Everything Is Better When We Stick Together: Building Team Working Agreements

Whether a team is brand-new or seasoned veterans at working together, explicitly defining and/or refining a team working agreement will help the team to align on how they will work together effectively to meet their common goal. In this fast-paced hands-on session, participants will go through the process of building a team working agreement using LEGO Serious Play (LSP).

Creating a team working agreement helps team members set the stage for effective communication and high performance by making assumptions about ‘what really matters to us’ and ‘how we will work together?’ explicit and negotiable.  Great working agreements address some difficult topics - what values do we share? how do we want to deal with conflict when it comes up? how will we handle problems within the team? - which are often challenging to discuss openly and honestly, especially when a team is first assembled.  

This session will show you how to use LEGO Serious Play to encourage a frank and fearless discussion in order to kickstart these discussions so that a team can quickly create a powerful set of simple guiding principles for working together.  Participants will learn about the importance of team working agreements in creating team cohesion and common understanding of shared values and operational guidelines, and experience hands-on how to use the LEGO Serious Play cycle of build-share-reflect to have a participatory discussion to identify shared values, explore reactions to conflict, and build a set of simple guiding principles.

 

 
 

Outline/structure of the Session

This will be a very interactive workshop composed primarily of facilitated exercises and minimal presentation elements.

    I love the idea of this session, both the style and the content, but the first sentence especially put me to sleep. I recommend leading with a problem that working agreements solves, such as articulating what we agree to do to avoid awkward arguments when one of us isn't doing it or making it clear when we're not all rowing in the same direction. I think that this is an under-developed skill and I want to see this session pull in a lot of people. By the necks, if necessary.

    What wonderful thing will happen when we start systematically articulating working agreements? What horrible thing lurks around the corner if we don't?

    As the industry is shifting towards an Agile (Continuous Delivery) style for developing products and services, (whether startups or large established organisation), everyone today has to thrive by innovating and adapting to the latest trends in technology. They have to keep themselves ahead in the race to delight customers. Full stack developers are key players in experimenting and delivering value consistently using varied tools and technologies throughout the stack.

    In this session I'll be share my journey of how I became a full-stack developer. Hopefully this will help others understand how they can target and plan to gradually become a full stack developer in their respective teams.

    Also I'll highlight the following topics:

    • What is the importance of a full stack dev?
    • What tools/resources/languages in my experience work best for full stack developers?
    • Downsides of being a full stack developer!

    Using play to build a better beginning through Agile Chartering

    Better teams create better outcomes.  A liftoff (as described in the book Liftoff by Diana Larsen and Ainsley Nies) at the outset of a new endeavour helps teams set the stage for betterness by cocreating a shared understanding of purpose, establishing alignment and understanding the context of the work they will do together.  While the activities to include in a Lift Off will vary according to team and context, the practice of Agile Chartering - collaboratively developing a lightweight yet effective roadmap for the project and the team - is key to aligning and inspiring people to do better work together.

    The purpose of an Agile Chartering workshop is to give all stakeholders of a project a voice and the opportunity to co-create a common understanding of the project dynamics, its purpose and context. It creates co-ownership of the project within the project team and thereby higher commitment to the project goals.

    In this workshop, we will explore the objectives of Agile Chartering and foster a playful approach to doing this work. We'll talk about what kinds of games can be used to cocreate Purpose, Alignment and Context with a team, and run at least one game that can be used for each of the elements of an Agile Charter

    Scaling Agile across the enterprise can also scale up or create new organizational conflicts: groups that are accustomed to working in their own silos struggle to find ways to identify their shared interests and collaborate effectively.  Equipping team members with effective conflict resolution skills is important in helping everyone navigate change successfully.

    Conflict isn’t inherently a bad thing – it’s inevitable when people are working closely together on things that they care about. In fact, diverging viewpoints can bring new insights to help teams move forward and create something new. Dealing with conflict head-on is challenging for many people, yet few organizations and teams spend time explicitly considering “how will we work together when things get rocky?” Teams need to build the skills to be able to navigate through rough times together and come out with win-win solutions.

    This workshop will present useful models for considering conflict supported by games teams can use to develop and practice conflict resolution skills. The models address underlying drivers of conflict, modes for responding to conflict, assessing conflict severity to determine appropriate interventions, and the patterns of principled negotiation. The games build on the concepts to help participants gain insight and develop important skills in a non-intimidating and memorable way.

    The role of Leadership in organisation's Agile transformation is a critical piece. Yet many organisations struggle to find the right balance between top-down vs. grass-root transformation. I would like to share an experience where we were able to achieve fairly good grass-root movement, but had serious challenges building the agile mindset at the leadership level. While the leadership was trying to help with the best of their intentions, certain actions, behaviours and patterns did affect the spirit of agility. If you are keen to hear about typical leadership anti-patterns during agile transformation and some pointers on how to avoid them, this session is for you.

