The back bone of a sustainable Agile Transformation!

Adopting to Agile has become a norm, almost every organization seems to be aiming for it! Many organizations have a great start with much rigor and enthusiasm, but are they really able to sustain is the question. How many of them are really able to put up with it!

'The back bone of a sustainable Agile Transformation!' talks about tackling such challenges in the long run! In this session I would be sharing my experiences that I have consolidated during my work with different clients.

    Thanks Madhavi,

    for your proposal! I have a more generic question - do you think you could present this session in a more condensed form in 20min as well?

    Thanks!

      Hi Jutta, thank you for reviewing the proposal. In the 45 min slot,  a video on change management and an activity to simulate thinking for sustenance are included. If I cut these two down, I can consolidate and touch upon the key points and present this in 20 min as well. Request you to please let me know if you would like me to change this to a 20 min report, I will update the outline accordingly. Thank you.

            Hi Madhavi,

            hm after some discussions - it would be great if you could make the adjustments so that it turns into a 20min session. Thank you! - Jutta

    Hello Madhavi,

     

    Interesting proposal! However, I am not able to get the gist of discussion that you plan to conduct. For instance, the outline of the session suggests that the central theme would be the 'factors and practices that assist the transformation journey' with specific focus areas highlighted. This seems bit generic. It would help if you could provide some pointers to the specific discussion points that you would be covering under each of the focus areas. More importantly, as the session is an experience report, how will this proposal go beyond the textbook versions available on agile transformation?

    I request you to update the proposal along these lines.

     

    Regards,

    Ashay

      Hi Ashya, Thank you for reading through the proposal. I would be talking about the practices that would help lead to a sustainable transformation. The discussions would be generic, not specific to a particular client.  I call it an experience report because I would be sharing my thoughts based on my experience of working on different engagements. Not all the points would be available in textbooks, may be few of them could be found. I have updated the proposal with the focus areas detailed. Hope it helps, thank you.
