Enabling Agile teams...from Ohh to WOW
Outline/structure of the Session
-Background context: We will share the setting, nature of work and process model as it was. What were the problems and what was the wish list.
-Hear our experience from implementing Agile practices in a team.
-We will share How we spread it to other Scrum teams. What ideas/techniques and tools we used.
-Challenges we faced, both from people, mgmt and tools. Like one of the challenge was that people were very used to old tools and needed the continuity of data. Other challenge was the wrong assumptions about Agile like go live date cannot be derived.
-Improvisations team did to work around roadblocks like the concept of presprint.
-How does the picture look now. How the current setup works. How with this being success the bottlenecks have been removed and team is now self organized and empowered to drive the releases
-Summary : In the end we plan to give a step by step guide that worked for us to empower the team and foster the culture of self-organize.

On Agile teams, collaboration is the way of life. Our leaders want their team members to work closely with each other, have shared goals and even think as one entity. Why? Because we believe that collaboration leads to happier, more productive teams that can build innovative products/services.
It's strange that companies use the word collaboration very tightly with innovation. Collaboration is based on consensus building, which rarely leads to visionary or revolutionary products/services. Innovative/disruptive concepts require people to independently test out divergent ideas without getting caught up in collaborative boardroom meetings.
In this presentation, Naresh Jain explores the scary, unspoken side of collaboration and explains in what context, collaboration can be extremely important; and when it can get in the way or be a total waste of time.