    The #NoEstmates twitter hashtag was intended by Woody Zuill "..for the topic of exploring alternatives to estimates [of time, effort, cost] for making decisions in software development. That is, ways to make decisions with ‘No Estimates’."  Based on twitter traffic it has been successful at generating activity.  It's a bit debatable as to whether it has really spawned much exploration.  In this talk Todd will actually do some exploration using real data from over 50 projects at companies ranging from startups to large enterprises.  In addition to the analysis of the data, Todd was able to build a simulation model of the software development process to both replicate the data to and explore the conditions under which estimates add value and when they do not.  Based on the findings from the data and the simulations, along with an analysis of the types of business decisions that organizations need to make, Todd will provide some pragmatic advice for estimators and #NoEstimators alike.

    About the company

    Philips is a healthcare multinational company that focuses on building complete health care products and solutions for emerging markets, in addition to developing solutions and products for global markets, across the three sectors Healthcare, Lighting and Lifestyle. Using the expertise of its nearly 2000 engineers in Bangalore and aligning the marketing and sales teams the campus is responsible for creating and rolling out a complete set of products that include a whole host of solutions for global customers. It also contributes to global solutions in critical health care component development for connected consumer devices and renewable energy.

    Executive Summary

    Beginning of 2014, an external survey brought out the issues wrt time to market and code quality. Taking the survey results positively, the Leadership embarked on an Agile/SAFe journey with pilot projects. The results were amazing and with the currently learning from the pilots, the organization is running 25+ deployments within. The journey has started and Agile release trains are delivering periodic value to our customers at defined frequencies.

    Background Objective/Challenge

    Product quality, consistent & predictive delivery and quicker time to market are the key challenges the organization is trying to address today. Continuous Innovation is constrained due to the above issues and hence there is need to find a new way of product development which can meet the dynamic business needs, foster people engagement and deliver meaningful products to the world.

    Target

    ScaledAgile has been used as a framework for product development across the organization global. The whole organization is undergoing a transformation from waterfall way of working to the SAFe agile way of working and roadmap is till 2019.

    Agile Initiative

    The Framework used for the transformation can be summarized into 4 major steps

    1. Develop products in the Agile way with focus on Basic Agile practices (Scrum)
    2. Establish Product Ownership with focus on Enabling Scaling aspects (SAFe practices)
    3. Establish a release pipeline with continuous integration (supported by Automation)
    4. Adopt a DevOps Culture with focus on Continuous delivery (to production environment)


    This includes a comprehensive diagnosis of the various business processes, agile practices and behavior, engineering practices, delivery maturity and recommendations for the transition. A coaching and tooling plan is also an outcome of the diagnostics.

     Measurable Impact

    • Predictable Releases to customers (hitting the market with features every three months with features and business criticial bugs with less than 2 weeks with all the regulatory compliance)
    • Capitalization
    • Feature planned vs Feature delivered per program increment > 80%lose
    • Defect reduction co t 45%
    • Team velocity – Baseline vs actual.
    • Very high sense of ownership and high levels of engagement

    Transformation team Profile

    Global team

    • Agile Capability program manager -1 FTE
    • Agile Deployment Program Management – 1 FTE
    • Communication expert – 1 FTE (Today we are 0/1)
    • Coordination - 1 FTE

    The Spiderman antidote to the anti-patterns of Agile leaders

    Leading in an Agile environment is all about mindset and understanding what motivates people. This interactive workshop will unpack the superhero archetypes of Agile leaders with their related Agile leadership anti-patterns.

    Many leaders come into an Agile environment and feel threatened by a perceived loss of control. Successful Agile leaders empower the team and acknowledge that they can choose their own work and solve their own issues, pull themselves out of the detail and focus on supporting the team, know that if the team succeeds they do too, and are emotionally mature and are not constrained by ego.

    The best paradigm to frame the concept of leadership in Agile is that leadership is encouraged at all levels. As such everyone working in an Agile environment is a leader. In smaller organizations this is probably easy to encourage. In larger organizations, where the “Title” or “Position” predominates defines who is a “leader” and who is not, anti-patterns tend to emerge which do not support an Agile culture, even if it is the organisation’s stated vision to become Agile.

    In this instance the physical manifestations of Agile are put in place such as physical boards, Scrum ceremonies and an attempt at co-location are put in place. The danger here is that the Agile adoption will be a shallow one and will remain superficial. When the awesome magic of implementing Agile right is not achieved then people blame Agile as being the problem. It is not Agile that makes teams, projects and adoptions fail; it is people that cherry-pick those aspects of Agile that they like and are easy to implement that put the adoption on the path to failure.

