Sick and Tired? You don’t need a Physician: Try Personal Kanban

All of us are simply getting stressed because of multiple events happening in our life and hence we are not able to achieve the greatest goal of our life in time and sometimes never.

This session I shall talk about why this is happening to you and what is the solution.

Idea of this session is to shed some light on power of Personal Kanban and real life examples to save from being Sick and Tired 
Kanban can be implemented in most walks of life. Knowingly or unknowingly few of us use it in few aspects of daily routine.

It would be focused on ways to improve productivity in your life and achieving your goals and biological and psychological aspect of it....

It would be a workshop mode session where in we would understand whats happening to us in our life and activities that lead us in this situation and will figure out how to get out of this and lead to successful life (Personal and Professional).

      Hi Rahul,

      We would touch upon tools, especially easy tools that we can prepare ourselves or a few which are already available free of cost which are already tried and tested by many.

      We would do an exercise during session which demonstrates losses of not planning our personal work and focussing on it at a time.

      We would relate this to the brain study and how it works. Especially the brain response and how to master it in different scenarios.

      We have mostly drawn references from LKU and KidsKanban

    Sounds interesting. It is a challenge to change some old habits, in personal or professional life. Hope this topic covers some easy to implement steps and methods that can be further taught to others. Looking forward for this

      Rahul,

      You said it right. It helps and this is an interactive session with few exercises where people would also think for them and at time will get insights. from earlier session people came and talked to me and told that they never thought that our brain works this way and they also started implementing... Have a great day ahead..

    Seems interesting but does it really help in day to day life?

    Is it really practical to implement the solutions you propose in real life?

    In today's era, managing multiple things become a challenge. I am assuming this will be a solution to the said problem statement. Look forward for panel to accept this topic for Agile India 2017.

    Mob Programming is a development practice where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and on the same computer. It is a whole-team approach to doing all the work the team does including designing, coding, testing, and working with the customers, users and other stakeholders. This is an evolutionary step beyond pair programming and accentuates face-to-face communication, team alignment, collaboration, and self-organizing team concepts of the Agile approach to software development.

    Mob Programming can be a highly effective approach to software development. There are numerous teams doing Mob Programming all over the world, including distributed teams, and there has been a great deal of positive reports of success. Please join me as I share how the concept got started, the benefits, techniques we use, and some of the problems we've faced.

    Agile Principle # 12 defines that at regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly. From Scrum to Kanban and other agile frameworks, this is accomplished through retrospectives and continuos improvement processes. The key to being a successful agile practitioner is to identify areas of improvement and then experiment ways of improving it. But it doesn't stop there; positive improvements ultimately become success stories for other teams and motivates them to experiment with newer ideas which eventually leads to innovation. A negative outcome isn't bad either since it adds to the experience of situations where ideas may not apply. Thus the key to this process lies in being a child, an explorer, and inculcate an experimentation mindset. The SLICE framework addresses this in the following way:

    • S hare: Share an area of improvement
    • L earn: Explore the area for ways of improvement
    • I mplement: Search & apply the learning to identify the success factors
    • C ollateral: Publish blogs, white papers, presentations, etc. as observations of the implementation
    • E xpansion: Grow, Seed, and Split in order to explore new venues for success

    In this workshop, I create an environment that inculcates an experimentation mindset and utilize the SLICE framework to drive the exploration.

    Technical debt is a very common phenomenon; in fact it occurs with virtually every line of code whether you want it or not. Although unoptimized coding due to the rush presented by management pressure may be one of the major reasons for technical debt, it occurs in various flavors based on the nature of execution. Sometimes, even the best written code may run into debt by introducing a minimalistic change in the business definitions, e.g.: a variable name that makes no sense anymore.

    This debt cause and effect is exponentiated when scaled teams come into play. In many cases these teams are distributed and an optimized code for one team may become a debt for another. These debt dependencies between teams is what creates the "Valley of Debt". Unfortunately these cannot be avoided but good engineering practices coupled with lean principles may keep them confined for long enough in order to push the validity of software applications.

    Sooner or later, the cost of change will outweigh the benefit of an application and turn it into legacy; the challenge is to keep it as far as possible by slowing down the fall into the valley of debt. In this (non-PPT) interactive workshop, we will witness first hand how debts are introduced and how these can be confined by utilizing good engineering practices coupled with lean principles.

    Is the scaling framework your organization is on helping you to be Agile or pretend to be Agile? How about drafting one that stays true to Agile principles and helps with what your organization needs most while scaling

    While there are a many frameworks available to scale Agile it is important to see if these prescriptions address the real problems that an organization have while scaling up.  Does one size fits all? Is it worth adopting a framework and then retrofitting your organization into it or it makes more sense to understand the dynamics of your organization, the existing challenges and business objectives and carve out a scaling approach, keeping Agile principles intact, that suits the organizations needs best.

    This interactive workshop is about discovering the best approach to create your own scaling framework, one that is custom made to respond to your organization’s needs.

    Intermediate

    When a company thinks about transformation or a change from legacy traditional software development models to Agile, they first think of bringing in External coaches or Scrum experts. In another situation when the companies want to increase their maturity in agile, they still will want to hire people from outside who are experts in this arena. This discussion is all about how we could groom people internally to sustain and increase the credentials within the organization rather than relying always on external coaches.

    Original Research
    Beginner

    This session is intended to provide an overview of status of agile implementation practices.  The findings are based on survey data collated from selected agile practitioners from 14 different software organizations spread across the globe. The survey was designed based on agile manifesto and Twelve Principles of Agile Software Development and most commonly used Agile Scrum and XP practices. The survey includes 54% of response from new product development, 32% from enhancement projects and remaining 14% from maintenance and support projects. Results are summarized as most effectively implemented practices, most widely recommended practices, least implemented practices and practices which always need modifications / tailoring based on any given project or organization environment.  

    The objective of this study is following

    • To do an in-depth analyze of implementation of established agile practices from practitioners point of view based on data collected from the survey.
    • Understand any correlation the survey results are having with the already conducted surveys and published literature on Agile practices
    • Provide food for thoughts to practitioners community to fine tune or elaborate agile practices which may lead to update of standard reference materials

    Most of us think Scrum Masters are the change agents for a company to transform from any traditional way of software development to Agile. We also think the Scrum Masters are not needed after we are matured enough to take the baton ahead. This topic will cover most of the myths of whether Scrum Master role is a full-time role or can get done away with.
