Surprise is the feeling caused by something unexpected or unusual, As individuals become familiar to particular types of surprise, over time the level of surprise will decrease in intensity.

Chaos engineering is a discipline that uses similar principles to build resilient systems.

Our organization uses cloud native platform as a common frame work to run products as well as the tool frame work to support product development.

We are from DevOps experience team, Over 1350+ engineers use our product delivery platform to ship features by following agile methodology.

This talk is about how we learned from failures and used that knowledge to build a resilient and scalable CI/CD environment based on kubernetes, using chaos engineering principles.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the proposal. Can you share the slides and a preview video too? This will help the team to understand your presentation skills better.

    Also, can you add more details to the outline and learning outcome to make it easier for the audience to understand what they will take away? A few more details about your learnings, and a guideline about dos and don'ts might help.

    Thanks,

    Leena

    Dave Snowden - Is Mindset yet another agile buzzword?

    45 Mins
    Keynote
    Executive

    While it is true to say that people’s attitudes and beliefs are key to implementing an agile project, or Agile in itself, much of the use of the term ‘mindset’ implies a mental model that can be defined and engineered. In this presentation, we will look at how we can measure attitudes within an organization and use multiple small actions to trigger the rapid evolution of organizational culture, so that it can sustain agile developments. Mindset and the alignment-based ideas of some on the Agile movement too often imply creating homogeneous beliefs and values that will lead to full alignment. In practice, this damages resilience and can be dangerous. This presentation will introduce the idea of coherence instead of alignment - the celebration of cognitive and behavioral differences that can align if needed to support the delivery of sustainable solutions.

    Psychological Safety has been identified as a #1 condition for creating high-performing teams by Google’s Project Aristotle. Yet, many organizations today find themselves being affected by fear in the workplace. It manifests itself in employee's disengagement, lack of innovation and toxic working environments.
    How can we start taking the first steps away from the culture of fear and towards a culture of psychological safety?
    Join this interactive session to experiment with a new "Fear in the Workplace" and "Safety in the Workplace" games (designed by the speaker) and start these difficult conversations in a fun way. Discover a number of safety enhancers that can help you, your teams and your organization on this journey.
    Highly experiential, this session is designed with elements of Training from the Back of the Room and brings together “tried and true” practices from the years of coaching teams in US, Canada, Ireland and Japan.
    Join in to learn by doing and bring back a set of practices designed to significantly improve psychological safety in teams and organizations.

    Getting new teams to work together is hard. Really. Hard.

    Is it because there is so much hype around new Agile teams? Or is it because there is such a focus on “doing things right” (or “doing” Agile right), that we forget about the people actually doing the work? Regardless of the reason, before we can change the way people work... we need to focus on the things that are important for teamwork to work!

    We believe that the key to high-performance teams is creating an intentional culture that respects and embraces diversity - whether it be race, gender, class, culture, age, beliefs, language, skills or background. So join us as we explore the Team Canvas – sort of like a Business Model Canvas for teamwork - covering nine essential teamwork elements:

    • Purpose - Why we are doing what we are doing?
    • People & Roles - What are our names, roles, and responsibilities?
    • Common goals - What do we as a group want to achieve together?
    • Personal goals - What do I as an individual want to achieve?
    • Team values - What do we really stand for and believe in?
    • Needs and expectations - What do each of us need to be successful in a diverse team?
    • Rules & Activities - How do we communicate and keep everyone up to date?
    • Strengths & Assets - What skills do we have in the team?
    • Weaknesses & Risks - What are the weaknesses we have, as an individual and as a team?

    During this session, we walk through our agenda for team lift-offs, facilitation posters and preparation work required, materials needed, and facilitation tips and tricks. All packaged in a handy pocket guide, that you can use to explore tried and tested techniques for each essential element. You also have an opportunity to practice some of these techniques during the session.

    Imagine you are a Mad Agile Scientist and have a diabolical experiment to conduct - what would happen if you exchanged the brains of a Product Owner and Scrum Master? Mwuhahahaha!!! How would the body of a Product Owner with the brain of a Scrum Master act? And vice versa?

    Perhaps the Scrum Master would now treat the team like a backlog? This Scrum Master would be focused on value and maintaining a coaching backlog of team and person improvements. This Scrum Master is refining the team, crafting a group that delivers value.

    And perhaps the Product Owner might treat the backlog like a team? Rather than backlog refining, they coach the backlog. They would be focused on nurturing, protecting, and empowering the backlog. The backlog might transform from an irritation into a labor of love.

    Although this experiment sounds terrible, this change of perspective might be what you need to reanimate your dead team or backlog.

    Join the fun and come learn what horrifying results await!

    Just what exactly does an Agile Coach do? Coaches may vary in their response to this question. I would like to think that most Agile Coaches, with some variation, would be fairly consistent in how we perceive our role. However, some companies or orgs or people probably interpret the role of the Agile Coach in ways that coaches never intended.

    Let’s explore some of the things that Agile Coaches have been asked to do! Are these antipatterns? Doing what needs to be done? This session will delve into the topic of the role of the Agile Coach and highlight potential challenges and possible solutions.

