    We represent the Agile Center of Excellence at our Organization and are chartered to drive the change management initiative to imbibe Agile adoption across the enterprise.

    We plan to share our experience on the Organization Change Management initiative that we took up to drive Agility across the organization.  Our journey towards the derived vision and strategy to increase Agility in the system to thereby achieve:

    • Nimble simplified processes.
    • Ability to respond faster to change.
    • And most critical: delivering increased customer value.

    This is a continuous improvement journey and we initiated:

    • Structured multilevel communications of CHANGE to the teams.
    • Learning + Unlearning:  Structured Training and Development plans (Behavioral and Technical).
    • Bringing in Gamification as a tool to get millennial team members to learn quicker.
    • Approach to move from “Pyramid” to “Hour Glass” structure to align with the flat team structure.
    • Pilot: Career Development Framework Aligned to Agile structure and roles.
      • Bringing in change of G&O to align with Agile delivery
      • Enabling Talent Fulfilment to align to the Agile roles and structure

    Over the last decade, eXtreme Programming practices like User Stories, Evolutionary Design, Test-Driven Development (TDD), Behavior Driven Developer (BDD), Refactoring, Continuous Integration and Automation have fundamentally changed software development processes and inherently how engineers work.

    Having experienced various benefits from XP practices on our J2EE stack, our team started to apply these practices to extract, transform, and load (ETL) and Data Analytics side of our product. Unfortunately, there is very little guidance available in this context, esp. for the SAS Platform. Right from finding the unit testing framework to structuring the code to designing our modules and setting up a Continuous Integration builds, our team had to figure out everything, the hard way.

    Join us to understand the challenges we faced during this process and how we resolved these challenges.

    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.
