Better SAFe than sorry - What makes SAFe such an effective framework to support Digital Transformation?

The presentation will demonstrate why SAFe is the most widely adopted agile scaling framework by global international companies and gaining traction in India. SAFe’s practices have evolved from Agile practices and methods, Lean product development, systems thinking, and observation of successful enterprises.

This presentation will introduce the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe version 4.5), including its core values, principles, and practices, along with a roadmap for implementation. The presentation will explain the roles that are needed to successfully deliver value at scale. SAFe provides guidance and training for scaling Agile development across the portfolio, large solution, program, and team levels. The presentation will describe the most critical elements needed to realize the Framework’s benefits.

    Case Study

    Twitter has rapidly evolved in how we do Machine Learning over the last few years. We rapidly evolved from making incremental improvements to our existing Logistic Regression models to a wave of new Deep Learning architectures. At the same time, we were faced with the challenge of uneven distribution of ML expertise across the company. This is the story of the Cortex team that enabled this machine learning transformation across the entire company by making a set of careful strategic investments.

    Organizations can improve their Agile scaling efforts by focusing on 5 common challenges: the way teams are chartered, how people come together to form teams, how their values and working agreements are protected, how they are helped to remove impediments, and how they learn to improve what they deliver based on feedback. These common challenges can derail and distract the efforts of the organization to reap the benefits of agile, empirical product delivery. This presentation discusses these challenges and strategies organizations can use to overcome them.

    Steve Porter - What every Scrum team needs to know about Kanban

    Beginner
    Scrum is the most popular agile framework practised today, but because it's just a framework, teams are required to add practices so that it's effective in that team's unique context.
    Kanban can be one of those practices, however many myths about both Scrum and Kanban stop Scrum teams from getting the most out of their Kanban implementation. If not done correctly, not only will you gain fewer benefits, but you could hurt your existing Scrum team.
    In this session, Scrum.org's Steve Porter will review the work he's been doing with members of the Kanban community to come up with a set of practices that will make your Scrum teams more effective and ensure that you implement your Kanban practices to maximize their impact.

    Kurt Bittner - Focus on Outcomes, not Features, for Better Product Results

    Traditional product management focuses on features, things that the application will do, to define products and releases. Features specify how the application will work. They are outputs of the development effort. Product managers and users find defining outputs very easy, but features often fail to deliver the business results that their proponents imagine. What's missing is a clear focus on the outcomes the customer or user is trying to achieve. Better understanding outcomes help product managers and Agile teams understand what customers really need, and to build "experiments" to help them improve their understanding of customer needs. This presentation will explore the benefits of an outcome-oriented approach to product and portfolio management, and how to make it work, including what it means to Agile teams.
