ScrumBan Recipe – A pinch of this, a handful of that

Our talk will focus on the evolution of the Agile implementation in Amdocs.

While Kanban is widely implemented in the Amdocs Delivery unit, recently we have started experimenting with Scrum in pockets.

Taking it a step further, not wanting to lose out on our learning from Kanban, we are trying ScrumBan in a large scale project.

We will share the approach, the challenges and what we have adopted from Scrum and Kanban in this implementation.

A brief introduction to Amdocs - Amdocs is a leading provider of Customer Experience systems and services in the telecommunications domain, typically doing large scale transformation projects.

      Hi Naresh

      Thanks for your interest. I should have something from a recent Knowledgehut conference - i am trying to get the video from Knowledghut. In the meantime, would it help you to see a short clip from a presentation that Sutap and I did for an internal audience in Amdocs?

      If yes, i will find a way to share it with you.

      Regards

      Vinaya

      Due to the business benefits which accrue from Agile, clients are demanding their IT Departments/Partners to adopt Agile. It is quite common to find a situation where the client has adopted Agile, but its Partner/Vendor has not.


      This talk is based on my consulting engagement with a client who had adopted Agile and their partner had not, and the client wanted the partner to Adopt Agile.


      The talk will cover the critical challenges encountered in getting the partner to adopt Agile, especially given the wide difference in cultures of both organizations and also the organizations being located in different continents. The talk will also cover the key learnings from this journey.

      This is a collection of real time case studies of failed projects. It is an autopsy of these failed projects studying why these projects failed and how application of agie principles could have saved them.

      It is also a study into the organizational culture, behavioral attributes and the people issues and how agile addresses them.

      And finally it is a study of why doing a few projects with agile is not sufficient. How complete organizational transformation into agile practices is necessary for long term success for projects, processes and people.
