    Hi Irshad,

    Thanks for submitting the proposal and answering Anand's question. The answer and the deck which you have provided the link doesn't resonate, i see the DAD implementation information.  Do you want to have a revise the deck and also can you show in your experience where you have adopted and what improvements you have seen.

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Irshad,

    I am from the proposal review committee and thanks for your proposal.

    Agile transformation and the right mindset is a very common challenge we see. Many books and presenters have spoken about this topic. This is a very common topic.

    What unique stuff are you planning to present in this talk. How would the audience be benefited from your talk?.

      Hi Anand,

            I'm planning to talk on Disciplined Agile Mind-set which is unique as it will combine Agile Mind-set with Disciplined Agile mindfulness. This unique blend will help servant leaders in facilitating agile solutions delivery with a disciplined and systems thinking approach. When adopted by agile team members, a disciplined mind-set will enhance their ways of working through self-discipline, enabling them to seek continuous improvement frequently and looking beyond the boundaries of respective agile methods & frameworks (such as Scrum, XP, Kanban) while adopting a hybrid approach tailored to fit the requirements of the hour. The aim is to improve agility at both team-level and at scale in multi-team environment with adopting a mind-set that encourages using good practices from multiple sources in a sustainable, symbiotic way.

    Todd Little - 7 Sins of Scaling and other Agile Antipatterns

     This is about agile “anti-patterns”: “something that looks like a good idea, but which backfires badly when applied” (Coplien). Todd has been around agile development from before it was called agile.  In that time, he’s seen teams fall into the trap of many of these anti-patterns, becoming stuck without ever realizing it. Frequently, this is due to a dogmatic understanding of what is right and wrong about scaling and agile development. The first step to getting unstuck is to be able to detect these “sins.” The presentation aims to expose teams to these common pitfalls and then also provide a vision for a virtuous path to take them to the Promised Land.