    All too often leaders dismiss Agile as something the development teams do, rather than as something which affects them too, and that their role is important for its successful adoption. The role of leaders cannot be underestimated to turn a shallow adoption of Agile and make it a deep and lasting change for the organisation’s benefit. In this case, adoption in a small team or program will start the journey toward the tipping point that will make it a lasting organizational change.

    This may cause confusion, manifested as cognitive dissonance, in the leader. They may be asking themselves these questions:

    - How am I supposed to behave in a changing environment?

    - What behaviors am I supposed show to support the values and principles of Agile?

    - How do I support support the teams now?

    This workshop is based on my learnings and experiences as line manager of a development team in a large organisation, and Agile coach in large organisations in how leaders can in many instances unknowingly "sabotage" Agile initiatives, as well as experiential insights on what the enabling leadership behaviours and characteristics are.

    As part of this talk I will share the following:

    • What are the superhero archetypes of Agile leaders.
    • What are the related Agile leadership anti-patterns?
    • Discover the antidote to these anti-patterns (or the good patterns to replace the anti-patterns).

    This session will focus on what are the aspects organizations should consider when they want to scale agile implementation in organization.  There are several frameworks out there like SAFe, LeSS, Spotify, and so on. what is it that organization is trying to achieve and how a systematic approach of scaled agile implementation can help the organization.

    Attendees will be able to understand what aspects should be considered before organization decides to scale agile.  How to scale agile and when to do it largely depends on what organization is trying to achieve. Each organization is operating it in different way so there is no defined formula or framework that will work for all. But guidelines from this session will help the members to identify their needs and then take further action.  These guidelines can help the organization to successfully scale agile irrespective of which framework is selected.

     

    Areas covered in this session are:

    • what are the driving principles while scaling agile

    • Where to start

    • Which Framework should I select?

    • Organizational changes

    • Role of managers?

    • Scaling communication

    • Scaling engineering practices

    • Scaling Product Management role

    • Roll out plan

    • Implement the plan

    • Grow and evolve

    This session will be mix of talk, case study and experience report.

    With business agility being the new watchword in senior management circles, many enterprises are looking for ways to adopt this into their technology practices. However, it is imperative for such an initiative to go beyond the mere adoption of agile in a few projects.

    To run an effective enterprise there are different  systems and applications in every value streams.  There is no one size fit for all. There could be a broad pattern/ classification  like 'Money making applications' 'Applications which bring efficiencies to their operation' and 'Applications which are critical from a regulation and compliance perspective'.

    My session is going to focus on experience and patterns that helped in  achieving Agility in the above categories of applications   with respect to  key 'Movers & Shakers' in the system.

    What is it about?

    This is a story about building appreciation and feedforward culture in the organization.

    I am going to talk about a bottom-up experiment based on Jurgen Appelo's Merit Money, conduced in the biggest e-commerce company in Poland - Allegro Group. It is a story about learning throughout an Agile experiment to get the most out of it. Primarily the experiment was intended to challenge the existing bonus system based on forced ranking. It turned into appreciation and feedback system with some sweets involved. 

    This feedback system has grown to more that 230 people involved from 3 different physical locations and still grows virally. We made a structure in which there is a coordinator in each location. If at least part of scrum team plays the game, SM is the first line contact. He distributes credits and exchanges them for sweets. Also cooperates with coordinator who is responsible for making sure system works well in his location.
    Iterations are now 2 weeks. We introduced a requirement that credit has to be filled in with short description what you thank for, in order to be exchanged. This was to promote written thank you’s and avoid situations where people hand over credits just to get sweets.
    Also every quarter we change credits appearance so that the previous credits cannot be exchanged for sweets. This is to set a time box and “flush the system”.

    Is it for me?

    Do you feel your team could be more engaged in their work? Trying to get rid of silos in your organization? Then this is for you.

    Get inspired by this simple game, in which there are several instant feedback loops, fun, gambling and sweet prizes.

    Agile is a radical evolution in how we think about work flow – AND how we engage people’s intelligence and commitment in the process. So now we’re doing a faster, better, more engaging job of ….. What? And Why? The “What” and “Why” questions are the stuff of strategy – purpose, vision, customer value, competitive advantage and sustainable financial performance.

     OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) are the missing link between agile practices and alignment with the larger mission and purpose of your enterprise. Developed in Silicon Valley and adopted by industry leaders including Intel, Google and LinkedIn, OKRs are the framework for individuals and teams to set their own goals and align agile action with overall business strategy.

     In this workshop, we will explore

    • How business strategy is evolving from a waterfall model to an agile approach
    • Extending the idea of “cadence” to include ceremonies for enterprise-wide strategic conversations that create “line of sight” for individuals and teams
    • The use of OKRs as goalposts for strategic alignment and agile action

While they are going through an Agile transformation, they also need to maintain transparent financial governance and reporting.

