We like who we are becoming! - Culture Change at Scale
Cultural change is hard and in big organizations, it is even tougher to effect.
When it happens, it happens gradually.
As change agents and coaches, who are working on the ground everyday, sometimes it feels like there is no change happening at all.
The trick is to take a step back, move away from the bits and bytes, and take a look at the longer, broader picture.
So we did just that and the results are heartening.
We would like to share the cultural evolution in Amdocs Delivery and how being Agile is gradually being built into the fabric of our organization.
And we would like to share it through images, info-diagrams, pictures - we like to think of it as a time-lapse representation of the change we are undergoing.
We like who we are becoming - and we would like to share our story with you!
Who are we?

Nuisances of structure in a large scale product developmentMohammad Nafees Butt
schedule 10 months agoSold Out!
Many adopting organizations treat Agile/Scrum like a shiny new project management overlay for development teams and invest their entire energies to extract every ounce of productivity without any significant structural changes to support it. Supplemented with anecdotal observations, this talk discusses the symptoms and nuisances of this anti-pattern in context of a large product development group with multiple and distributed Scrum teams. The session then describes the principles and experiments of Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) that organizations can use to avoid the pitfalls. More importantly, it highlights the laws of organizational behaviour and how structure influences both culture & strategy and how it can be the most important catalyst for unleashing creativity and a successful Agile adoption at scale by nurturing and fostering "smart creatives".
From Traditional Performance Management to Iterative Performance FlowFabiola Eyholzer
schedule 11 months agoSold Out!
Traditional Performance Management systems are in deep crises. Their industrial era approach is unable to meet the demands and thinking of 21st century people and organizations.
Join this interactive workshop to discuss how Lean | Agile enterprises can push the reset button and move from an administrative Performance Management process to a successful iterative performance flow.
This is a highly participative open space-style session and we will cover questions like:
– Why is there a need to push the reset button on Performance Management?
– How do we approach goal settings in an agile environment? What is the best balance between collective vs. individual goals? Can you align individual goals with agile thinking?
– Why is there a trend to eliminate employee appraisals? Are 360-feedbacks the new employee appraisals? Can we still promote people without appraisals and less/no hierarchical structure?
– How valid are traditional bonus models or are there better ways for remuneration and acknowledgement?
