How do you know if Agile is right for you? The success of an Agile transformation in an enterprise depends on a number of factors – the experience of the teams, the type of software you’re building, the availability of resources, the iron triangle of scope, schedule, and budget, and last but not least the corporate culture. This session will provide an overview of a survey instrument to assess critical success factors for Agile within an organization to help the leadership team decide whether Agile is a good fit.

    Becky Winant - Moving Culture Change

    45 Mins

    Agile transformation means introducing change. If you work for an organization that hasn't changed in a while, introducing new approaches can feel like a lot of work and even more pain. This applies to any "not fully” or “not quite agile" organizations. Large IT groups often fall in this area, but it can happen anywhere when change is scary or seen as a high risk in the culture. This session introduces the Satir Change Model of human behavior with the addition of choice points and ways you can intervene. Change can trigger chaos, yet choice offers opportunity. Where could you look for new options? How can we guard against reverting to old ways and move to new learning and practice?

    Becky Winant - How Collaboration Works or Doesn't

    45 Mins

    Agile meetings do not always go smoothly. Especially when you work in a geographically distributed team or get moved from one team to another. How can you discover what might be going on when things go awry? This session will have a brief simulation of a meeting. Three volunteers will play agile roles with typical challenges we experience. As a group we will share observations about the interactions, and what we thought we understood, but may not have. This session introduces the Satir Interaction Model and a broader understanding of how we might correct mis-interpreted behavior and commenting.
