Building Blocks for Agile Transformation in Digital World

Today's enterprises operate in highly complex and uncertain digital environment and Agile adoption is highly challenging in such large organizations.

Digital transformation typically involves implementing digital technology to any aspect of the business, introducing disruptive technologies or moving from paper to digital. Enterprises are focusing on leveraging digital channels which include search engines, social media platform, email platform, mobile platform and their websites to find and connect with the current and prospective customers. Digital transformation accompanied by Agile transformation provides an opportunity to improve processes with customer centric approach and not just technological upgrade. Digital technologies can facilitate process change however they are not central to the change. Agile can assist the organisation in working out how the new system might shape better processes and vice versa.


While the context for each Digital-Agile transformation is different and there are several scaling models available, the components of the Agile implementation road map which ensure outcome are of universal nature.


In this session we will cover our model for building the roadmap and the activities to be carried out by Agile leaders and Agile Coaches for successful Agile implementation at scale for Digital transformations. The model covers why to? How to? What to? When to? and Duration? for each component on the roadmap. The model will lay foundation for crafting the Agile implementation strategy and also to write the Agile implementation business case for any Digital transformation. The model is based on our practical experience of large scale Agile implementations.

      Vishal Prasad - SLICE - The Experimentation Framework

      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.

      In October 2016 I received a call, "Hey dude, I don’t know nothing about Agile, but I need to become an Agile coach a-s-a-p – my company just got a new contract." I laughed for a second, explained that it takes a bit longer than a week to learn to coach, and wished him luck. I also knew that, shortly, he would be walking into his customer's office in this new role.

      Agile Coach is the new black! But how can you, a good coach, stand out from the crowd of less competent peers? Let me offer you this workshop to explore the science of coaching and the ways in which it works. We start with concepts of neuroplasticity and the brain processes of creating new neuron pathways. Then we move to motivation and learn which type is the best. Finally, we finish with the discussion on brain activation states which we practice in a few short exercises. By understanding the new field of coaching psychology, you will become a better practitioner.

      Intermediate

      Agile transformations are no child's play. There is inertia, restlessness, impatience and the constant desire to run away. Traits that anyone who has been a parent to little kids has encountered, and learnt in their own way how to handle.

      This session looks at parallels between parenting and trying to influence teams through an agile transformation. We look at some of the things that successful parents do that can be done by leaders trying to take their teams through a transformation.

      Because if teams sometimes behave like children, the leader needs to be a parent too!

      Agile adoption crafts innovation in the DNA of the organization. At every iteration boundary, review leads to evaluation of the business and technical stories, customer feedback and inspect & adapt cycle.

      Unintentionally or intentionally business agility leads to technical agility with the outcome of software being delivered to the customer which has inherently gone through several innovation cycles.

      Technical Agility for innovation requires through implementation of Agile Architecture.

      In this session I will talk about Agile Architecture, Agile designs and guidelines,Role and Agile mindset for Architects which will help to catalyze the innovation.