    “When will it be done?” That is the first question your customers ask you once you start work for them. And, for the most part, it is the only thing they are interested in until you deliver. Whether your process is predictable or not is judged by the accuracy of your answer. Think about how many times you have been asked that question and think how many times you have been wrong. Now think about how much harder it is to answer that question when practicing Agile at scale. Your customers most likely feel like they have better odds of winning the lottery than they do of your next Agile project coming in on time. That you don't know your odds of success is not necessarily your fault. You have been taught to collect the wrong metrics, implement the wrong policies, and make the wrong decisions. Until now. This session will introduce how to utilize the basic metrics of flow to more effectively manage the uncertainty associated with very large scale software development. In it, we will discuss how to leverage the power of advanced analytics like Cumulative Flow Diagrams, Cycle Time Scatterplots, and Monte Carlo Simulations to drive predictability at all levels of the organization. Your customers demand better predictability. Isn’t it time you delivered?

    The metrics of flow provide a comprehensive, analytics driven methodology for agile development at scale. By capturing real-time flow metrics and by using powerful analytical tools such as the Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD), Cycle Time Scatterplot, and Monte Carlo Simulations one is able to more effectively manage the complexity associated with very large scale software development. Better management of complexity ultimately leads to better predictability.

    Further, these metrics provide transparency at all organizational layers. At the team level the metrics provide real-time information and act as a catalyst for continuous improvement; and at retrospectives the teams will always have the most accurate, critical and objective information upon which to base any action. For Scrum Masters and the team the metrics provide insight and levers to pull. This level of visibility is crucial to decision making as most organizations and teams can perform multiple types of work across varied layers of work-units.

    Similarly, at the enterprise and/or program level the metrics provide the transparency required to effectively manage complex and geographically distributed development and maintenance environments. One is able to track progress, productivity and pro-actively act on systemic issues such as infrastructure concerns, resource capacity, cross-team dependencies, and integration.

    Flow metrics are the most effective means to manage to predictable outcomes in an inherently uncertain field. The use of Scatterplots and Monte Carlo Simulation based on real historical metrics eliminates any need for subjective estimation. At all levels of an organization, these metrics provide much higher levels of confidence and more realistic projections.

    “It is good only for complicated tasks; there is no need to pair program on simple tasks.”

    These are some of the statements you may be hearing around you from experienced developers to even managers. Sadly, there is lack of understanding of dynamics that make pair programming a key agile engineering practice. This, in turn, resulted in lack of its acceptance in teams adopting agile methodologies.

    Agile manifesto highlights the importance of individuals and interactions over processes and tools and customer collaboration over contract negotiation, which implies the importance of human relationships over rationality. Research by Danial Goleman and scholars from Yale University have proven how critical is the role of Emotional Intelligence in building relationships and overall performance of individuals and teams in corporate setting.

    Understanding people and their emotions will be challenging, controlling self-emotions will be the next step and building relationship by controlling emotions of the other would be more challenging. But understanding emotions in a distributed setting when people don’t face each other will be the most challenging scenario. But people will remain emotional; hence Emotional Intelligence remains extremely important even in a distributed setting to understand each other and build relationship.       

    During this session I will discuss about the concept of emotional intelligence, latest research findings, how emotional intelligence could be applied by individuals and teams, challenges in a distributed setting and different approaches we have used to make people understand from a distance.

    I want to be controversial for a moment and propose an end to IT projects, project management & project managers. I propose that the entire project process is flawed from the start for one simple reason. If you need to run a project, you've already failed.

    By definition, an IT project is a temporary structure to govern and deliver a complex change (such as a new product or platform) into an organisation. However, to be truly competitive, an organisation needs to be able to deliver a continuous stream of change. Managed properly, this negates the need for a project and the associated cost overheads.

    This is fundamentally what #noprojects is. The approach, structure, tactics and techniques available to successfully deliver continuous change. At its core, #noprojects is predicated on the alignment of activities to outcomes, measured by value, constrained by guiding principles and supported by continuous delivery technologies.

    This presentation will introduce you to #noprojects. You will learn how to define an outcome and create an Outcome Profile. You will also learn how to manage change within the context of an outcome through the Activity Canvas.

    A common misinterpretation is that BDD is another way to automate the functional testing or just a synonym to Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD). However, it’s not correct understanding. BDD doesn’t talk about testing rather it focus on development which is driven by expected behaviour of application/system. It helps to share the understanding by examples among three amigos (BAs, Developers and Testers) and helps to explore unknown. It describes what business/end users want the system to do by talking through example behavior.

    In this workshop, the actual concept of BDD is explained using case study of various real-time projects. It also covers the myths, challenges, benefits and best practices along with tools used to adopt it.
