    Thanks for your proposal Vishu. Your sessions are always insightful and I believe these are relevant for the professionals in terms of building their mental horsepower on the road to developing an agile mindset. I have two questions:

    1. I didn't see much of AI or Digital in the deck. Is that relevant for your talk, or you want to drop it make it more generic
    2. There is a lot of content in those slides. Would you be able to cover it all in sufficient depth in 20 minutes?

      Thanks Tathagat. I'm not going to talk about AI/Digital as Technology, but I will be talking about how AI/Digital solutions need  diverse cross-disciplinary skills to collaborate together, for which EI is extremely critical. 

      I re-looked at the content after your question. You are right. I think I will not be able to do justice in 20 min. I am trying to figure out how to change it to 40 min slot.

    45 Mins
    Case Study
    Advanced
    The case study revolves around an enterprise responsible for back and middle office financial investment services with 550 members. Agile practices have been adopted for three years with limited improvement in their deliverables. Sev 1s and 2s were common and deliveries delayed by 6 months were commonplace.
    The case study is to provide the building blocks required
    1. Steps at the start of the 2nd gen transformation
    2. How to balance the need for standardisation and provide custom solutions
    3. Create a mirror of awareness using agile maturity assessment tools
    4. Create Jira based tools to help product teams to reduce overheads and make decisions
    Lastly sustain those practices.
    In the process of this case study, one can understand the anti-patterns that have been in place and how to enable the organization to break them up.
    The changes and interventions will be walked through with different product examples such as Tax, Analytics, Mainframe BO and Accounting applications.

    Shiv Sivaguru - Thinking of Business Agility? Think Ecosystem

    20 Mins
    Experience Report
    Beginner

    Business agility requires thinking beyond making internal practices agile.

    While agility at team and multi team levels are reasonably well known, making a larger enterprise – whether it is a business unit or a full business agile, requires one to think beyond the normal team and organizational boundaries.

    One of the most quoted example has been the success of the iPod, which created the iTunes model for flexible licensing.

    There are other, more recent examples as well, from some of the unicorns.

    This session will share how two organizations – one in manufacturing and another in media tech space – approached business agility from this perspective.

    In our Agile transformation process, my team and I tracked sprint confidence every day for 2 sprints. This data allowed us to identify personal attitudes toward the sprint goal and the level of confidence different team members had in the full completion of the sprint. The result was a very interesting insight that sparked an honest conversation and acknowledgment that something was different in the way each of us interpreted the sprint goals, something that we had to clear out among ourselves before it became a bigger problem.
