    Enterprise Agile Transformation initiatives are BIG. Change at this scale of thousands is tough. 

    The Leaders and Executives involved in these initiatives are going through their own personal transformation. Change at this scale of one is equally tough. 

    Siraj Sirajuddin (SPCT) has worked with hundreds of executives leading enterprise agile transformation initiatives. These are their stories of personal growth and individuation. We will hear how transformation at a personal level is the leverage for transformation at a collective level. We will also learn of unique methods that activate personal transformation for leaders who are ready to step into their leader persona but are unable to get that from traditional leadership training and coaching methods.

    In this session, we will study how two scaling approaches, LeSS and SAFe, affect the fundamentals of the organization: leading flow, unity, and learning. A critical choice is the balance between program execution and long term evolution. We will give valuable thinking tools for choosing the correct approach.

    Scaling Agile is easily misunderstood. Do you want to handle bigger programs and more teams or do you want to have more value with less hassle? Or do you want to widen the Agile adoption to the whole of the organization: culture, business, and leadership.

    Both Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) and Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) have a history with Nokia and use it as a reference. The pattern of Coordination Chaos (http://www.slideshare.net/gosei/coordination-chaos) was one of the main reasons leading to the infamous “Burning Platform” of Nokia Mobile Phones. It is a core challenge in scaling. Most big organizations around the world face similar problems. Nokia provides a relevant story to understand and compare what these approaches offer.

    Another challenge is learning. Big corporations often use the machine metaphor for the organization. This management thinking optimizes resources and cost, locally and in the short term. It treats learning as cost, especially learning outside of one’s special role. Let’s contrast this with a Scrum team (the team + the product owner + the Scrum master). It cross-learns inside the team. It inspects and adapts at the market. Here learning creates value. This is what you want to scale up.

    We will look at the approaches by using organizational control theory created by William G. Ouchi where he defines three main control mechanisms; bureaucratic, market and clan control. This explains why teamwork is the only way. Even having the same basis the frameworks differ how control is achieved, and it has an impact on long-term sustainability.

    The flow of work is analyzed looking at batching of work, length of detailed planning horizon and organizational structures.

    Finally, we will point out the main questions you should look at when selecting LeSS or SAFe. What is their transformational power. Are they aiming at a fundamental change from Taylorian organization to Lean and Agile.

    In 1995, Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber introduced Scrum, today the most popular Agile methodology, according to every Agile report. 

    20 years later, that same collaboration, led by Scrum.org, produced Nexus, the proposal from the Scrum creators to Scale Scrum in large Software development initiatives that include hundreds of people. 

    Over 45 minutes, we'll explore the Nexus framework, its artefacts and roles, as well as some practices, differences and similarities between Scrum and Nexus. The underlying philosophy will be displayed and discussed. 

    We'll also take a look at real organisations already using Nexus to scale their software development efforts using the Scaled Professional Scrum program from Scrum.org to transform their product development

    Resources: Nexus is free and available for download on https://www.scrum.org/Portals/0/NexusGuide%20v1.1.pdf

    In the Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) Workshop, you will simulate a large software development project using the Nexus Framework. Through this hands-on case study, you'll learn over 40 practices to reduce complexity and dependencies at scale. You will leave with the knowledge and tools necessary to scale Scrum to deliver an Integrated Increment every Sprint.This experience will help you understand the techniques, philosophies, and challenges that Ken Schwaber and Scrum.org have learned through years of formulating and coaching Scrum projects in enterprises.

    New competitive threats often require organizations to build increasingly complex, interconnected and sophisticated software and systems, faster, better and cheaper. Most organizations are not equipped to meet this new challenge! Meanwhile small, nimble competitors, like Airbnb and Uber are taking a big bite on the profits of the giants. 

    So what’s the answer? What have we learned in the past decade from our adventures in agile and our attempts at scaling? What does the future hold?

    In this talk, Richard Knaster, Principal Consultant and SAFe Fellow, discusses a more scalable and modular lean-agile approach that enables even the largest enterprises to compete with smaller and nimbler competitors that are disrupting companies in all industries. Richard is a Principal Contributor to the Scaled Agile Framework and previously worked at IBM where his roles included Chief Agile Methodologist. World Wide Agile Practice Manager and various product management roles in the Rational Brand.