    Case Study
    Intermediate

    Agile in Enterprise Resource Planning software development is more challenging when compared to full stack development. It is really challenging when the team has 80% detractors and 20% aggressive folks (transactional analysis nomenclature). As an agile transformation coach how would we bring in either the agile mindset or the trust over the process for teams who have worked on waterfall for ages? How would we break the cocoon or push them to come out of the easy zone by not preaching theories? we are inspired from Project Aristotle conducted at Google which speaks about the parameters of winning team which made us to introduce trust metric, the average time the team takes to trust the agile principles in practice. This trust metric directly correlates with the time it takes for the agile transformation in a project. From Modern Agile perspective, Trust metric /transformation time is influenced by major 5 parameters 1. Psychological safety 2. Dependability 3. Structure and Role 4. Meaning 5. Impact.

    All these five dimensions are influenced by multiple input parameters ranging from scrum Master's fluency in international languages, regional language, teams transparency with the scrum master, project complexity, team distribution, team unification through tools,openness to fail and innovate, cultural quotient, emotional intelligence of scrum master, team diversity and so on.

    The trust metric is computed by rating on all the five dimensions. Those five dimensions are measured by derived parameters which the agile coach perceives in the team. The agile coach would work on the sub layer level to convert the detractors to pacifiers and further to be Agile ambassadors by working closely on the lagging parameters by bringing in kaizens around those parameters.

    For example: the waterfall projects that I worked on got transformed to agile methodology were in detractor state at the beginning. Later on they were moved to pacifier state, then on to neutral and now they are Promoters/ambassadors of the agile methodology which got propagated to the complete service line. Thus the transformation coach can make various projects running in the service industry to get their projects transformed to agile methodology which brings in great impact for clients

    The craft of Agile Coaching fundamentally requires deep, insightful, meaningful communication. In everyday execution, this typically involves a coach and the coachees having a conversation, or dialog. However, there are other ways that an Agile Coach and their coachees can connect – nonverbal communication.

    Explore the different aspects of nonverbal communication in the domain of the Agile Coach! This workshop overviews nonverbal communication in Agile Coaching and provides a starting point for developing this critical skill.

    The Agile Manifesto establishes a set of four values that are people-centered and results driven. As we all know, while there is value in the items to the right, we value the items on the left more. In my workshop, I will focus how the agile value "individuals and interactions over processes and tools" is leveraged during the design thinking using neuro-linguistic programming techniques.

    When we are in the journey of transformation, we want to be an agile organization. To be an agile organization, while we focus on value delivery, the need to empathize with our internal and external customers is important, so that we understand their requirement and bring in value to them. This can be done by the way we interact with empathy while we work on the user requirement and designing their journey. So let us explore how to "Artfully Empathize"

    How do we understand what our customers/stakeholders need from us?

    One of the most important customer-centric approach is to understand their need by asking the right questions, listening and empathizing.

    How do we develop the art of asking the right questions with empathy?

    HCD - The best way to innovate for someone is to understand them. By understanding a person’s thoughts, motivations, emotions, barriers, etc., you can identify their needs, and design to meet those needs. Human Centered Design is a known framework that provides solutions to problems involving a human perspective. Now the uniqueness of the workshop will include NLP techniques that will help empathize effectively.

    NLP – Using NLP, we will learn about our modalities and meta-models, which is a language pattern that encourages the listener to move to higher levels of thinking and help them explore the unknowns. It will empower us to explore our potential to ask the right questions. We will leverage this technique in our workshop to focus on the Empathy and Design phase of the HCD.

    Welcome to the exploration journey of being artfully empathetic!

    While the market space is composed of known and unknown market space. i.e. industries in existence today and industries not in existence today. Usually strategies are good enough to compete in known markets and built on past experience because the competitive rules of game are pretty much known. The focus is to outperform their competition and grab a greater share of existing market space by exploiting the demand.

    In this, presentation we will look into why the competitive strategic approach is not enough to seize the new profit or growth opportunities in unknown markets. In practice, the competitive strategy creates the market space crowded and reduce the prospects for profits and growth by making products more as commodities. The presentation will introduce the idea for, how to envision a product strategy to create a uncontested new market space that made a competition irrelevant?

    Demonstration
    Intermediate

    During an application development and release lifecycle, the application is deployed multiple times for different usecases. It can be for developer test, integration test, functional test, performance test, security test. For each of these usecases it is important that application is deployed in a consistent manner.

    One of the common anti-pattern in DevOps world is developers, QA engineers and Ops engineer developing their own automation to deploy same application for similar purpose. This results in

    • Siloed automation
    • Unscalable and monolithic deployment design
    • Inefficeincy as each team/engineer keep re-inventing the wheel
    • Large spread of technology used which becomes unmaintainable over time
    • Mostly poor quality of automation

    The solution to this is a centralized deployment automation framework which is developed using a self-service catalog centric approach which provides developers with reusable automation components and deployment models. Users can use these components and models to create their own deployment topology. This deployment topology is available as a catalog offering which can be used and re-used by one and all.

    In this talk, we would demonstrate about how in Micro Focus we have created a modular and self-service deployment catalog centric framework using our own product Hybrid Cloud Management and how it has accelerated the DevOps culture within the organisation by enabling inner sourcing, reusablity and standardization.
