a successful iterative performance flow.

     This is a highly participative open space session and we will cover questions like:

    • Why is there a need to push the reset button on Performance Management?
    • How do we approach goal settings in an agile environment? What is the best balance between collective vs. individual goals? Can you align individual goals with agile thinking?
    • Why is there a trend to eliminate employee appraisals? Are 360-feedbacks the new employee appraisals? Can we still promote people without appraisals and less/no hierarchical structure?
    • How valid are traditional bonus models or are there better ways for remuneration and acknowledgement?

    We need good agile managers, if we hope to sustain rapid adaptation and innovation. Agile managers deliver coherent chunks of value, rapidly adapt to changing circumstances, and experiment with new approaches. Because they depend on their teams to support their own agile needs, they demand agility from their teams.

    Management talent is rare, and agile management talent even rarer. Gallup has surveyed thousands of managers, finding that low-talent managers, unfortunately a majority, create dysfunctional teams, build unsupported products and produce little sustained value. So developing high-talent agile managers matters.

    Agile managers adopt five agile base patterns for themselves: they measure economic progress, proactively experiment to improve, limit work-in-process by time and costradiate collective responsibility, and collaboratively solve systemic problems. It turns out these patterns have analogues in high-talent (non-agile) manager talents. That’s a relief, because we can focus agile manager development on extending the talents good managers already have.

    In this workshop, we'll explore agile manager characteristics, and management dysfunctions. We'll create approaches to move good general managers to good agile managers. We'll explore strategies for dealing with mediocre managers, whether they are peers or superiors. And we'll learning how to improve our own management agility.

    This talk comes from well-documented experience. I have held management roles from Team Lead through VP Engineering and CEO. At Citrix, Skype, Amway and other large companies, I used agile to help manage a 24-member user-experience department, three different agile coach teams and a 50-member data science department. Much of this work has been described in conference papers and detailed blog posts.

    Are you a leader undertaking or interested in undertaking a major Agile transformation? You’re not alone - an overwhelming 88% of executives worldwide cite organizational agility as key to global success. Many have also begun scaling their agile adoptions beyond individual teams to the program, portfolio and enterprise levels.  But how does one transition into a leadership role to create an adaptive organization with faster results, higher quality, and unparalleled innovation?

    Join Sanjiv for a groundbreaking experience, crafted exclusively for those tasked with leading and scaling agile initiatives.  We will cover essential set of Lean building blocks as a starting foundation for larger Agile scaling frameworks, including the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS), and Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD). After examining scaling fundamentals, we will dig into case studies that expose common scaling pitfalls and gain expert insight into best practices. We will then cover more complex topics, including budgeting and funding, agile PMOs, and agile contracts. Hands on interactive exercises will be interspersed to illustrate what it takes to implement and sustain cultural change, and to design transition teams. 

    The power is in your hands to apply agile ideas from the team to the top, and to totally transform your organization!

    This workshop will take the participants through an exciting journey of leadership that adopted scrum as the core philosophy to its glory to organizational agility. 

    The journey begins like an ordinary one with teams adopting to scrum. But eventually it takes a turn to impact orgnaizational boundaries, gets the touchpoints with organizational values, philosophies and becomes a strategic enabler. 

    The journey starts from getting scrum into the organization as an alternate to traditional product development patterns. Then the journey becomes rough ride for the organization due to organizational boundaries. Along the rollercoster ride, the leadership realizes the power of scrum as a tool for effective decision making, leadership showcase and eventually a strategic enabler. 

    This workshop will share the journey line, leadership conundrum, organizational values and value mapping/amalgamation, and finally the sacrifices behind the achievements.

    It's great to come to conferences and hear all the good advice from lost of smart and experienced people.

    But how likely are we to take our insights back and drive real change? What stops us from really changing the world?

    It's a truism that an inpidual can't beat the system, right? So how do we go about making change a collective agenda? How do we encourage leadership everywhere? We start by focusing on others rather than ourselves.

    In this interactive session I lead a series of small activities that model how we can go from a discussion with our friend about how things should be to leading change across the organisation. 

    I run three small discussions. Each one is designed to teach a method for increasing influence and effecting organisational change.  We pick the theme of "When I saw someone do something great/amazing at work" and each iteration we increase the number of people in the discussion, and make the stories more personal.

    This shows how in just three iterations of a discussion we can totally change the way we interact with the environment (i.e. the people in the wider business) and drive braver conversations.

    Large organizations often struggle to leverage software to create innovative products. Conspiring to create obstacles to moving fast at scale are a number of organizational factors, as well as outdated project and program management paradigms that do not take advantage of the unique characteristics of software. In this tutorial—designed for directors of IT, program/project managers, and software professionals—Jez Humble describes how to take a lean approach to developing new products and running large scale programs of work. Jez shows how to grow a culture that enables organizations to turn software into a competitive advantage. He presents the principles and tools that enable a disciplined, scientific approach to product development, including hypothesis-driven delivery, lean UX, and impact mapping. To illustrate these principles, Jez uses case studies from organizational units that have successfully applied lean principles at scale in the context of software delivery. There will also be hands-on exercises to help participants try out the techniques presented.
