From Idea to production in few days

Hi! let me tell you the story about our Company and our journey to improve our business agility. First of all I want to clarify, this is not about agile transformation this is about a journey to improve our agility so that we can be more competitive in the market. This is a story of success, but also a story of struggle, is the story of how our company reduced the time to delivery features from idea to production from months to few days.

During the sessions we will explore real problems and solutions that helped us to reduce our time to market.

    Hello Oscar,

    Thank you for submitting the proposal on "From Idea to production in few days". Thanks for your time and efforts on this along with a detailed abstract and Time - Break up on each sub-topic.

    The Program Committee would require some more information from you to be able to review your proposal for all its aspects. It would be great if you could provide us with the link to Slides and Videos to your Previous Conferences/Presentations.

    In order to confirm completeness of the proposal, I'd suggest you to go through the following link to Overview of Review Process - https://confengine.com/review-process#selection-criteria

    We'll certainly keep you updated in case we need more information once you have updated your proposal for the required information through the relevant fields and as per the points mentioned in Overview of Review Process.

    Please let us know in case of doubts/queries,

    Thanks,

    Deepti

      Hi Oscar,

      Apologies for getting back so late on this. 

      Given that there are no links to any of you past presentations and videos it's hard for us to take it forward since the proposal is not complete. Your response to Deepti suggesting a Skype call is fine but we need to see some content of the proposal outline so that we go into the details when we meet. 

      Best,

      Ravi

        Dear Ravi,

        No worries, Sorry I also was late as I was traveling. 

        I will prepare some rough draft so that we can go through it (we can iterate ;) ) I will send you by tomorrow.

        Let's set a time for the call, we can timebox maybe 30 min to 1 hour. Would Wednesday evening be fine? also, how could I share with you my skype address for the call?

        Regards,

        Oscar

          Hi Oscar,

          Great; looking forward to see the draft version. This Wednesday does not work for me. Sorry.

          As soon we go over the draft one of us from the review team will revert to setup time if necessary.

           

          Best,

          Ravi

            Dear Ravi,

            Got it, please let me know the time to meet at least one day in advance so I can arrange my schedule as well.

            Just finalized the very first draft, still many iterations to go, but good as MVP (no need to keep on working if it doesn't gets approved :P )

            Regards,

            Oscar

              Hi Oscar,

              Thanks for the draft.

              The proposal summary and outline was around a case study that had got me excited which was about the journey to improve business agility and competitive advantage.

              I went through the draft and find it be more of Agile 101. Let me be honest here. For the review committee to consider this proposal there has to be some concrete points on how business agility and competitive advantage was achieved Ex. Context of business/product, challenges that had to be overcome, measurable results etc. I'm sure you may have those as talking points but those points can make a compelling case for selection over Agile 101.

               

              Best,

              Ravi

      Dear Deepti Tomar,

      Thanks for looking at my proposal. I have presented in multiple events related to agile:

      Agile Vietnam Conference 2016 & 2017, Vietnam Tech Expo 2016 & 2017 among others.

      I don't have any video at the moment of any of my past presentations. Instead of slides I would suggest to have a call on Skype or similar with some of the committee members to discuss about my proposal in detail. (This way we set people and interaction over processes and tools ;) )

      Regards,

      Oscar

        Dear Oscar,

        Thanks a lot for your response. That's very helpful.

        The program committee will keep you updated on the arrangement of a call for more details :-)

        In the meanwhile, it would be really great if you'd be able to provide us with the slides already available with you. If possible, you could also record a session explaining your proposal and provide the video link to us.

        Please let us know in case of any concerns,

        Thanks,

        Deepti
